Meet Mary: She’s beautiful, she’s nice, and her ski star boyfriend is cheating on her.
Meet Crystal: She’s a townie, she works at Mod Jeans, and she’s cheating with Mary’s boyfriend.
Meet Sylvia: She’s nasty, she’s rich, and she’s got something up her Prada-designed sleeve.
Meet Amber: She’s a flake, she’s the barista at the hottest coffee shop in Aspen, and she serves up gossip even hotter than grande skim lattes.
Meet Peggy: She’s Mary’s best friend, she’s a snowboarder and aspiring chef, and she has no idea how to cope with all these girls.
A modern retelling of Clare Booth Luce’s classic play The Women (which featured not one male in the cast), The Girls is a quick-witted, stylish comedy about friendship, love, and most important, gossip! An elite Aspen prep school sets the stage for jealousy and intrigue as the lives of many girls tangle into a wickedly fun mess (in which no boys ever appear). Fans of Gossip Girl will delight in the irresistible cast of The Girls.
Praise for The Girls
“Fans of gossipy plots full of backstabbing and questions of love and friendship will enjoy this as a confection, but it can also be read as a meatier critique of the girls’ choices and priorities.” —Booklist
“This engaging book is truly a guilty pleasure.” —Children’s Literature
