I’m sure many people (girls, women) will be able to recognize themselves in the main characters of Cecil Castellucci’s Boy Proof. Victoria ‘Egg’ Jurgen is weird, nerdy, self-conscious, self-absorbed, creative, different, obnoxious,… In short, she’s pretty much your typical angsty 16-year-old on the road to self-discovery. Castellucci, though, has a fun and easy style, fitting for the Hollywood context of this novel, so the cat never felt like she was reading just another teen novel. The fast-paced writing in itself also makes that you’ll be through this book faster than you can say “Terminal Earth”. On the road to self-acceptance, Castellucci’s Boy Proof might be a necessary book of insight for many teenage girls.
