Paulina & Fran by Rachel B Glaser | 1 Minute Reviews

I need to call Rachel B. Glaser right now and ask her so many things about this joyous book.

9781783781591

Paulina is flighty, brilliant, cruel; Fran is lovely, curled, gentle. When Paulina decides to befriend Fran on a trip to Norway with their art school, so begins a friendship fill with honesty, romantic love and brutality.

Paulina has possibly the sharpest tongue of any character and I regularly found myself shrieking at her barbed comments. Glaser’s cutting humour leaves no corner of art school and young adult life untouched.

My heart was all for them all the way through. The toxic friendship reminded me so so much of Lina and Elena from Ferrante’s Neapolitan Saga.

Paulina and Fran is a brutal look at female friendship and obsessive romance in an art school setting. A must read.
