My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Alicia Avery is team Venoms Captain, who is born into a very powerful political family. This means she must act the part of a well behaved young woman, all prim and proper and play hockey too.
If you know hockey, you know it involves a strong person, and a lot of exercise and work out. Being team captain, it also will involve being in charge and scheduling and making sure things flow properly, and keeping the team in high spirits, and wanting to win. Hockey means you have goals, literally and physically. Along with that, comes pain and agony.
Alicia’s parents dictate to her, and Alicia stays focused with her determination. Her determination is met with a radical new hair cut. Her parents are anything but pleased.
Then an unplanned acquaintance catches the eye of Alicia. A street performer, who is raising his daughter alone, catches her eye, and she can’t help but find him interesting. His name is Dale Christie, and his daughter is Wren Song.
This man is very wrong for Alicia, per everyone who judges her thinks. But Alicia is strong willed, and can’t stop thinking about him, and her thoughts seem to be focused on him no matter what she does.
Everyone thinks that you should pick the perfect mate, or person out by their bank account, by their promise of their future, and things like this. But Alicia cannot will herself to do that.
The heart wants what the heart wants.
Hockey has always been the only thing Alicia has ever wanted and needed. Nothing more, nothing less. Until now. Now her thoughts are distracted, and she cannot focus.
Alicia’s whole life is turned upside down, and she must make a decision….
I give this book five stars, because I couldn’t put it down. I was in love with the complete turnaround Alicia went through. I have been there, I have tried to convince my parents that what they wanted for me was not the right thing, but they didn’t care. Everyone around always thinks they know what is best for you. They don’t realize they just don’t understand your needs. This book will help you see, what it is that the heart wants. “Twirly Girl” is a remarkable book that is about the love and understand of a person’s own feelings, and listening to their self first, and no one else. You will enjoy this, if you love remarkable eye opening and true romances.
