Book Review: The Bad Girl by L Donsky-Levine

This debut novella is set in New York, 1971, Reilly is a young girl fending for herself, she rescues animals but is very much as risk. Things get much darker and worse for Reilly after she is ejected from her home. She has a glimmer of hope in a man she meets at an animal shelter, but can things really be different for her?

This rather unusual novella is an engaging, if not difficult read. You cannot help but root for Reilly when so much has obviously damaged her in her short life. I was moved and left bereft in the end, but I’m glad I read this sensitive and emotional novella.
