"Paper Girl" is a YA novel that talks about a girl with social anxiety. As someone who experiences anxiety in social settings from time to time, I thought the author managed to craft a story with a character I can somewhat relate to. I enjoyed reading about the representation because the author doesn't shy away from portraying the difficulties of having and/or experiencing anxiety. I especially enjoyed the familial aspects in the story and how they helped the main character in times of difficulty.

I have to say that I wouldn't normally read books like "Paper Girl" because it can be triggering. However, I still gave this book a shot because the premise intrigued me. The fluffy romance aspect in this book didn't overshadow the main theme in the story. I like how the romance balances out the drama in the book. You can say this book is kind of a "slice of life" story where the main character both had positive and negative experiences (like in real life). This book just felt "real" in a good way.

Finally, while I did like this book, I just felt like I wanted something more from the story itself. Maybe, more from the plot. Even if this had been the case, I thought this was still such a good book. I'd recommend this title to those who are looking for books with good representation.

**Huge thanks to the publisher for providing access to this title in exchange for an honest review.
