The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis is unlike any book you have ever read before. Alex Craft doesn’t need friends or anything else that doesn’t help her just get by, especially because when most people think of her they just see the girl with the murdered sister. But Alex knows how to kill. Peekay is the Preacher’s kid, it is where her nickname comes from. She is trying to be a good person while still getting away from the stereotypes of being a preacher’s kid. Jack Fisher is the star of the school, he is the star player of whatever sport is in season and is competing with Alex for valedictorian, which he needs to get a scholarship for college (which is his only way out of town). But when Peekay and Alex volunteer at the animal shelter together and grow on each other Alex is forced off of the path she is following and into the rest of the world, where she meets Jack Fisher. I loved this book, Alex is like no other character I have met before. You both love her and are afraid of her at the same time. This book also does a good job of addressing the issues of rape, it talks about it bluntly and to the point. I also loved how unpredictable this book was. I could kind of tell what was going to happen but was still surprised when it happened, I couldn’t put it down. I would recommend this book to everyone because of the way that it talks about rape, but also because of it’s unique set of characters. Although it is definitely for high school and up.
