The protagonist has a courageous spirit despite personal obstacles stemmming from birth, socioeconomics, and sexual orientation. Empowering book for females.

This book is what I like to call "extreme fiction", meaning it's highly unrealistic in its story and characters. I usually stop reading this type of fiction once I realize what it is but this novel was amusing and entertaining. I actually laughed out loud a few times. However, I have a few criticisms. The dialogue between characters is not the way anyone anywhere talks to each other, regardless of age or time period. The narrator contradicts her own statements by her actions and seems to lack emotion in situations that would be crushing. The ease with which the narrator meets all these lesbians seems to be way too far-fetched for the time period (50s/60s). Lastly, I didn't really have a that great a sense of Molly's personality, she seemed sweet at times and downright mean at others. She was supposedly a genius but didn't make genius choices. But overall, enjoyable book.
