"A modern Jane Eyre.”
“A stunning novel to be read and re-read."
“What Catcher in the Rye did for high school youths troubled by the onslaught of adulthood, H.T. Hamann's Anthropology of an American Girl does for college women struggling to reconcile their dreams with reality."

What Catcher in the Rye did for high school youths troubled by the onslaught of adulthood, H.T. Hamann's Anthropology of an American Girl does for college women struggling to reconcile their dreams with reality. The novel is clearly a history heavily influenced by Hamann's own path, but it is the emotions, the reactions of Eveline to her experiences, that readers will recognize. It's the story of your mother, sister, aunt, or best friend, of you. American Girl is poignantly devastating because it is your life. Hamann's novel will be a modern Jane Eyre—a stunning novel to be read and reread.
