Tough Girl Read ä 108 Escapes in daydreams battling aliens with her alter ego Tough GirlWhen Reggie's mother disappears her fantasy life spirals out of control and starts to invade reality She is hunted by a creature of her. Read This Review More Like It On My BlogAll admissions forward I was sent this book by the author whom I consider a friend This did not and does not affect my reviewIt s been a real pleasure to watch Libby s growth as an author over the last two years Having read and greatly enjoyed her short story collection back in 2011 I was anxious to see what she would come up with for her first her full length novel I can honestly say that I was not disappointed with the end result Tough Girl is a clever heart wrenching novel with adult themes and ideas but one that will hold appeal for a wide audience If you enjoy honest and occasionally harsh views on struggles like mental illness neglect and poverty this is is your book If you enjoy novels with strong and determined female protagonists this is your book If you enjoy uniue fantasy and alternate worlds and places this is your bookThis may get a bit spoilery though I am going to try my best not to do It s just hard to review a book with such a tricky plot without letting on about a few minor details So be warned Tough Girl is the story of Reggie an eleven year old girl whom fate has not dealt the kindest of hands From being bullied at school to neglected at home Reggie s story is a sad but not had to envision struggle every day Thankfully for our heroine Reggie is also smart resourceful resilient and her own best friend Escaping into various fantasy worlds with a tough talking militaristic alter ego named Tough Girl Reggie copes with her problems in a uniue and compelling way Like I said before Reggie s mom Mona neglects her young daughter leading to Reggie s disconnect from her real life in almost slumlike building they live in The Apartments Reggie s story is a sobering one and a lot of what she sees and goes through can be tough to read Libby Heily is an author unafraid to examine the rougher side of life and it s all to the benefit of the novel For all its desperation Reggie s story comes to life with easeObviously in the grip of an unnamed and untreated mental illness Mona forgets about her daughter for days on end including the important task of feeding a growing girl A lot of Reggie s narration and thoughts center around food either getting it or eating it I find it remarkably telling that even in Reggie s longest running fantasy with TG as she is called is set on a planet named Girth Bullied hungry and alone even in Reggie s dreams food is the most important part of her day Her other struggles with classmates like Tara or even bratchild extraordinaire Jacob are painful and sadly uite real to life and carry additional weight to the storyline There s a lot going on in Tough Girl be it real or imaginary and in the end Heily manages to tie it all together with easeI did feel that the end was a bit abrupt I would ve like a little time with the denoument just to see it all play out visually I liked the ending for what it was it was fitting and believable but just a very fast turnaround from the pacing of the first 240 pages This is a shorter novel but it still packs a punch Another bonus is the price it s only 299 to join Reggie and her alter ego in the respective struggles I was and still am very impressed with Libby Heily s imagination and am excited to see how she will grow and where she will go with her talent after this

Tough Girl Read ä 108 Danger lurks everywhere in eleven year old Reggie's world from the bully next door to the unwanted attentions of a creep at school Raised by her mentally ill mother Reggie is left to fend for herself She. With Tough Girl Libby Heily has done something really amazing This book will blow your mind It is a book about a girl against the world a callous indifferent violent world that doesn t notice or care about her Eleven year old Reggie s life in the ghetto is a cat and mouse game with danger itself Her mother is absent even when she is physically there Reggie has to regularly face down bullies and other creepy characters Each day is an epic struggle just to find enough food to keep her going Almost every scene in the book is underscored by a nebulous sense of menace Reggie s existence is only about surviving and in order to do that she creates an imaginary world that she can escape to with an imaginary protagonist named Tough Girl who is capable and in control Tough Girl offers not only an entertaining escape from a bleak existence but she stands beside Reggie during some of the most difficult situations that Reggie encounters This book is incredible both in the sense that it will keep you turning pages and I could totally see this book being read in a college literature class It is richly layered with symbolism Plus Heily nails every single element in this book Heily writes the point of view of an eleven year old perfectly Reggie s innocence is a stunning contrast to the dismal violent world around her She understands that she must be tough but she does not always succeed and her vulnerability is what makes you love her so much She will even make you laugh She is honest and she has integrity and yet she understands on some level that she must do bad things in order to survive It is an untenable position for a child so young to be in and Heily writes it flawlessly The whole book I felt the tension of living in a violent world with a bunch of creeps everywhere even when Reggie didn t everyone seemed potentially evil except very few characters What I loved possibly the most about this book is Heily s absolute mastery of the art of subtlety Very very very few writers can pull off what she has done in this book blurring the edges between a young girl s imaginary life and mental illness Between her inner world and reality Even the sections of the book that deal with Tough Girl and the sci fi world that Reggie has created in her mind are compulsively readable because they deal with the same difficult themes that Reggie is struggling with in real life and the sci fi scenes are as much a commentary on poverty violence and the way society treats children as the scenes with ReggieThis book is like nothing I ve ever read before It is wildly creative and original and you ll want to read it over and over because it offers so much It is disturbing and exuisite gritty dark and beautiful poignant powerful and stunning Absolutely uniue and unapologetic It is visceral It is a perfectly orchestrated masterpiece Read this
