REVIEW: Becoming Betty by Eleanor Wood

Becoming Betty is Lizzie’s story as she joins her new best friend Viv’s band and discovers the kind of person she really is.

I loved Becoming Betty. Lizzie is a wonderful narrator, and her story of self-discovery, sometimes through heartbreaking means, is one that will resonate with many. Not all the characters are likeable (there are lots of words I could use for Viv), but their roles in Lizzie’s story are vital. The tone of Becoming Betty, particularly in Lizzie’s relationship with Viv, reminded me of Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard, and I'm sure many readers will love it.

Stars: ★★★★★

I was sent a copy of Becoming Betty by Pan Macmillan in exchange for an honest review.
