The Geography Of Girlhood: a novel

Kirsten Smith

from the book...

Penny Morrow is ready to escape the pocket of home, ready to be in love, ready to find her way in the world. Navigating the choppy waters of her life, she confronts the complicated truths of her not-quite-normal family, the highs and lows of high school, her lost mother and her lost best friend, and one alluring bad boy who just might be more adventure than she bargained for.


Written in raw, captivating verse, Kirsten Smith's powerful debut novel explores the heartbreak and humor of what it really means to be a girl stumbling toward adulthood without a map.
