Dreams of Significant Girls - Cristina Garcia This book was almost like stepping into a painting: bright, vivid, and realistic.Lasting.--This was less like a book and more of a glimpse into a looking glass showing us a reflection of the story of three completely different girls. Through varying situations in their lives they ended up at a posh Swiss boarding school, each wondering just what they could possibly get out of the situation. But more than getting something out of it, their experience changes their worldview and themselves.To be honest, I finished this book about a month ago and have been struggling with the review ever since. Not because I didn't like it, because I loved it, but more so because this is really something has to be experienced along with the rest of the girls. Frankly, I don't think this is a book that everyone will be able to worm their way into, but if you do, you will love it. It's real and unapologetic and left me curious - I wanted to know even more about the girls and read more of their correspondence. I wanted to cook with Viven, chat with Shirin, and attend a show with Ingrid.If anyone has any questions about Dreams of Significant Girls I'll do my best to answer them. I apologise for the review that's not quite a review, but, I do urge you to read it if you're a fan of realistic contemporary YA.
