My Last Innocent Year – by Daisy Florin
This one rang true for me. It’s touching, insightful, and clear-headed about what being 22 feels like and creates an authentic protagonist who is trying to find her way into adulthood. I’m a sucker for a story of a struggling writer, a girl who is trying to figure out how to relate to men, a student grappling with friendships (how they come, how they go) and a daughter coming to terms with her family story. This author obviously spent time diving deep into the human psyche – all the characters are well thought out and unique. Bravo!
