After a long period of time I call a book slump, where I had nothing to read, Gunslinger Girl was just what I needed! A book for adventure fiction fans, this middle-grade novel has action, romance, and betrayal -- anyone can find something to interest them in these 356 pages. Gunslinger Girl is set in the future, after a second Civil War with a once again lawless west. The story follows a young woman named Serendipity Jones who has run away from a forced marriage. Armed with just her dead mother’s specially-made revolvers and perfect aim, “Pity” might have a bit of an advantage in this Wild Wild West. This book is just what Serendipity’s name means: a pleasant surprise!
