Feddie Girl Book Review by Susan Cook

Posted by Susan Cook to the blog site "Stay At Home Mom"

The book is about a thirteen year old girl named Carlotta, who because of some bad behavior in school, is sent to a boarding school. Her parents send her to a Nigerian Federal School.

The author writes with such clarity that you feel as if you are there with them, and you know how Carlotta feels as a teen trying to adapt to living in a boarding school in another country.

When her mother drops her off at the boarding school she tells her that if she does well after one year she can return home. Carlotta realized very early into her boarding school stay that when one mistake is made the consequences can last for a long time. She chose to work hard so she could go back home at the end of the year.

Boarding school life is something that takes some getting used to Carlotta soon finds. Carlotta had always depended on her mother for everything. She had never bothered to do her own laundry, do dishes, tidy her own room. She had left everything to her parents. She soon finds out that life is different in a boarding school.

As if the school rules, regulations, rising bells and other ways of dormitory life weren't enough, author Nona David takes Carlotta's story a step further. You find out through a sub-plot another reason her parents sent her to the boarding school.

I would recommend "Feddie Girl" from teens to adults, who like good fiction. This is a very exciting book, and was very interesting.
