Astrid's character arc in story is well done and McKelvie does a good job of bringing her to life. One thing that really helps with this is that the characters in Suburban Glamour seems more like real people in a story rather than characters in a story. This is particularly true with Astrid. Her journey in the story seems very believable and she is very easy to identify with which, combined with McKelvie's excellent job of fleshing her out as a character, makes for an interesting read. McKelvie does a great job of giving the reader some good insights into Astrid's motivations so that you can get a sense of her as character so that when she finally takes action at the end of the story it is very easy to see how she arrived at that point due to her growth throughout the book.
