Three girls went into the woods; two came out.
It sounds like a joke, or a riddle. But it was only, would ever after be, the rest of our life.

This is not a story of bad things happening to bad girls. I say this because I know you, Dex, and I know how you think. I'm going to tell you a story, and this time, it will be the truth.

Hannah Dexter is a nobody, ridiculed and isolated at school by golden girl Nikki Drummond. But in their junior year of high school, Nikki's boyfriend walks into the woods and shoots himself.

In the wake of the suicide, Hannah befriends new girl Lacey and soon the pair are inseparable, bonded by their shared hatred of Nikki. Lacey transforms good girl Hannah into Dex who is up for any challenge Lacey throws at her. The two girls bring their combined wills to bear on the community in which they live and think they are invulnerable.

But Lacey has a secret, about life before her better half, and it's a secret that will change everything...

“Friendship starts and ends with tragedy...”

A dark, obsessive friendship starting and ending with tragedy. It captures the dark intensity of companionship extremely well. I must say that it is not an easy novel to read, making you feel shaken after reading the... More

“All about the 90s...”

Fantastically 90s. Really puts you back there. Or just there I guess, if you're a kiddie. Reminiscent of Megan Abbott. Maybe not quite as good as Abbott, but still very, very good.

“These Girls are on Fire ...”

First off, I love the fragmented edginess of the US cover (top) which I think is indicative of the troubled girls' characters. I'm not so sure about the cover for the UK publication (above) as I don't... More
