Tough Girl by Libby Heily

Tough Girl was the dark tale of Reggie, a girl with a lot of everyday troubles which she decided to solve with the help of her imagination. Reggie's life is far from perfect, she gets bullied and her mother is lost inside her own world. So Reggie escapes in her fantasy world more and more and finally it gets really hard to understand what's real and what's not, even for the reader.

This book introduces us to the dangerous, sad and lonely world that Reggie has to live in. Definitely not a world for an eleven year old, and that's why while reading the story I would forget that she was so young. She had to grew faster in order to take care of herself. So, this is not a book for kids. Just like the blurb says there are adult themes(like attempting rape) and adult language.

The writing was great and even though the story had a fast and kind of forced ending it was a great book to get lost into. But I am still glad it was short, cause it made me feel sad and a bit depressed. Through out the whole book I just wanted to hug Reggie and never let go.
