This Week’s Book:
The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed
Who are the Nowhere Girls?
They’re every girl. But they start with just three.
Grace, the preacher’s daughter who moves into the former house of a girl whose pain adorns the walls.
Bold Rosina, who dreams of a life of playing music instead of waitressing her uncle’s restaurant.
And misunderstood Erin, the girl who finds more solace in science and order than she does in people.
They are brought together by the idea of changing the narrative of Lucy Moynihan, the girl behind the graffiti in Grace’s bedroom. When Grace learns that Lucy was run out of town for accusing the popular guys at school of gang rape, she’s incensed that she never got justice. Together, Grace, Erin and Rosina form the Nowhere Girls, and decide to avenge the rape of a girl none of them knew.
Why I want to read it:
I bought this book on a whim when I saw it was on sale, and I thought that it sounded like an incredibly powerful read. I’ve since seen some very positive reviews, so that definitely makes me look forward to reading it even more!
