Review: The Female of the Species

The Female of the Species

by Mindy McGinnis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this is the best book I have yet read from Ms. McGinnis. She pulls no punches in discussing the truths of sexual assault but at the same time prevents the gory details from overshadowing the story. I felt the characters had depth and truth. Their stories and dilemmas are echoed throughout high schools across the country, familiar angst we all recognize. This story deals with all too familiar situations we are now, as a society, attempting to bring out into the open. Behaviors we need to shine a light on and name, in order to curb. Thank you, Ms. McGinnis for handling such a diffcult subject with warmth, tact and honesty.
