Girl Reading uses seven different pieces of artwork (from a 14th century altar piece all the way to a modern Flickr photograph), to give a voice and a story to each "reading girl." At first glance, this novel appears to be a series of short stories. However, several elements weave throughout each tale, tying them all together into one cohesive novel. Katie Ward's debut novel is a unique and thought-provoking read.
