The Girls by Emma Cline

Book Review

An edgy and disturbing book. Cline steps indie the skin of her teenage protagonist with an ease that makes for uncomfortable yet compulsive reading.

After a falling out with her childhood friend, Evie’s desperation to feel needed and interesting (coupled with a desire to rebel against her mother) leads her into the arms of Suzanne, confident, aloof and beautiful, everything she wishes for herself. Loosely basd on the Mason family murders, Cline has written a harrowing, but plausible book which I would advise mothers with teen girls to avoid!
