The Girls at 17 Swann Street
Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on The Girls at 17 Swann Street by debut author Yara Zgheib. Here’s the opening to my review:
A ballerina allows herself to be admitted to a facility for the treatment of eating disorders after collapsing. As she meets and gets to know the other girls in the facility, she gains strength from their stories and learns to reevaluate her own body image. Author Yara Zgheib’s debut novel takes readers inside the mind in heartbreaking detail of a person suffering from anorexia but misses the mark on the story level in her first book The Girls at 17 Swann Street.
Have a great night, readers!
