I was walking through the park the other day when I noticed the woman in front of me doing something odd. She was walking her dog, the leash attached to her waist, and she raised her arms in a T-shape and kept them at shoulder level for the rest of the walk. Living smack dab in the middle of a major city can thicken your skin and make you pretty oblivious to the weird shit people do. But for some reason, this arms-up lady made me pause. The Girls by Emma Cline is in no way related to that story. It’s just what I’m reading this week. A lot of people told me this book didn’t live up to the hype for them, but I have to say that I’m really liking it so far so I’m glad I didn’t listen to them.
