Things A Bright Girl Can Do
Evelyn wants to go to university get a job but her parents don't approve,to achieve her goals she joins the suffragettes and is prepared to do anything to help their cause. May and her mother have always supported the suffragists but when May meets Nell at a suffragette meeting she too is drawn into their cause. May and Nell are saphists, they won't be accepted into society if anyone knew. Evelyn dosen't want to just be a mother but everyone thinks that is her duty. Can this change and will women get the vote.
Things a Bright Girl can do covers an incredibly interesting topic and uses different peoples perspectives to show how the war affects each person differently. In my eyes Things a Bright Girl can do lacks energy. Some parts attract your attention and engage you, but other sections just let you go. Many people will find this book a good read so give it a try but it just wasn't the book for me. this book will be most enjoyable for ages 11 or 12+ it is worth trying to read as it gives you information about the suffragettes and suffragists.
