Long time geek, fangirl, mother, and reader. I've got a lot to say, you might not like it all, but it will be honest and hopefully helpful.
I thought about keeping count of all the female characters who are evil, shallow, bitchy, petty, weak, idiots, or some other degrading stereotype of women, but just thinking about it was depressing me.
It'd be nice to have just one woman other than Ree who isn't a two dimensional caricature of one of "those girls." As it is, I think Ree is suffering from a serious case of the Better Girl trope. :(
