Girl With A Future by Parker Ames is the story of a young woman's search for herself and her place in the world. She thinks she might have a destiny, but what that is, she doesn't know yet. We get to tag with her as she goes through different life experiences and we see how she deals with the challenges life throws her way.
Girl With A Future is a fast-paced read, and that's thanks to the author's formidable writing skills. It's hard to believe this is a debut novel. The pacing is perfect and the writing taut and sharp. There's nothing boring about this book. You will turn the pages just as fast to keep up with her and not get left behind. Angie, the lead character, is a strong woman with high self-assessment skills. Yes, she made a lot of mistakes, as we all do, but there's nothing whiny or pathetic about her, and I liked that. You are not required to pity her as you read, but instead, you'll cheer her on until the last page.
Parker Ames has written a novel that is profound. At first glance, it might not seem that way but this book will surprise you. As she relates Angie's story, you might find yourself relating to her doubts and wonderings. The author might name emotions you have not acknowledged before, if you're brave enough to admit it. It's powerful in its honesty and simplicity and I admire the author's perceptions and insights. A worthwhile read. Recommended for new adults and adults alike.
