Book Review: "10 Steps to Girlfriend Status"

10 Steps to Girlfriend Status
by Cynthia T. Toney
Write Integrity Press, 2015

In 10 Steps to Girlfriend Status, Cynthia Toney continues the first-person narrative of Wendy Robichaud that she began in 8 Notes to aNobody. Like the first book in the Bird Face Series, the sequel is issue-driven fiction for teens. This time around, Wendy is struggling to cope with a blended family after her mom remarries. Wendy’s best friend Alice is now her sister and she has gained a six-year old brother. The whole family needs to adjust. In addition, her former next-door neighbor and adopted grandmother, Mrs. V., is suffering from Alzheimer’s. And, to make life more emotionally complex, Wendy is starting to date.

Thrown into the fictional mix is a mystery Wendy is trying to solve about a great uncle that disappeared many years earlier after falling in love with a girl his family didn’t approve of. 

10 Steps to Girlfriend Status is an enjoyable read. Those who read the first two books in the Bird Face series will be eager for Toney to pen more stories about Wendy and her life.
