THE WORLDWIDE BESTSELLER If you're lost, they'll find youa 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 a the book of the summer' Grazia

And as with so many novels about cults, The Girls is set to inspire a cultish devotion all of its own" * Evening Standard * "A joy to read... Intense, clever, beautiful" * Sunday Times * "Brimming with intelligence and ideas... Buy it for the Mansonesque plot but savour it for its insights" * Irish Times * "I don't know which is more amazing, Emma Cline's understanding of human beings or her mastery of language." -- Mark Haddon
