The Nowhere Girls

by Amy Reed
£7.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (2017)

The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed Three misfits come together to avenge the rape of a fellow classmate and in the process trigger a change in the misogynist culture at their high school transforming the lives of everyone around them in this searing and timely story.
 
Who are the Nowhere Girls? They're every girl. But they start with just three:
 
Grace, the preacher's daughter who unwittingly moved into the old house of a victim whose pain adorns the walls.
 
Bold Rosina, whose heart has become hardened by all of the straight girls who broke it.
 
And misunderstood Erin, the girl who finds more solace in science and order than she does in people.
 
They are brought together by the idea of changing the narrative of a girl they had never met, Lucy Moynihan, the victim of a sexual assault who was victimised further by people who found it easier to believe she had cried wolf than to confront what had really happened to her. A girl who, through the course of one evening, went from an excited teenager who felt wanted by a boy for the first time, to someone else entirely, with 'a voice in the darkness, giving her a new name: Slut'.
 
Together, they form the Nowhere Girls, and decide to avenge the rape of a girl none of them knew.
