We’ve both just finished ‘The Girls’ by Emma Cline, and didn’t talk for about a week while we were reading it. It’s set in 1960s West Coast America, and revolves around a young girl who falls into a Charles Manson-like cult. The prose is very heady and beautiful, while the story itself becomes progressively disturbing. It’s one of those books you wish you could un-read and read again for the first time. Highly recommended!
