Two unrelated events begin the spiral of Hannah Dexter's life: the star basketball player commits suicide, and Lacey Champlain transforms unremarkable Hannah into "Dex," a girl of the Docs-wearing, Cobain-worshipping generation. Together Lacey and her protégée are invincible and terrible; Dex is more than Hannah ever was. They're united against the common foes of mundanity and mean girls, unconcerned with vanquishing the devils inside themselves—even as their conservative town vilifies them. Wasserman's adult debut is a scorchingly honest look at the dark side of unshakable female friendship, set on the backdrop of the early '90s satanic panic. This novel is so brilliant you'll want to look away, but you won't be able to. ~ Reviewed by Paige Mushaw
