Evie Barnes is a bad girl. And everyone knows that bad girls make the best friends … A story of murder, secrets and tragedy from the author of MOXIE – as seen on Netflix.
1964. Houston, Texas.
Evie Barnes is a ‘bad’ girl. So are all her friends. They’re the sort who wear bold makeup, laugh too loud and run around with boys. Most of all, they protect their own against the world. So when Evie is saved from being assaulted by a good girl from the right side of the tracks, every rule she’s always lived by is called into question. Now she must rethink everything she knew about loyalty and learn that when girls stick together it doesn’t matter whether they’re ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
In this riveting story of murder, secrets, and tragedy, Jennifer Mathieu reimagines S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders from a female perspective. Bad Girls Never Say Die has all the drama and heartache of that teen classic, but with a feminist take just right for our times.
‘Mathieu has created a story that is wholly her own, and what a mighty story it is.’ The New York Times
