This book started out hard to get into but eventually I couldn't stop reading and it even made me cry a little.

Realistic sci-fi at it's best! I love this author and this book is fantastic. Full of twists and turns but also so rooted in real life.

I really wasn't sure about this book at first, it was sort of slow and I couldn't remember who each character was. But eventually it became so captivating I could not wait for my breaks at work to read it!

Victoriahoperose I really enjoyed this one also! 6mo

I loved this book! I could not put it down. Although it is a fictional story it was so rooted in the real world that I had no problem believing every word of it. This book will stay with me for a long time.

I read this book fairly quickly and was invested in the main character, Emily's, story but something was missing for me. Perhaps it is because I was born 45 or so years after these characters were and my world is so far removed from the world they lived in. Perhaps it is because a male author was writing two female characters. Perhaps it was a mix of both, but I could not get fully invested in this book.

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline
Mehso-so

I thought the perspective of this book was interesting and really shines a light on how young girls and women have so much pressure on them and can do anything to feel like they fit in with a group. What I did not like about this book was that it was way too spot on to Charles manson's story.

What a fantastic book. When I started it I saw it going one way, but about a chapter in I realized I was wrong and pleasantly so. You really get to know each of the characters in this book and their stories are all relatable on some level.

Very interesting book premise! It was a little hard to keep my interest in the beginning but once certain things get reveled it was definitely something I wanted to see through the end.

I randomly picked this book off the shelf at the library and it turned out to be so good! It's a quick read that keeps you guessing how things really unfolded until the end. Plus there is a bit of commentary on our criminal justice system which I liked.

Just do yourself a favor and read this book. It is non-stop from the get go and you will never be able to guess where it is taking you next.
