it's by Rachel Simmons and you can buy it here:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Odd-Girl-Out...98955&s r=8-3

it's sparked off a million thoughts in my head and I'd really recommend it.

Thanks!
I've just ordered it from the library! [I work in one!] So hopefully it'll come.

wow, that makes me happy! be sure to post your comments or pm me with your thoughts or whatever, I'd love to share what's been going through my head with someone and I've been writing pages in my notebooks since I started it. I'm so jealous you work in a library!! Although I'm in a uni so that's nearly as good, I get free borrowing rights from the library.

I will do. :) I may have to do an Inter Library Loan if it doesn't come from our consortium.
I was bullied - mobbed - by a large group of girls in my year for 10 years, so it's of deep personal interest to me.

well i hope it gives you the same hope it's given me, because it suddenly felt like it was ok to be me again. A lot of it is to do with the way women are socialised not to display anger in the traditional ways (ie physical agression) so they develop other, manipulative ways to get to each other and about how this can affect the individual and their future relationships and things. I'm only about 120 pages in at the moment but I'm finding it really good.

^ It sounds good.. & I'm glad it's helped you. I might read it at some point.

I've just started 'Brave New World' by Aldous Huxley. I've been meaning to read it for ages! So far it's good, but I've read like, one chapter.

Oooo good book, BNW. I read it for a Totalitarianism and Lit. module at uni.

I'm reading Faith by Lesley Pearse. About 100 pages to go. Then I'm onto Notes from an exhibition.

Oh I love that one. He was definitely one of the best thinkers of his age.
I'd definitely recommend Odd Girl Out. I've got about half way through now and she's been talking about manipulation by girls to other girls for power.

i hate reading more than one book at once. but! i have to at the moment.

i'm reading:
evelyn waugh - vile bodies (for uni).
philip pullman - northern lights (for my own amusement).

i hope brave new world is good. i have to read it next week for uni :].
at oxfam today aswell, i started reading a book called smashed, it's like an autobiography of some teenage alcoholic girl. it was reallyyy good, so i bought it, but i don't know when i'll get 'round to reading it all the way through.



take what you love
burn it down.

Currently reading a trilogy by Sara Douglass, Battleaxe, Enchanter and Starman. A bit slow at places, but a brilliant story. Just finished two books by Stuart Hill, Cry Of The Icemark and Blade Of Fire, I couldn't put them down



My scars remind me that the past is real.
I tear my heart open just to feel.

Well I have read any more of Eldest By Christopher Paolini, I am not even a quater of the way through! Really should try reading it and getting it finished.

Also trying to read i, Robot By Isaac Asimov

Also - So Much to Tell You By John Marsden

And finished Life on the Refrigeratior Door By Alice Kuipers

I am struggling to concentrate so can barely read at all at the moment but really want to be able to!



You made up your mind to torture mine!
If you read a scar like a book, you will relise the story in which you over look
red ribbons were weaving
upon the young girls skin.
a trail of red weaved deep,
caused by pain from within
