4.5 stars: Review of A DAFFODIL FOR ANGIE by Connie Lacy

by Melody Delgado       Reviewer Rating: 4.5 Stars      

Strong writing and story-telling by a capable author who transports the reader back to the 1960s with depth, clarity and humor. Angie is a witty, likeable protagonist who has a heart for others and a mind of her own. She is a feminist being raised by a mother who has a 1950s view of women, which frustrates Angie. While the author may have tried to tackle too many social issues in one book, overall, this is a well-told, engaging story with a strong sense of time and place. Fans of Historical Young Adult novels or novels dealing with social issues, will enjoy this book.
