About the books
Lizzie and Evie are inseparable. They walk home from school together, sleep over at each other's houses, even flirt with boys together. And they tell each other everything. Or at least, that's what Lizzie thinks – until Evie goes missing, and Lizzie suddenly realizes their friendship wasn't quite what she thought.
The End of Everything by Megan Abbott, is a taut and suspenseful novel of friendship, loss and the dark undercurrents of adolescence.
“An accomplished psychological thriller, familiar and twisting in just the right measures… This is a highly-skilled and addictive novel.” – Sunday Times
There's something dangerous about the boredom of teenage girls – Coach said that once. She said it like she knew, and understood.
When Colette French arrives at school one term and takes charge of the cheer squad, she brings a hint of threat. Sleek, remote and careless, she transforms the girls into warriors – and rivals. Addy and Beth find that for the first time they have secrets from one another. But their mentor is playing her own deadly game, and there is everything to lose.
“Tense, dark and beautifully written” – Gillian Flynn
When Lise Daniels collapses to the floor during maths class, a cloud of fear and speculation settles over the school. Parents and teachers scramble to protect the students, but how do you stop what you can't contain?
Because Lise is only the first: soon more girls fall victim, betrayed by their bodies. As hysteria swells, the safe world they've been building for their children starts to come apart.
“Nerve-shredding, noir-ish plots, creeping tension and deep characterisation… The best writer of contemporary thrillers today.” – Independent on Sunday
