She has schoolwork to catch up on over the summer if she wants to graduate high school and Thea is determined to see her achieve it.

    I’m doing it. I’m DNFing my first book of 2018. Honestly, Valley Girls wasn’t egregious or offensive or really even that bad, but I was so utterly bored and indifferent I couldn’t continue. My biggest problem was likely my complete annoyance at main character, Rilla, who was forced to leave her home in West Virginia after some relationship problems and live with her park ranger sister in Yosemite valley.

    Like I said above, I didn’t really like Rilla at all. I’m honestly not ent

    Review Posted on Reading Lark 6/1/18: https://readinglark.blogspot.com/2018...

    I have read a string of contemporaries with main characters that are dealing with some pretty heavy stuff. Valley Girls falls into that category, but ended on a more hopeful note which made it slightly easier to digest.

    Rilla, the main character, has been put on a bus by her parents in West Virginia to live with her older sister who is working as a park ranger in Yosemite. Rilla isn't thrilled about this deve

    On the basis of Done Dirt Cheap, I kind of expected more of this book. That's not to say it wasn't good, or that my current fantasy/historical kick isn't behind why I didn't enjoy it as much, but it definitely contributed.

    Valley Girls tells the story of Rilla Skidmore, who's sent by her mother to live with her half-sister Thea in Yosemite, after a big fight with her boyfriend. There, she falls in with a group of climbers, including Walker, the apparen

    This is a great coming of age story that skips over many of the cliches and cringe-worthy scenes many teen novels feel necessary. Instead we see Rilla struggling, both internally and externally, to find her place in the world. She makes bad choices, justifies her decisions, and lives with the consequences. There is a strain of true-teen experiences in this novel I haven't found many other books.

    Aside from the coming of age strand, Rilla is learning to climb in one of the greatest climbing parks

    Rilla is shipped from West Virginia to Yosemite National Park to live with her half-sister Thea because she is the problem maker and partier back in her hometown. Before arriving at the Park, Thea vows to change her awful habits of partying and smoking drugs, claiming that she will enact revenge by turning into a different person than the one that everyone knows her to be. She forgets her vow upon descending into the park and befriends a fellow stoner and proceeds to get drunk and stoned and win ...more

    Thanks to NetGalley and Abrams for the ARC!

    When Rilla is shipped off to spend the summer with her older sister in Yosemite National Park she is livid. All her friends and her boyfriend will get to spend the summer together in West Virginia and Rilla isn't ready to let go, she isn't ready to be forgotten by all of them, especially because of the incident that caused her to be sent away.

    When she arrives at Yosemite, Rilla is blown away by the majestic beauty, the otherness of her
