      Giraffe People by Jill Malone is a young adult book that is so beautiful, I often found myself putting it down to savour the writing style. It so perfectly captures the experience of growing up as a teenaged girl in the 90s that I sometimes felt like I was pulled back into my adolescence.Full review: thelesbianreview/giraf

      Jill Malone's "Giraffe People" paints a vivid and unique picture of the classic coming of age story. Set in the life of a military preacher's kid, Malone manages to create a soul in her character of Cole who is both so genuinely a teenager in her speech and actions, but also feels like a sage in her realizations. Readers feel a connection to Cole as she deals with relationships, the pressures of school, struggles with religion, family relations and becoming her own unique person. Malone also doe [...]

      How did I find this jewel of a book? This was wonderful. I'm amazed at how she captured the 7000 things every high achieving kid is weighing at any given time. This book is reverent of its subject matter, which is a young woman becoming aware and becoming human. This book does not make fun, and doesn't shy from a very rarely well-told truth. Astoundingly high quality.

      "Luminescent" writing. Nicole Peters would like that word. Booklist also called this novel "finely tuned, daring, and perceptive." Cole Peters defines words using gut feelings instead of a dictionary. Fifteen, trapped in a family whose life is punctuated by dashes from one military base to another, further enclosed by being a chaplain's kid, a subset within a subset, she calls it, making her feel doubly weird. No just a military brat, but a preacher's kid, those two facts encircle her life like [...]

      Don’t expect a plot summary of Giraffe People because the novel is more of a character study of a 15-year-old girl the year before she starts high school. Cole (Nicole) is a military brat on the verge of becoming a young woman. She lives on the Fort Monmouth (New Jersey) army base with her military chaplain dad, her mother, and two brothers. She calls her family “giraffe people” because dad and the kids are long-legged with narrow chests and flat feet. Cole is about as normal as she can po [...]

      I found out about Jill Malone's Giraffe People from Gay City Health in Seattle, which has a Meet the Author series. Malone lives in Spokane and drove out to the city to regale an intimate audience with stories of her youth and her family's sometime plight as relations of an Army chaplain. In Cole Peters, Malone's protagonist, we find a piece of ourselves or our former selves: confused, searching, clutching to the familiar, losing ourselves to music and fleeting romances. Cole is a high school jo [...]

      15 year-old Cole is the daughter of an army chaplain coming of age during the first gulf war. She is an athlete, a musician, and a young woman exploring what life has to offer. The book is organized around the vocabulary words Cole's tutor has given her, and the device works beautifully. Malone never attempts to define Cole's sexuality or simplify her journey, and that is what makes this book so powerful. This book is about that, but also about so much more, just as human beings are sexual being [...]

      Jill Malone has done it again!! Written a wonderful novel that makes you think and feel, and though it's about a teenage girl, it still feels very real to me, who's got teenage years far, far behind me.Waiting for the next one!!!

      Go Jill Malone. Why did I wait so long to read her third, and possibly, best novel. Maybe I was frightened to be plunged back into the high school world. But Malone's great language and heart take the reader and the characters into the scary world of adolescence then lift us up.

      Sixteen year old Cole is an army brat traveling every few years and finds love of self in Jersey. Didn't enjoy narrative. Thought characters were not developed enough.
