Chicken Girl

Vancouver Sun - - BOOKS - Heather Smith Pen­guin Ran­dom House

Poppy, a 16-year-old girl with a pen­chant for vin­tage cloth­ing and an op­ti­mistic out­look on life, has a change of heart — and wardrobe — af­ter she’s trolled by on­line bul­lies. Life gets worse be­fore it gets bet­ter, largely thanks to a job at a lo­cal restau­rant that re­quires her to dress in a chicken suit and wave a sign at passersby. But with sup­port from her twin brother, who has his own trou­bles af­ter he comes out as gay, and a few tough lessons learned from a di­verse group of new friends, she dis­cov­ers she can take a few hard knocks with­out crack­ing.
