Good Girls

by Laura Ruby

Good Girls Synopsis

A Forever for the 21st Century. Audrey is a good girl: a good student, daughter and friend. She's also the last person anyone expects to be with Luke DeSalvio, the biggest player at school. On the night she dumps him, someone takes her picture doing something good girls just don't do... The next Monday, messages begin popping up on people's phones and email inboxes. Soon everyone knows, including her teachers, her mum and her dad... Now she must discover strength she never knew he had, find friends where she didn't think she would, and learn that life goes on - no matter how different it is to how you think it's going to be.

Good Girls Press Reviews

Laura Ruby's Good Girls admirably captures the self-inflicted traumas of the teen years... witty, frank about sex, at pains not to indulge in stereotypes, Good Girls will undoubtedly appeal to UK readers. FT Magazine You're bound to get goosebumps reading [this]... This book is a must-read and comes complete with a fabulous twist right at the end.* * * * * Bliss This book truly lives up to its tagline as 'A Forever for the 21st century' [and] heralds a new return to girl power. Write Away From the moment I picked up this book, I was hooked in a way I haven't been for some time... This book had me laughing and, towards the end, crying a little. It is beautifully written. Schools could do a lot worse than stocking this title in their libraries. Good Girls isn't good... it's great. The Book Bag
