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.
Review by Stormi
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I have found that every book I read by Chevy Stevens is better than the last. This one is the best I've read so far. It followed 3 girls who have a very tragic past. It follows them as they try to get away from an abusive father and their lives after. It was very heart wrenching.
This book tells a powerful story. So many young women in real life face the horrors that these young girls faced. The emotions were so real. Its like you are really in the story facing all the horrors and all the good times with them.
Dani- You have Dani who is he oldest. She is the one who has to change her life and be the mom for her younger sisters. Throughout the book she has such strength and love for them that, if you have siblings, can be recognized as pure love.
Courtney- Courtney is the wild middle child. She is the one who doesn't like the rules and is the one who causes many issues, but in my eyes that is the sign that she needs the most saving. She made me mad and at times I didn't like her, but in the end she was the one that broke my heart the most.
Jess- Jess is the youngest. She is the one that is highly protected and she suffers so much more. While her sisters go through some horrible things, she faces some that could never compare to them.
By far the best part of the book to me was the ending. Its like the peace that they so desperately needed and wanted was found, finally. Once again Chevy did it. She writes with so much feeling. It makes you quickly get swept into the story. Its so easy to love the characters. She is one of the best authors I have ever read and cannot wait to read more from her.
