The Girls: A Novel Cover Image

Availability: Special Order
Published: Random House - June 14th, 2016

In Emma Cline's electric debut novel we are exposed not only to the free-wheeling, free love feel of the Sixties but also to the seductive yet dangerous lure of counterculture. Fast-paced and relevant, this is a compelling coming of age novel that explores the relationship between girls and the women they idolize. I couldn't put it down! ~ Reviewed by Whitney Kaaz
