Girl, Unframed by Deb Caletti is a young adult book I would recommend to everyone. Sometimes being thrown out of your comfort zone isn't a bad thing. It helps us grow, think of things in a new light, and can even make us exam things around us that we never noticed before. Girl, Unframed most of all, is a story about self-discovery. A story about growing up, finding out who you are and what you want in life with all the bumps and bruises that growing up gives you along the way. Really, it's the good, the bad, and the sometimes ugly about it all with a few brighter, sunnier moments thrown in. It is partly a YA thriller, you spend the whole book knowing that something terrible has happened and are waiting to figure out the specifics. There’s a dark, ominous feeling that permeates the whole story. However, much more of the book is about a teenage girl growing up and having to deal with the uncomfortable attention that she’s now getting from adult men. Another large focus of the story is her strained relationship with her mom, who places her relationships with men and career over her own daughter.
