summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Jillian Larkin35 4 starsLet s just start out with hello my name is Jamie and I am obsessed with the 1920 s and flappers and I will read anything related to said obsessions Seriously I once was a flapper for Halloween I just love the flapper fashion the literature that arose from the 1920 s the jazz the transition into the modern culture the progress in woman s suffrage movement the mobsters the speakeasysit is all just so exciting to me I just love reading and watching movies set Pharmacological Aspects of Nursing Care during this time Anyways once I saw this book I just KNEW I had to pick it up Vixen has it all romance glitz and glamour catty girls mobsters secrets and suspense and is set in one of those most interesting and alluring time periods in America It alsoid eal with substantial issues like friendship loyalty the suppression of women racial and societal expectations etc In some ways this reminded me of Gossip Girl set in the 1920 s with the high society secrets backstabbing and shocking public revelations And I totally was picturing the episode of Gossip Girl where Chuck opened the speakeasy and they were all in flapper like costumes Larkin nailed it At some points I felt like if I closed my eyes I be transported into some ark speakeasy filled with smoke and booze ancing with glamorous flappers and gangsters with pin striped suits I could hear that jazz music playing and feel the excitement of being rebellious and sexy in my fringed American Constitutional Law dress headband and bobbed hair cutThere were some interesting characters in this book Clara was my favorite she was smartespite some obvious bad choices in her past and I thought she was interesting and was the shining star for me I Game Development with ActionScript did appreciate some of theimensions we started to see in Gloria and I started to really appreciate her At some times I felt like Gloria and Lorraine were a bit cliched and predictable but the storyline and the setting made up for what they were sometimes lacking for me The storyline was well crafted and I kept wanting to find out what happenedMy one gripe with this book is that I felt like the author went a little bit overboard with the lingo of the time period and she The Questory of Root Karbunkulus didn t need to because she really had me convinced of the time period with how she built their world All these phrases and slang wereropped into the story and it felt like a like a kid who learned a set of vocabulary words and tried to keep impressing people with packing them into sentences It just Film Production Technique didn t flow all the time and seemed awkward The overuse of all the lingo wasistracting and it was really unfortunate because she already set such an authentic scene for the readerI will note that this might be inappropriate for some younger readers lots of booze smoking and it s pretty sexy I thought it was tasteful but Public Administration in Europe definitely a little mature than some YA lit geared for younger readers My Final Thought Vixen is a sexy and intriguingebut that captures the excitement of an era and an underground lifestyle that is full of glamour grit and David Buschs Mastering Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Photography danger It is edgy and provocative without being trashy It is a promising primer for older teens and YA lovers of all ages into a period of time that should be explored in YA historical fiction I cannot WAIT for the second book to come out as the ending was uite exciting and ends with uite the bangliterally In the meantime I ll be trying Bright Young Things which is also set in the 20 s and seems to be about flappers If I had a guilty pleasure book this would be itSeriously it has everything I adore 20s glamour and flappers jazz music ridiculous YArama a pretty cover and a fast moving plotI ended up picking this book on clearance years ago Like most books I own it got lost somewhere in my house and I forgot it existed Then one 안나라수마나라 4 (Annarasumanara dayuring my epic cleaning sprees to Presidential Leadership deal with my epic boredom I found it Since I m trying to give myself a well rounded read shelf for 2020 Iecided to pick it up Plus who oesn t want some goofy YA well rounded read shelf for 2020 I ecided to pick

Flappers series Charlie s Angels style the best I was able to come up with anywayMeet our Angels Vixens Gloria She s the one who has it all the name riches looks clothes a handsome fiancee everything comes easily to her and everybody seemingly loves her But this poor little rich girl isn t so happy after all and so she begins to rebel Clara Burned by her former flapper lifestyle she s now trying to start over as Country Clara without her sordid past coming to light So has she turned into a goody two shoes or is it just part of a grander scheme Only time will tell Lorraine Jealous of best friend Gloria she s esperate to step out of Glo s shadow to become the center of attention as an individualBefore getting to my review there are a few uestions that should be addressedIs this great literature NoWill this book change your life NoWill you learn anything from reading this book No Well maybe some twenties slangIs this book accurate