SpineOut : April - May 2017
Book Review Shasha, Age 12 Wellington Secondary College Mulgrave Vic A Girl Called Owl Amy Wilson Macmillan O wl is a strange girl with a unique mother, a best friend, Mallory, and a father she never knew. When a new boy at school arrives, he, Mallory and Owl find out who her father is and try to solve every other problem that comes with it. Once I started reading, I could not stop. The suspense and unanswered questions that were asked by me (the reader) and even Owl herself, about Owl and her family, were so interesting I had to keep reading to get the answer. Every time a question was answered, more questions were to come from that. I personally adored Owl, as she is an independent, strong and sometimes stubborn girl, which I think most girls can relate to. Overall, it was an amazing book but occasionally, in my opinion, there were excessive details. I would rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Recommended for book clubs.
