All sixteen-year-old Georgia Avis wants is everything, but the poverty and hardship that defines her life has kept her from the beautiful and special things she knows she deserves. When she stumbles upon the dead body of thirteen-year-old Ashley James, Georgia teams up with Ashley's older sister Nora, to find the killer before he strikes again, and their investigation throws Georgia into a glittering world of unimaginable privilege and wealth--and all she's ever dreamed. But behind every dream lurks a nightmare, and Georgia must reconcile her heart's desires with what it really takes to survive. As Ashley's killer closes in and their feelings for one another grow, Georgia and Nora will discover when money, power, and beauty rule, it's not always a matter of who is guilty but who is guiltiest--and the only thing that might save them is each other.

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

Left me with lots of questions

I’m honestly not sure what I just read. The entire cult culture of Aspera had me completed creeped out throughout the book, which had me looking forward to the culmination of the story at the conclusion. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Everything about “I’m the Girl” fell flat for me. While Georgia’s character came full circle & we saw her mature in regards to her relationship with her deceased mother & her attitude towards Aspera, I didn’t feel we got closure when it came to her mom, Matthew, Cleo, Nora, Justin or Kel. I feel like there are so many places Summers could have continued the story & wrapped up the various character lines in a more satisfying way. Left me hoping for more.
