"It is all the girls, all their voices, calling out as loud as they can. They burn through darkness. They brand the night.”
The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed
An anthem for women everywhere!
Possible triggers..Rape is the topic. Graphic rape scene.
This book should be required reading...everywhere.
It isn't for everyone. As you may have seen, it is about a group of girls who, rise up to get justice for a fellow schoolmate who was gang raped.They form the Nowhere Girls.
The Nowhere Girls are seeking, not just justice, but to open the minds and eyes of the community where they live about rape and the treatment of women in general.
The Nowhere girls are angry. They are angry at the lack of justice the former student at this school received, they are determined to change things.The Nowhere girls are your neighbors....your friends..and yourselves.
So the group is formed..and they are anonymous....however...they have no idea..nor does anyone else...what they are about to unleash....
I loved this book so so much and was so deeply moved by it, I sort of demanded (or begged) my book group to have this as one of out selections.
It isn't for everyone. It is heavy duty reading and the subject matter could be triggering to some people.
Some of my fellow book members did not care for this. It is written in an unusual style which I loved but not every book is for every person as we all well know.
This style is that the story is told from many different POV'S..all from females. Some of these females are major characters but not all of them.
I adored the style but not everybody will.But if the themes of the book interest you..this is one to read. I loved it, everything about it and am so glad that I found this book. Five awesome stars.
