Publisher's Summary

Three misfits come together to avenge the rape of a fellow classmate and in the process trigger a change in the misogynist culture at their high school, transforming the lives of everyone around them in this searing and timely story.

Who are the Nowhere Girls?

They're everygirl. But they start with just three:

Grace Salter is the new girl in town whose family was run out of their former community after her Southern Baptist preacher mom turned into a radical liberal after falling off a horse and bumping her head.

Rosina Suarez is the queer punk girl in a conservative Mexican immigrant family who dreams of a life playing music instead of babysitting her gaggle of cousins and waitressing at her uncle's restaurant.

Erin Delillo is obsessed with two things: marine biology and Star Trek: The Next Generation, but they aren't enough to distract her from her suspicion that she may in fact be an android.

When Grace learns that Lucy Moynihan, the former occupant of her new home, was run out of town for having accused the popular guys at school of gang rape, she's incensed that Lucy never had justice. For their own personal reasons, Rosina and Erin feel equally deeply about Lucy's tragedy, so they form an anonymous group of girls at Prescott High to resist the sexist culture at their school, which includes boycotting sex of any kind with the male students.

Told in alternating perspectives, this groundbreaking novel is an indictment of rape culture and explores with bold honesty the deepest questions about teen girls and sexuality.

Must read for teen girls facing rape culture

Anyone wondering how rape culture works in American high schools need look no further than “The Nowhere Girls”. This novel should be required reading in Freshman English classes. Girls and boys in the town of Prescott unite against a bully culture deep as the football coach, principal, and top team members.

Good book but bad audio quality

The story itself is very good however the audio randomly goes from good to bad. It sounds like the narrator is randomly in a tunnel or way to close to the microphone and this really distracted from the story.

Amazing book!!!

**Trigger warning: rape, sexual harassment

This book was amazing. The author did a phenomenal job exploring an important and difficult subject. The narrator was great too. She did a fabulous job giving each of the main characters their own distinct voices.

The Nowhere Girls

I think all girls should read this book in middle school . I know I was quite naïve at that age and this would have made me more aware. I also think it would make a really good movie. Girls and women together are stronger. Girl Power!!
