The girls at Modesta High School feel like they're stuck in some antifeminist time warp—and they've had enough. They are members of the Daughters of Eve. It's more than a school club—it's a secret society, a sisterhood led by their art teacher Ms. Stark. Their quest for change seems harmless at first, but at Ms. Stark's urging, their actions become more violent and vengeful... They are blinded by their oath of loyalty. Can one of them break the spell before real tragedy strikes?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I was reminded of Lord of the Flies…[Daughters of Eve] is finely constructed and told.” New York Times Book Review
“Less a celebration of female self-determination than a cautionary tale.” NPR
“An excellent example of vigilante justice gone wrong.” School Library Journal
“Duncan balances the jerks out with the decent guys, shows that the world can  be unfair, and the difference between fighting injustice and perpetuating it…Still capable of opening eyes, provoking thoughts, and causing a serious case of the creeps.” Leila Roy, Kirkus Reviews
