Description


Welcome to Anne Bradstreet College, an all-girls prep school in Boston, where a high SAT score is the ultimate status symbol, followed closely by a string of Tiffany pearls. At ABC, as the school is affectionately known, high school isn't just about shoes, boys and weekend getaways; it's about becoming more accomplished than Joan of Arc. Good Girls follows the various personalities of the ABC Debate Team, a collection of high-achieving young women who never break curfew, always do their homework, and all have plans of attending Ivy League colleges. Perhaps the most over-achieving of all her friends is Allie Denning, a tenth grader who is the youngest captain of the ABC Debate Team in the school's long history. Little does Allie know, her tidy life is about to change. Enter the 15 year-old Octavia Irving, a wild party girl from Montreal, and daughter to now-estranged trust fund-baby parents, Sophie and Mordecai. Allie is a consummate rule-follower, while Octavia loves to break any rule she can for the sake of it. By getting to know each other, both girls influence and change one another. Ultimately, Good Girls is a feminist coming-of-age story about two very different young women. Each girl must decide whether to embrace the life she's been living, or rebel against her current reality.

Good Girls is the first book in a planned series of witty, daring and feminist-first YA novels that will follow Allie and Octavia throughout their time as students at ABC.
