Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Magnetic…Darkly effective, uneasy-making, and beautifully, absorbingly written.” Meg Wolitzer, New York Times bestselling author
“Dark, smart, twisty, and thoroughly addictive. No one maps the thrilling and sometimes dangerous intensity of female friendships better than Megan Abbott.” Tom Perrotta, New York Times bestselling author
“Smart, twisty, penetrating.” Pop Sugar
“In Abbott’s deft hands, friendship is fused to rivalry, and ambition to fear, with an unsettling level of believability.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Abbott plunges us deep into a vividly realized world of intense competition and creates life-or-death stakes where we wouldn’t have known to look for them…This is a brilliant riff on hard science, human nature, and the ultimate unknowability of the human brain.” Booklist (starred review)
“[A] nuanced tale of soured friendships, blood-soaked ambition, and desperate murders…No writer can touch Abbott in the realm of twisted desire and relationships between women, both intimate and feral.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
