"Effie At The Wedding" by Tracy Marchini is a very sweet short story of a teenage girl named Effie who is at her older sister, Ophelia's wedding. Effie has all the common teenage "angst" you find in todays young people. She lives with her family who appear to be consumed with her weight and seem over-critical of her in other ways as well. Effie fears that her sisters' wedding will be the end of her special sister/best friend relationship with Ophelia. Effie is witty and charming, sensitive, and intuitive. I love when she locks herself in the bathroom to avoid the family. Her list-making reminds me of myself as a teenager.
I would definitely recommend this short and sweet story to any girls who would like a light read that will make you smile.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher. I was not required to give a positive review and all my opinions are my own.
