Too Flash

Too Flash - Melissa Lucashenko A solid 4 to 4.5. This is a quick read, but a rather terrific find - an unpretentious Australian contemporary YA featuring urban Aboriginal characters and language, _and_ no romance. The book takes a pretty unflinching look at prejudice, poverty cycles, and crime, without being so in-your-face that it's unsuitable for young readers. Definitely recommended!(Content note for a fair bit of fat talk. It's character self-talk that comes across as authentic, but could be ED trigger for some.)
