Product Details

Praise

"[An] arresting first novel. . . . What makes it sing are the lyrical descriptions of the intensity of those first times—including first betrayal by a best friend—and the aftermath of ‘remorse . . . grit and shame and a broken, nameless joy.’ Quick-moving, cleanly written: a promising start for Curran." —Kirkus

"The ‘whores’ in this novel are a trio of schoolgirls gone wild. Curran’s gripping narrative is so vivid that it’ll bring back the anguish of being 16 and angry; you’ll feel relieved those days are long-gone." —Glamour

"This is no cautionary tale, but rather a heartbreaking portrait of what life can be like when, as Thisbe says, ‘you’re fifteen and knobby-kneed and you only had a handful of choices. Your world was small and cruel and narrow-minded and breathtaking." –Teen Vogue
