What Kind of Girl

What Kind of Girl

‘A compelling, moving, and empowering story of hope and courage – one that will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page’ Amber Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Way I Used to Be
——————————————————————-
‘He said we’d go to the same college, that we’d live in the same dorm, that we’d end up working in the same city after graduation. Doesn’t every girl dream that her boyfriend will love her like that?’

The girls at North Bay Academy are taking sides. It all started when Mike Parker’s girlfriend showed up with a bruise on her face. Or, more specifically, when she walked into the principal’s office and said Mike hit her. But the students have questions: Why did she go to the principal and not the police? Why did she stay so long if he was hurting her? Obviously, if it’s true, Mike should be expelled. But is it true? Some girls want to rally for his expulsion – and some want to rally around Mike. The only thing that the entire student body can agree on? Someone is lying. And the truth has to come out.

‘Thrillers can so often lean on a fuzzy sense of “insanity” to justify a character’s behaviour, but the handling tends to be superficial; here it proves devastating. This is already one of my favourite books of the year’ Irish Times on A Danger to Herself and Others

‘Cunningly told . . . The author’s cunning deployment of information keeps the reader guessing’ Financial Times
