Dominy's heroine, Ellie Taylor, has been arguing all her life. A born debater, confident, funny, and determined, Ellie signs up for Christian Society Speech and Performing Arts summer camp so that she can win a full scholarship to the best private school in her area, the school with one of the best debate societies in the state. Ellie realizes that winning the scholarship also means pretending to be Christian and repudiating her Jewish heritage and identity, this raises all sorts of problems. Tough for Ellie, but great for us readers because it also gives Dominy the chance to exploit her skill at comedy.
Dominy has a gift for humor. Everything that might go wrong does - and in such a way that I kept chuckling and laughing out loud. Likable characters, witty dialogue, and situational comedy - OyMG is such a fun read!
