Now in paperback!
 
Meet Mary: She’s beautiful, she’s nice, and her ski star boyfriend is cheating on her.
Meet Crystal: She’s a townie, she works at Mod Jeans, and she’s cheating with Mary’s boyfriend.
Meet Sylvia: She’s nasty, she’s rich, and she’s got something up her Prada-designed sleeve.
Meet Amber: She’s a flake, she’s the barista at the hottest coffee shop in Aspen, and she serves up gossip even hotter than grande skim lattes.
Meet Peggy: She’s Mary’s best friend, she’s a snowboarder and aspiring chef, and she has no idea how to cope with all these girls.
A modern retelling of Clare Booth Luce’s classic play The Women (which featured not one male in the cast), The Girls is a quick-witted, stylish comedy about friendship, love, and most important, gossip! An elite Aspen prep school sets the stage for jealousy and intrigue as the lives of many girls tangle into a wickedly fun mess (in which no boys ever appear). Fans of Gossip Girl will delight in the irresistible cast of The Girls.   Praise for The Girls
“Fans of gossipy plots full of backstabbing and questions of love and friendship will enjoy this as a confection, but it can also be read as a meatier critique of the girls’ choices and priorities.” —Booklist
 “This engaging book is truly a guilty pleasure.” —Children’s Literature

About the Author:

Tucker Shaw was a writer and advice columnist for Alloy and has authored 3 novels, 3 gift/recipe books for Chronicle, numerous teen self-help books, and is currently the food critic for the Denver Post.  He also appeared on the Today Show promoting his recent gift book Everything I Ate.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up—Winter Break is over, so it's back to a prestigious prep school in Aspen for Peggy. At a local coffee shop, she overhears a conversation between Amber, the vapid super-gossiping barista, and Sylvia, a Prada-wearing snob. Peggy is devastated to learn that her friend Mary's boyfriend Stephen is cheating on her with a girl from "down valley." When Mary finds out, it leads to a maze of drama, gossip, and strange alliances. The front flap claims that this book is a "modern retelling of Clare Boothe Luce's The Women." While all of the characters are female (male characters manifest themselves only by phone or text messages), that is where the similarity ends. The novel degrades into a lackluster, stereotypical vignette of the teenagers' lives. The girls are shallow and have no moments of insight. Despite dumping the cheating males in their lives, there is no real empowerment, no real message. That being said, The Girls is a quick read, with all plotlines neatly tied up by the end. The writing is easy to read, possibly appealing to reluctant readers. Fans of private-school dramas might like this book, but it lacks the intricate and sophisticated plot twists of other novels of that genre.—Melyssa Malinowski, Kenwood High School, Baltimore, MD
