Art Girls Are Easy by Julie Klausner

Art Girls Are EasyFifteen-year-old Indigo Hamlisch is an art prodigy looking forward to her last summer at the Silver Springs Academy for Fine and Performing Arts for Girls. But her BFF Lucy Serrano is a C.I.T. this year, and that means she doesn't have to hang out with Indigo and the other campers anymore: she can mingle with the counselors -- including Indigo's scandalous and unrequited crush, paint-splattered art instructor Nick Estep. But it's not like anything is going to happen between Lucy and Nick... right?
As Indy becomes more and more paranoid about what's going on between her best friend and her favorite counselor, Indy's life -- and her work -- spin hilariously out of control. Funny and bold, Art Girls Are Easy is a comedy of errors filtered through the wry, satirical eyes of a girl who's been there, done that, and is just looking for a little inspiration.

Oh, this book. Art Girls Are Easy was one of those books that I come out of thinking it is so good, and then after awhile the actual story starts to sink in- and I notice some of the not so good parts. While I was reading it, I really liked Art Girls Are Easy. It took awhile for me to get into it, but ultimately I enjoyed the story and the writing.

However, my biggest problem with Art Girls Are Easy appears when talking about the characters. Though I found Indigo to be quite spunky, which I like, she also appeared to be whiny and really immature. She was resilient when it came to boys, however, when it came to art- something she’s been passionate about her whole life, she was willing to give it up over basically nothing. Indigo came off moodier than what would have been realistic, and her personality seemed a bit artificial. Despite these things, I did admire her spunk and individuality.

I previously mentioned that I enjoyed the story and writing in Art Girls Are Easy. Despite my distain for Indigo, I genuinely did enjoy the story. I liked that it had to do with art- specifically an art related summer camp. Indigo’s struggle to maintain motivated while producing her art work was something that people can relate to, even if they aren’t artists. The writing in Art Girls Are Easy was good in a catchy way. The characters weren’t very realistic or developed, but the writing kept me hooked.

Though I wouldn’t necessarily recommend Art Girls Are Easy to everybody, I do think that it will appeal to some people.

Just read the Temple Wars Novel on Ganesha! The story is well told through a parallel protagonist Tarun who helps Ganesha retrieve his objects from the spirit world. It's a page-turner that will have you wanting more. You guys should check it out! Temple Wars
