Publisher's Summary

The program includes a bonus bridge story, Greetings from Sunny Los Angeles, featuring Dan Bittner as West McCray.

"Narrator Lori Prince pulls listeners into the complicated world of teenagers with her portrayal of 16-year-old Georgia Avis, who longs to escape poverty and sees her beauty and sexuality as her ticket out."—AudioFile magazine

The next searing and groundbreaking queer young adult novel from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Courtney Summers, already hailed as...

"A stirring, thought-provoking thriller.”—Ashley Audrain, New York Times bestselling author of The Push

"A stunner."—Kate Elizabeth Russell, New York Times bestselling author of My Dark Vanessa

"Powerful."—Angeline Boulley, #1 New York Times bestselling and Printz Award-winning author of Firekeeper’s Daughter

When sixteen-year-old Georgia Avis discovers the dead body of thirteen-year-old Ashley James, she teams up with Ashley's older sister, Nora, to find and bring the killer to justice before he strikes again. But their investigation throws Georgia into a world of unimaginable privilege and wealth, without conscience or consequence, and as Ashley’s killer closes in, Georgia will discover when money, power and beauty rule, it might not be a matter of who is guilty—but who is guiltiest.

A spiritual successor to the breakout hit Sadie, I'm the Girl is a bold and masterful account of how one young woman feels in her body as she struggles to navigate a deadly and predatory power structure while asking listeners one question: if this is the way the world is, do you accept it?

Intense


Reeling from finding the body of a dead teen then being hit by the murderer’s car Georgia doesn’t want to team up with the girl’s sister Nora. Georgia has ambitions of a bigger life than her deceased mother’s, dreams her mother tried to thwart. Solving a murder isn’t part of the plan. After losing money to an unscrupulous photographer promising her a modeling career, Georgia wants a job as an Aspera Girl at an exclusive resort where discretion is *everything*. But everything can be relative.

Courtney Summers pushes the boundaries of comfort with sexual innuendo both appropriate and inappropriate. It made me question my own thoughts on the age of consent, manipulation and attraction. Georgia oozed both sexuality and innocence. In my day, high school students sometimes had parent approved relationships with adults. At most it was considered inappropriate, never a crime if both consented. The idea of a teenager being too young to consent wasn’t part of the discussion. Decades later we know more about power and grooming and the vulnerability of minors as well as sex trafficking.

I’M THE GIRL pushes the boundaries of legality. At times Georgia appears to be steering interactions, though behind her behavior is the naïveté of a young woman who doesn’t consider the potential consequences of her actions. While the responsibility always lies with the adult who crosses the line, the reality is that some people still wonder if she “led him on”. When “him” is “her” all bets are off as to how outsiders will perceive blame.

Without directly asking those questions, Courtney Summers made me squirm mad question what I *know* with what I experienced and the culture when I was Georgia’s age. I wondered what charges, if any, a prosecutor would deem viable.

I’M THE GIRL evokes a plethora of emotions, some conflicting. Though not every reader will love this often disturbing book, I’M THE GIRL is a brave exploration of both the beautiful and ugly sides of a teen’s emotional and sexual awakening.
