The Girls - Emma Cline - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Girls:

Evie's teenage experience with her newly found "family".

My favorite Emma Cline quote about the book:

"There are always places to go..."

Questions to ponder while reading The Girls:

Did you rebel against your parents?

Have you ever taken something too far?

My thoughts about The Girls:

Reminiscent of the Manson Family.

The making of a "cult" classic.

Made me feel better about my actions as a teenager.
