Ok listen up psychological thriller fans do I have a book recommendation for you! The Girls Are All So Nice Here by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn is a must read for 2021. Dark, disturbing and oh so wicked. this is one book that you won’t want to miss!

I have to be honest up front and say that I am always weary of reading any type of stories where bullying is at the core, having been bullied myself at school, but I was drawn to this book immediately after reading the blurb, where I was compelled to keep going and I am really glad that I did. This book is just so messed up!

What makes The Girls Are All So Nice Here stand out over similar tales, is its narrator is one of the bullies. A bold move from the author, which in this case works really well. It is a fascinating read to see how those earlier actions and choices of Ambrosia and Sloane/Sully reverberated through time to impact their lives today. Sometimes you just can’t run from the past.

The Girls Are All So Nice Here is a captivating read right from the beginning and Laurie Elizabeth Flynn has done a fantastic job of bringing it all to life, This one has it all. Toxic friendships, manipulation, revenge and a thrilling ending and twist that will leave you speechless. This is my first book from Laurie Elizabeth Flynn and it will most definitely not be my last!
