Synopsis

Read an exclusive interview with the author





THE WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER. If you're lost, they'll find you...Evie Boyd is fourteen and desperate to be noticed. It's the summer of 1969 and restless, empty days stretch ahead of her. Until she sees them. The girls. Hair long and uncombed, jewelry catching the sun. And at their centre, Suzanne, black-haired and beautiful. If not for Suzanne, she might not have gone. But, intoxicated by her and the life she promises, Evie follows the girls back to the decaying ranch where they live. Was there a warning? A sign of what was coming? Or did Evie know already that there was no way back? "A coming-of-age tale like no other ...the book of the summer". (Grazia).

Read our exclusive author interview

 

My favourite book of 2016 retraces the past of Evie and her ethereal meeting with the girls, a bunch of carefree young women enjoying the summer of 1969. The heat from the sidewalks and the vitality of her new companions stir up a cocktail of love and intoxication that brings Evie out of her shell and gives her the attention she's always craved. But at the edge of their circle lurks Russell, the enigmatic leader of this cult of girls and misfits…
