My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I subscribed to Jenny Holiday’s newsletter because I love her @tropeheroine twitter feed. I picked up The Fixer because I was curious to see what her books would be like. Also, the idea of a school newsroom in the 80s made me think of Press Gang. Remember Press Gang? I was in love with Spike for years. Sigh.
Back to The Fixer. I was expecting something fun and fast. I wasn’t disappointed. Great dialogue. Interesting and well rounded characters. All of the eighties references (I loved that!). I really enjoyed it.
One very interesting thing was how different things are when people aren’t instantly connected to each other all the time. More room for misunderstandings and missed connections.
This was a fun read. It pretty much does what it says on the tin (cover). I will be reading the rest of the New Wave Newsroom books.
