One of PopSugar‘s “Best New Books to Put in Your Beach Bag This Summer”
One of PureWow‘s “Best Beach Reads of Summer 2019″ 

One of Crime Reads‘s “Most Anticipated Crime Books of Summer” 

Girls Like Us is a smart thriller that will keep you guessing.”—PopSugar 

“[An] excellent crime novel…[Alger] captures the social dynamics of Suffolk’s eastern extremes perfectly. The first-person narrative is appropriately terse—Nell delivers a thorough report—but it occasionally surprises with a gripping depth…Highly recommended.”—Booklist (starred review) 

“[A] propulsive thriller…Alger expertly ratchets up the suspense all the way to the explosive finale. Readers will hope to see more of tough, smart Nell.”—Publishers Weekly 

“[Nell] has a vulnerable, empathetic core that will pull readers in, and Alger has a feel for small-town dynamics….The tension becomes nearly unbearable as Nell realizes she truly can’t trust anyone. Readers can expect a few genuine surprises, and the light Alger shines on society’s most vulnerable members is an important one. Melancholy and addictive.” Kirkus Reviews

“This thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page.”The Everygirl 

Girls Like Us is the best of psychological suspense: nuanced, expertly fast-paced, and full of surprises you truly don’t see coming. Cristina Alger is my kind of writer—as graceful on the page as she is gritty.” —Harlan Coben

“Riveting…I’m a fan of Cristina Alger, who now proves that she can write about anything, anywhere.” —Lisa Scottoline

“Cristina Alger, who is known for creating pulse-pounding plots and gutsy female protagonists, has done it again. Gritty, twisty, and unputdownable, GIRLS LIKE US is sure to be the thriller to read this season.” —Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, authors of The Wife Between Us and An Anonymous Girl

“A smashing read. Instantly gripping and compulsively readable, with a heroine as vulnerable as she is tenacious.” —Riley Sager, author of The Last Time I Lied

Girls Like Us is something special: A beautiful, deeply textured novel and a poignant, surprising mystery. I loved it, every chapter and every word. I’m going to be thinking about it as a reader, a father, and a storyteller for a long, long time.”—Chris Bohjalian, author of The Flight Attendant
