- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 September #2
When Flora meets Elijah, her fashion-forward and feminist photography tutor, she is inspired to leave her Manhattan prep school for Quare, an alternative Quaker boarding school that Elijah attended in upstate New York. When Elijah doesn't return to Quare as planned, Flora is on her own and in culture shock in an eco-obsessed community that fosters open-mindedness and creativity. What seems like a hopeless decision at first turns out to be exactly what Flora needs to produce her best work yet: a hybrid performance art piece and stage play that garners national attention. As she lets down her walls and embraces the Quare community, Flora gains meaningful friendships and self-acceptance. The non-narrative format consisting of letters, e-mails, and journal entries is far from unique in contemporary YA, but what could have been an unremarkable love story is instead an introspective, feminist, nuanced story that is difficult to place in any one box. This standout debut is as empowering for readers as it is for its protagonist. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
Jenny Fran Davis was born in Manhattan and spent four months avoiding (but later embracing) millet mountains in a peace- and justice-focused Quaker community in northern California. Fond of big dogs, doo-wop, and Judy Blume, she attended the Chapin School and is currently an undergraduate at Wesleyan University. Everything Must Go is her debut novel.
