Life has never been easy for the three Campbell sisters. Jess, Courtney, and Dani live on a remote ranch in Western Canada where they work hard and try to stay out of the way of their father’s fists. One night, a fight gets out of hand and the sisters are forced to go on the run, only to get caught in an even worse nightmare when their truck breaks down in a small town. Events spiral out of control and a chance encounter with the wrong people leaves them in a horrific and desperate situation. They are left with no choice but to change their names and create new lives.
Eighteen years later, they are still trying to forget what happened that summer when one of the sisters goes missing and they are pulled back into their past.
This time there’s nowhere left to run.
As much of a thriller as it is a deep exploration of the bonds among sisters, THOSE GIRLS is an unforgettable portrait of desperation, loyalty, and evil.
This was a fantastic read. Right from the very beginning it pulled you in to the awful situation those poor three sisters faced. It’s unimaginable, and then come across those two boys!
The writing pace was fantastic. I basically didn’t want to put this one down. I was in that story with them and although it was horrific and hard to imagine, the author did a wonderful job of making feel so very real. I always find it slightly annoying that I can’t say what I want to say, especially about the ending because I don’t want to spoil it for you, but it had my heart pumping and a few tears falling.
I think if you’re looking for something that’ll get your heart rate going, then try this. But be warned, it does have triggers relating to rape and violence so if that’s something you generally avoid you may want to consider it, or have a support person you can talk to about it.
My first read from this author and most definitely not my last!
I rated Those Girls: 5/5 stars
