THE GIRLS OF MARCH
Elin Angstrom doesn’t like to label it an attempted suicide. It was an accident. Or, at least, that’s what she wants her three best friends to believe.
Rosie, Jenna, and Ket still don’t understand what made Elin hurt herself, but they’re determined to keep her happy now. So when Elin decides a perfect prom night is the key to getting her old life back (and needs an assist in lying to her parents), Princeton-bound Jenna reluctantly agrees. When Elin asks for help winning back her ex, party-girl Ket is happy to oblige. And when Elin announces she wants to pre-game at a mysterious new friend’s house, not even perpetual downer Rosie can rain on that parade.
Then Elin disappears halfway through the dance.
The girls split up in the hopes of finding Elin before anyone realizes she’s missing. But as their curfew approaches and Elin remains nowhere to be found, they must question what loyalty to their best friend really means.
Told from the alternating perspectives of four lifelong best friends, THE GIRLS OF MARCH is a contemporary YA novel, complete at 65,000 words. Inspired by the characters in LITTLE WOMEN, THE GIRLS OF MARCH will appeal to fans of THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS and THE SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK.
