Initially I was skeptical about reading this novel as I knew it would contradict Atticus Finch 's character. However, I did enjoy this book! I thought the novel presented a good message about following your own conscience rather than conforming to the opinions of others. My favorite part of the novel was after Jean Louise and Atticus’s big fight where Atticus tells Jean Louise “You may be sorry, but I’m proud of you,” (Lee 277) and after processing all of this information Jean Louise tells Atticus “I think I love you very much.” (Lee 278) I loved this part in particular because it described how in life we can still love the people we disagree with. This novel is definitely a more challenging read than To Kill A Mockingbird as it requires lots of analyzation to fully understand the text.

What I like about it is the dialogue and how descriptive the author is with his words. The thinking is complex and really pulled me into the story. For example when Mr. Wiggins explained what a hero was and talked about God to Jefferson. What I dislike about this book is the lack of impact. Personally, I like a story that can keep me on my toes and make twists and turns that surprise me.

Since they got back to being friends playing the sport they both love it gives the audience a happy and content feeling so they can put the book down and be okay that it is over. Both of these endings are completely different, but they both leave the audience content with the ending, making it so a sequel is not requested to help tie up loose
The author does a good job of creating a plot where a background storyline of what is happening is present to further develop the story. Overall however, the story comes across as positive from the 3rd person view of a narrator, and the backstory doesn’t overshadow the main events which keeps the reader wanting to read more. The author, Josephina Niggli, may have developed this story because of her personal connections to the feelings or events in the story. A long ago party that left her wondering if she should pursue a so-called “Bad Boy” may have caused her to transform these personal memories into a more entertaining fashion. The character Sarita could easily be a representation of Josephina herself meaning that this story would be one built on facts and emotions that should have came easy for the author to transform into a compelling tale of mysterious and romantic relations with an unknown man.

Secondly, the book was up my alley because of its genre.
Often times throughout the book it can be quite challenging to understand how these characters all tie together in the book but this only adds to the books interest and makes it a worthwhile read for anyone studying the subject of 9/11. The novel written by Colum McCann was written in memoir
This will allow us readers to connect to the story more. Overall I think the characters are a perfect fit to the story. After reading “So I Aint no Good Girl”, I was very astonished by the characters; they were unique and added a realistic feel to the story. The narrator’s actions do leave me questioning the plot though. Furthermore I would love it if the author could have given us more information about the narrator; however the story was a
