Praise for LAST GIRLS
“A riveting, pulse-pounding story about family, love, and what happens when the end of the world turns out to be the beginning. I loved the fierce, funny, and fantastic Juniper sisters.” ―Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces
“ABAO: All bets are off in this intense, action-packed thriller. Last Girls is both a sister story with heart and a deep-dive into Doomsday Prepper culture that will keep you up all night turning pages.” ―Kelly deVos, author of Day Zero
“Last Girls is a harrowing view into a world where sisterly bonds are sealed in blood, and doomsday is only a breath away. Demetra Brodsky’s portrayal of three girls living on the fringes of society, learning to question authority, identity, and the definition of family, kept me riveted until the final page.” ―Gillian French, Edgar Award nominated author of The Missing Season and The Lies They Tell
“Tense and compulsively readable. . . I won’t be forgetting the Juniper sisters any time soon.” ―Kara Thomas, author of The Cheerleaders
“This gripping thriller laced with dark family secrets had me tearing through the pages. …. prepare to stay up late reading this one!” ―Emmy Laybourne, international bestselling author of the Monument 14 trilogy
“Brodsky weaves a suspenseful tale reflective of the current political landscape, interwoven with Shakespearean subtext . . . this is a story of survival and figuring out who to trust in a world where the characters have been taught to trust no one.” ―School Library Journal
“[this] effective mix of mystery, romance, and strong, capable young women is a real page-turner and will send fans back to Brodsky’s first novel, Dive Smack (2018).” ―Booklist
No one knows how the world will end.
On a secret compound in the Washington wilderness, Honey Juniper and her sisters are training to hunt, homestead, and protect their own.
Train for every situation.
But when danger strikes from within, putting her sisters at risk, training becomes real life, and only one thing is certain:
Nowhere is safe.
What happens when you think the world is ending?
You become a doomsday prepper.
Last Girls was an original story and has very memorable characters. It was a unique read which I throughly enjoyed.
Honey, I liked in the book. She is mostly the leader for her sisters. Always must follow the rules and never trusts an outsider. That is until a boy takes an interest in her and makes her think there might be more than just prepping.
Blue is so sweet in the book. She just follows whatever her sister does at times. Also she has a thing for animals. Pretty neat she has her own Hawk.
Birdie is the rule breaker and wants more out of life. She is in love and rebels against Honey sometimes.
I like the bond all three sisters have for one other. They’re willing to stick together no matter how bad it gets. Also it was very insightful seeing into the world of a doomsday prepper. The cover was a nice take of the sisters also. Overall the book was a good read and love the twists in it.
Thanks for letting me be a part of blog tour. Looking forward to reading more book by this author.
