Product Description

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

This is a terrible observation but Charlie Manson is hot again. He and his exploits tend to bubble up every decade. This invites investigation and homage. To prove my point there are two books fictionalizing 'the family'. In addition to Cline's there is American Girls by Alison Umminger. Not to mention the Netflix series with David Duchovony called Aquarius. In all three, Charlie has become a bit player which is fascinating. Is this because we have exhausted our research and portrayals of him or is it because he was just a psycho hick without the depth he was credited with at the time of his crimes?

The Girls is focused on the female family members of a Manson-like clan seen through the eyes of a new recruit named Evie (Aquarius is teasing out its plot in a similar way). Evie is an innocent. A blank slate or so it seems. Cline does a great job showing teenage tedium and how so much of those years are spent waiting for something to happen.

As we all know much happens and to credit this latest interest in this horrible episode, we have never truly heard from Manson's acolytes. I feel they were more aware of what they were doing and did compared to the spacey demeanour shown in interviews and news footage. All drugs and supposed Manson influence aside, these people had brains, morals and every chance to say no or leave.

Cline explores the notion of fate or preordained events that bothers me. It once again let's people off the hook so to speak. Still the book is well written though could have been simpler in language given Evie's life. It is also very creepy so the atmosphere is among the best part of the book. We all know what is going to happen but the suspense still builds. The result is the same ... decades later we are still asking ourselves, why?

This book is one of the best i have ever read. I could not put it down and throughout had many moments where I resonated so deeply with Emma Clines incredible writing of female adolescence. A magical book… I am forever moved.

This is a must read !!!!

I wish I had read this book when I was younger. To know a little more of myself and understand my reactions. This book captures so well the quite typical transformation of a teenage girl from awkward innocence to a flippant rebelliousness that in this case has tragic consequences.

It is always fascinating, albeit in an unqualified sociologist way, to enter the mind of someone who has been highly suggestible. I enjoyed the closeness I gained with the protagonist. Thoroughly gripping!

I enjoyed this book but this story is very dark and shows the choices we make and the choices other people make on our behalf can influence the rest of our lives and how with age we get some wisdom.
