Praise for LAST GIRLS

"A riveting, pulse-pounding story about family, love, and what happens when the end of the world turns out to be the beginning. I loved the fierce, funny, and fantastic Juniper sisters." ―Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces

"ABAO: All bets are off in this intense, action-packed thriller. Last Girls is both a sister story with heart and a deep-dive into Doomsday Prepper culture that will keep you up all night turning pages." ―Kelly deVos, author of Day Zero

"Last Girls is a harrowing view into a world where sisterly bonds are sealed in blood, and doomsday is only a breath away. Demetra Brodsky's portrayal of three girls living on the fringes of society, learning to question authority, identity, and the definition of family, kept me riveted until the final page." ―Gillian French, Edgar Award nominated author of The Missing Season and The Lies They Tell

"Tense and compulsively readable. . . I won’t be forgetting the Juniper sisters any time soon." ―Kara Thomas, author of The Cheerleaders

"This gripping thriller laced with dark family secrets had me tearing through the pages. .... prepare to stay up late reading this one!" ―Emmy Laybourne, international bestselling author of the Monument 14 trilogy

"Brodsky weaves a suspenseful tale reflective of the current political landscape, interwoven with Shakespearean subtext . . . this is a story of survival and figuring out who to trust in a world where the characters have been taught to trust no one." ―School Library Journal

"[this] effective mix of mystery, romance, and strong, capable young women is a real page-turner and will send fans back to Brodsky's first novel, Dive Smack (2018).” ―Booklist

REVIEW

Sisterhood and Survival. This is the kind of book that I was searching for when I had the opportunity to read this book. This is a feel good book about the bond between sisters in a unique setting compared to most novels about sisterhood.

Honey, Blue, and Birdie are three sisters who live in a Community of doomsday preppers that are all focused on how to survive. Then things take a dark turn as the community they live in becomes dangerous. This book gives an interesting insight into the lives of doomsday preppers, and the way they live their lives.

This was such a different, but exciting new YA novel that is set apart from many other YA thrillers out there. Focusing on a topic that I have not had the privilege to read about in a YA book before. If you are seeking to read a book that is exciting and different, and that focuses on the life of individuals that may be either relatable to different than what you are used to, then you might want to pick up Last Girls. I would highly recommend. 4 out of 5 stars.
