I finished 'Durable Goods' last night and am re reading it today marking the original lines She has a simple but powerful writing style and uses diamond sharp similesThere's no complex 'plot' as such in this book The story is about the thoughts and feelings of a 12 year old girl Katie struggling to get along with her 18 year old sister and their volatile and aggressive Army Dad who does not permit his daughters to cry Katie is also still trying to come to terms with her mother's deathFor all that it's a heart warming up beat book told in present tense first person point of view There is much gentle humour as Katie longs for the onset of puberty while her best friend Cherylanne is already 14 and expert in the ways of women the world and glossy magazine 'chic'It made me smile a lot but also made me feel like crying at one pointWe've all experienced having to move leave close friends behind at some time in life and reading this unlocked some deep stuff It touches chords even in a manThe mini interview info at the back of the book says she wrote a third book 'True to Form' as one of her readers just had to know what happened to Katie after 'Joy School' so I'm looking forward to reading the other two nowFor anyone thinking of starting writing she has also written 'Escaping into the open the art of writing' which provides much encouragement
