'Every word has the touch of a genius' BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH

'A pin-sharp, propulsive story' KIRAN MILLWOOD HARGRAVE

Everyone has heard of Girls.
But what happened to the women they became?

At the time of her death, the press wrote many things about Ingrid Olssen:

She was a brilliant artist. She was a terrible mother to her girls, Mattie and Nora. And that her legacy would live on forever.

Even so, it's unlikely the world will ever see another Ingrid Olssen exhibition - her last request to her daughters was to throw her ashes in the canyon and her paintings in the sea.

But as Mattie and Nora reluctantly embark on an all-or-nothing trip to fulfil her wishes, they start to unpick the painful scars of their past.

And soon they begin to realise that the ties that bound them, might also break them...

Perfect for fans of Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason and Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. GIRLS is as devastating as it is hilarious, as tender and moving as it is shocking - this is a book that will stay with you long after you have turned the final pages.