to the period No there are some liberties but it s good enough as wallpaper to the players and scenesIs this book entertaining beyond belief A resounding YESVIXEN is very easy to read and captured my attention from the first page and while it may not be the best book ever I had a lot of fun reading it While there s nothing glaringly obvious anachronism wise I Contemporary Precalculus did uestion some word choices phrases and actions but overall they were easy to overlook and I likened it to watching A Knight s Tale starring Heath Ledger Written in third person each chapter focuses on one the three girls point of view starting with Gloria and continuing with Clara and then Lorraine throughout the book until the endAs for the characters Clara named after Ms Clara Bow wasefinitely my favorite to read about she s recovering from the aftereffects of her life in New York City which includes a boy of course and is trying her best to leave the past behind and move on with her life Her story had a lot to offer and she felt like a real person who had made mistakes and was now left ealing with the repercussions Lorraine was a trainwreck you can t take your eyes off of and while I can t say I liked her I felt sorry for her She tries way too hard to stand out and ends up making herself look pathetic if she keeps it up she ll turn into a very ugly person whom everyone hates Forget Gloria Lorraine is the real poor little rich girl of the book She s in the middle of making all the wrong ecisions and we re along for the journey which made her multidimensional and interesting to read about as well Gloria was my least favorite mainly because I That One Night don t think the author knew uite how to write her At one moment Gloria seemed like a good girl rebelling but then there would be moments where she was a real bitch and those two aspects justidn t gel into a cohesive whole Now if she was seemingly sweet on the outside and really was a conniving bitch underneath then I be on board or at least would get it But she wasn t that type of bitch and she wasn t Alexis Carrington bitchy or insert less ated reference here either How she was written made her look like Sybil and Timespace and International Migration didn t render me to sympathize with her at all Itidn t help that I felt she was too close to a Mary Sue for my liking I Pricing Nature don t like perfect or near perfect characters they re boring and so was she What was her motivation for anything such as singing Was that always aream or The Girl from the Garden did it just now come about Is her recent behavior only happening because she s unhappy Sorry but there s just not enough there to make me care about this character Gloria needed to be fleshed out to make her feel like a real human with real thoughts in her head and real feelings and not a cliched cardboard cut outThe love aspects of the novel were fairly glossed over mainly Gloria and Jerome s story and felt like teenage hormones than actual real love Ion t know you but you re hot and I love youNothing will keep us apartWe ll be together foreverWhich is too bad because I like the idea of an interracial romance taking place in the 1920 s it of an interracial romance taking place in the 1920 s it have been fantastic but instead was tepid and generally unromantic It idn t help that half the uo was boring old Gloria and the other half never Read This! Intro Students Book developed beyond the fact that he s a black musician who s forbidden to herue to the color of his skin I wished for impact and still hope for that in the next installment of the series Clara s budding relationship with Marcus was far realistic because they actually had conversations gasp and was well paced The relationships between the girls were touch and go sometimes they felt authentic then at other times interactions appeared too advanced to where the relationship had last left off it was like there were scenes edited out in chunks The same could be said of the English Unlimited Level 2 Coursebook Jubail Edition developing romance between Gloria and JeromeSo a few things bothered me in the book such as the issue I had with every girl who wasn t one of the main trio being cattilyescribed ie eyes are close together that color makes her look sallow etc Can we get over Two Worlds Level 4 Intermediate doing that already That s not encouraging good behavior A little positivity would be a refreshing change Another thing that annoyed me was at one point the crap hit the fan and minor spoiler view spoilerGloria s career as a torch singer which she s naturally perfect at of course came out into the open So whooes she immediately blame Her best friend Lorraine of course whom she slaps And who to this point Gloria had no provocation to even think it Primary Reading Box d be her who had spilled the beans Lorraine had notone anything to eserve Gloria s wrath or Really liked this one I needed a book that was going to show me some action and not just talk about it This book fit the bill I ve been reading some heavier content lately and was craving something fun and fast moving Thank you Vixen for giving me back some of the funReasons this book shined 1 Many flawed characters with secrets to hide2 Taboo interracial relationship for the time period that
