Five Star Review


Darkly juicy and taut with the intensity of desire, The Girls Are All Nice Here blows apart the idea of the sisterhood. Nice girls can do bad things…


When Ambrosia first arrives at prestigious college Wesleyan, she’s desperate to fit in. But Amb struggles to navigate the rules of this strange, elite world, filled with privileged ‘nice’ young women – until she meets the charismatic but troubled Sully, with whom she forms an obsessive friendship but the games they play have devastating consequences.


I adored the characters of Amb and Sully. They were so complex, desperate and cruel. It was fascinating to witness the lengths Amb would go to in order to belong and the lies she told herself in order to see them through. And I just loved the wholesome yet layered Flora.


From start to finish this novel's tense writing explores female friendships during the most vulnerable of times - the teenage years. The years where you aren't sure who you are yet or who you should be. When you just want to find your tribe. It is a compelling and riveting study of how girls can be so mean to each other.


The greatest strength in the writing is that although I hated both Amb and Sully, I also wanted to help them, I could at some level understand why. I wanted them to stop. This is rare when the characters are so ruthlessly mean but its a sign of incredible writing.


I inhaled this book within 24hrs desperate to find out what happened and I think you will too.


Highly Recommended.
