‘Unbearable Girl’ is an enduring story that goes beyond teenager angst and into abuse, same-sex relationships and teen pregnancy. I found Dianne to be an exceptionally strong heroine against harsh odds. How she was able to maintain a ‘perfect’ exterior while enduring so much pain was both moving and inspirational. With her friendship to Laurie, who is in every way her opposite at first, she is able to cope and break free of the unfair oppression in her life and experience the true meaning of what it is to be loved and have a family.
This is a book that will keep you emotionally hooked from beginning to end, and it is one to enjoy reading again in the future.
