Review of Reputation by Lex Croucher

Young Adult

Reputation: A Novel by [Lex Croucher]

Set in Regency era England, Georgianna goes to live with her aunt and uncle after her parents move to the coast. There she falls into the wrong crowd and makes friends with Frances. Frances, and friends, lead her to do things that she would not normally do. Georgeianna ends up making a mockery of her own reputation and must salvage it.


I am not normally one for historical fiction but this book called to me. I will admit to finding parts of the book a bit slow but overall the book was quite intriguing. George, though a bit of a brat to her aunt and uncle, goes through so much and certainly grows as a character. My personal favorite character was Thomas who was steadfast in his actions and tried to pull the better out of George. The things that George faced in this story are similar to what teens face today. Her friends had problems with substances and she tried to impress the “in crowd.” Through this, the book is relevant to adolescents who can learn a thing about holding their own character.

Many thanks to Net Galley for providing me with an ARC of this book.
