Thirteen-year-old Olive Abernathy hates everything around her. She seems sure that being an Abernathy is a curse due to how everyone in Lafayette, Louisiana, shunned her and her family. Above all, she believes that her mother hates her.

Henry is Olive's only friend, but his mother strongly disapproves of their friendship. Olive just couldn't imagine life in Lafayette without him. However, the news of her beloved grandfather's death was the final straw. Hence, she decides to disown her 'cursed' family and start a new life anywhere far from them. She goes over to Henry's house to say goodbye, but he packs his suitcase and leaves town with her. Why did the folks in Lafayette despise Olive and her family so much? How are these two going to survive on their own? You have to read this intriguing title to find out.

I picked up All The Good Little Girls Keep Quiet by K. Kibbee without knowing what to expect. But after reading this book, I was blown away. I was overwhelmed by emotions so much that I struggled to hold back my tears. I feared for the safety of Olive and Henry. Ms. Kibbee has taken me on a fascinating ride that I won't forget anytime soon.

I enjoyed the author's writing style. She uses the first-person point of view, which is from Olive's perspective, to tell the entire story. She portrays how a teenager would narrate a story perfectly. It took me a little time to get used to the dialect used, but as soon as I did, the story flowed seamlessly. More so, the descriptions in this book are so vivid that it felt like I was watching everything play out on a big screen. Good job, Ms. Kibbee!

Nevertheless, the characterization is excellent. The characters are so relatable, and I love how the author didn't waste time describing characters that didn't add much to the plot. While Olive is my favorite character, I fell in love with Henry. Who wouldn't love to have a friend that loyal?

What I liked the most about this book is the strong message it promotes. It encourages women and minors not to be silent when someone sexually abuses them. Through this title, the author intends to inspire them to tell the truth irrespective of the abuser's status in society. I support this message and cannot sufficiently commend the author for it.

All through the 12 chapters in the book, the author's rich sense of humor is evident. I couldn't help laughing out loud at Olive's thoughts and descriptions. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and didn't dislike anything about it. Therefore, I am glad to rate All The Good Little Girls Keep Quiet 4 out of 4 stars. It is professionally edited and without typos. I am not recommending this book to kids due to a few profanities in it. Otherwise, anyone who loves fiction stories will find this title very fascinating.

Fantastic review as usual Vic Chimezie.
I wonder what it would be like to have a friend as loyal as Henry. The book doesn't seem to be too long either. It's a classic example of a good book.
Have a nice day!

Interesting storyline, and a good review to back it up.
Based on your recommendation in this review, I wonder what categories 'kids' apply to. Since this book is about a teenager, and written from a teenager's perspective, I assume it would be best for teenagers (who comfortably fall under the 'kids' category). So, can you say this book is for teenagers?
Live and let live, baby!

This book can be enjoyed by Young Adults and Adults in general. While the parents one thirteen-year-old might find it suitable, another might disagree due to a few profanities in the book. I hope that was helpful? I appreciate you for finding time to read and comment. 😍

Yeah. Thank you for your response, it clarified my confusion. I think l'll let the teenager read it (with guidance). They'll eventually come across all that😩.
And I enjoy reading your reviews😉.
