Editorial Reviews

Review

"This may be the most important sports title of the year."―Library Journal (starred review)

"Abigail Pesta's new book lends an essential platform to the voices of the brave women who brought down predator Larry Nassar. We must continue to listen to these women and their stories. Now, we can do just that, thanks to Ms. Pesta's excellent reporting."―Gloria Steinem

"Pesta's empathy for these girls and women is palpable, and powerful. ... The book has the effect of a chorus of righteous anger."―Los Angeles Times

"This is a courageous, courageous book. ... The Girls is probably the most thorough account of this case."―Dr. Phil

"Journalist Abigail Pesta reveals a shocking and ultimately inspiring chronicle of what Nassar's survivors endured, and how a decades-long fight to be heard was finally won."―Salon

"In the #MeToo era, The Girls is a powerful addition to the nationwide conversations and reckonings happening around sexual abuse, harassment, and violence."―Ms. Magazine

"Pesta's compassionate in-depth reporting is startling in its entirety and candor and should be read by coaches, counselors, therapists, law enforcement officers, sports writers, parents of young athletes and athletes, university officials and especially university presidents.... Her writing is straightforward and compelling without straying into sensationalism."―Lansing City Pulse

"In interviews with 25 survivors -- including the likely first victim and the last -- journalist Abigail Pesta documents how [Larry Nassar] honed his manipulation skills to become the most prolific predator in sports history."―Marie Claire

"This book is one that every single person who works in sport should read."―Female Coaching Network

"The damage to these young women has been immeasurable ... but they have reclaimed control of their lives from a predator who is destined to die in prison. The Girls is their story of courage."―New York Journal of Books
