ABOUT THE BOOK:
Two former best friends return to their college reunion to find that they’re being circled by someone who wants revenge for what they did ten years before—and will stop at nothing to get it—in this shocking psychological thriller about ambition, toxic friendship, and deadly desire.
A lot has changed in the years since Ambrosia Wellington graduated from college, and she’s worked hard to create a new life for herself. But then an invitation to her ten-year reunion arrives in the mail, along with an anonymous note that reads “We need to talk about what we did that night.”
It seems that the secrets of Ambrosia’s past—and the people she thought she’d left there—aren’t as buried as she’d believed. Amb can’t stop fixating on what she did or who she did it with: larger-than-life Sloane “Sully” Sullivan, Amb’s former best friend, who could make anyone do anything.
At the reunion, Amb and Sully receive increasingly menacing messages, and it becomes clear that they’re being pursued by someone who wants more than just the truth of what happened that first semester. This person wants revenge for what they did and the damage they caused—the extent of which Amb is only now fully understanding. And it was all because of the game they played to get a boy who belonged to someone else, and the girl who paid the price.
Alternating between the reunion and Amb’s freshman year, The Girls Are All So Nice Here is a shocking novel about the brutal lengths girls can go to get what they think they’re owed, and what happens when the games we play in college become matters of life and death.
OMG this book!! I loved it!!
Witty, dark, fast-paced, full of lies, betrayal, deception and wild parties. This book will have you hooked as you read through the chapters. Chapters alternate between “then” and “now” and I loved getting little glimpses at a time into the past and what happened al those years ago, piece by piece. It adds to the suspense of the novel and leaves you wanting to know more, before jumping ahead to the present again, only building the suspense.
I enjoyed reading about the main character Amb and her wild University days. So many shocks and twists as you read about her budding friendship with Sully. They were wild girls and would stop at nothing to get what they wanted. It was a toxic relationship, and they might not have been fully aware of it at the time, or maybe one of them did. They did awful things together, things that would haunt them in the future, as we are to fid out as we read along.
A book that I devoured and highly recommend you get your hands on as soon as it is released on March 9th, 2021.
MY REVIEW: 5/5 stars
