In her eagerly awaited second novel, critically acclaimed author Jillian Medoff demonstrates once again her unique ability to tell an utterly original story. A hilarious tale of revenge and redemption, Good Girls Gone Bad celebrates the indomitable strength and ingenuity of the female spirit.
Janey Fabre knows she isn't exactly the average thirty-something woman. After all, she has found herself stalking her ex-boyfriend on more than one occasion. But when she joins group therapy, she is convinced that the other women she meets are ten times loopier than she is. Suzanna aka "The Dream Weaver" prefers the company of her dog to human beings, Laura is a record-breaking gold medalist in the one-night-stand Olympics, and Bethany, a forty-year-old divorcee, still lives with her mother and shares her toe rings. Not to mention Valentine, a painfully shy beauty who binges on Dove Bars; Ivy, a sweet-talking southern belle who binges on Botox; and Natasha, who wears a face mask to protect herself against unseen airborne pathogens.
Over time, however, Janey and the girls learn to trust one other, so much so that the outrageous scheme they concoct for asserting themselves actually begins to make sense. And suddenly they're embroiled in a reckless and exhilarating misadventure that wreaks havoc on their lives but ultimately illuminates for them the power of loyalty and the true meaning of friendship.
As fiercely intelligent as it is laugh-out-loud funny, Good Girls Gone Bad showcases Jillian Medoff's dazzling and distinctive voice, and clearly establishes her as a writer of rare and remarkable gifts.
