Beach Reads: “The Girls”

“The Girls” by Emma Cline

Historical Fiction/Literary Fiction/Adult
Publication Date: June 14, 2016

Unearthing the violent, true story of Charles Manson and his cult of women followers, Cline’s “The Girls” tracks a lonely 14-year-old on her hazy, short-lived involvement with the family. Evie Boyd is recently best friendless, and, after her parent’s recent divorce, finds herself in the throes of domestic upheaval. To cope, she does what any teen might do: she shoplifts to break up the monotony and listens to the dogmas of a group that purports to value togetherness rather than greed.
