Review by: MALWINA PEACOCK on Jan. 09, 2013 :
"Henrietta's Castle" is an engrossing read - smooth reading of some difficult subjects. In particular, I liked the juxtaposition of the two main characters - Juliette and her best friend. The book is an in-depth and personal exploration of that tumultous period in a girl's life - adolescence. The author has a good eye for detail, as there were quite a few times when I thought to myself "Oh geesh, that's right, that's what high school used to be like!". The book deals with some very topical issues for teenagers and young adults - eating disorders, trying to fit in with your group, rock solid friendships disintegrating as people change. It will be a confronting read at times, especially for those readers who may have had an eating disorder. But it is well worth the read and, in the end, I found it to be immensely uplifting. For those times when you feel everything is trying to pull you down, for those times when it all seems too hard, that the obstacles are too great ... Henrietta's Castle shows that there is a sunrise.
