    "The main character of this book is 19 years old, so this should immediately be appealing to girls of the same general age range. The story sounds like it would be a good fantasy love story that could be relatable to a young woman who is exploring her sexuality and looking for something that tells a similar story."

    "The protagonist in this novel has gone through hell and back as a child, but has come back stronger than can be imagined. I definitely recommend this book for any young woman who struggled as a child and is looking for inspiration to tackle adulthood. "

    "As my sister was leaving for college asked if I knew of any books that are good for 18 year olds. I passed on my copy of Animal Farm as I really felt like it would do a lot for her perspective. She loves animals so I thought this story would touch her deeply."

    "I was trying to find one of the best books for 18 year old girls for my niece, and I came across 1984 by George Orwell. This classic novel may not be for every young woman, but it certainly has the mystique and pizazz to keep most young readers enthralled with a terrifying prophecy about a future government takeover. I recommend this to any young woman or young person in general."

    "This is an okay book. A lot of really obvious knowledge and more geared for a parent to teach their teen with, but I just didn't love it. The premise was nice, but a lot of the tips seemed generic and not that thoroughly vetted and helpful. There are better books to help young adults navigate."

    "600 Hours of Edward is a really poor fit with this category. I wouldn't at all put this as a great book for 18 year old girls, and I'd struggle calling it anything near the best in any category, because while interesting and heartwarming, I don't find it to be anything approaching good."
