Girls of Little Hope

Sam Beckbessinger & Dale Halvorsen

Available At:

Three girls went into the woods. Only two came back, covered in blood and with no memory of what happened. Or did they?

Being fifteen is tough – tougher when you live in a boring-ass small town in 1996. Donna, Rae and Kat keep each other sane with the fervour of teen friendships, zine-making and some amateur sleuthing into the town’s most enduring mysteries: a lost gold mine, and why little Ronnie Gaskins burned his parents alive a decade ago. Their hunt will lead them to a hidden cave from which only two of them return alive.

As the police investigate, Rae and Donna will have to return to the cave where they discover a secret so shattering that no one who encounters it will ever be the same.
