Här är en bok som innehåller allt! Handlingen kretsar kring en sekt på 60-talet i USA, men handlar om så mycket mer än så. Stora frågor om livet och att växa upp blandas med riktig spänning. Otroligt välskriven och helt omöjlig att lägga ifrån sig! /Rebecca

Kalifornien 1969. 14-åriga Evie Boyd dras till en grupp tjejer hon aldrig sett förut - de är vilda, annorlunda och fria. Speciellt vill hon bli sedd av och vara nära den äldre och mystiska Suzanne. Med inspiration från Charles Manson-kulten och de grova morden skriver Cline om ensamhet, jakten på bekräftelse och kärlek, vackert och morbidt. / Jonna
