Trinkets - Kirsten Smith Trinkets centers around three girls from different social circles who are all assigned to attend a program for shoplifters. Sounds like The Breakfast Club, right? Yes, and that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned. Trinkets is narrated by all three girls in alternating points of view. I was initially alarmed to see that Elodie's chapters are in verse. While I love poetry, YA books in verse are really not my thing. At all. Luckily for me, Moe's and Tabitha's POVs are in regular prose. While most of the book's events will not seem surprising to anyone who watches John Hughes movies -- the girls discover that they actually have a lot in common, fix their love lives and even seem to conquer their kleptomania -- this book was a fun, feel-good read with some laugh-out-loud moments and charming romantic subplots. If you're in the mood for a fun contemporary, this one should definitely make you smile.Read more reviews @ my blog, YA Romantics
