Editorial Reviews


"The Girls Are All So Nice Here" kept me up all night — literally. I tore through the book in less than 24 hours, forcing my eyes to stay open as if the remaining pages wouldn't be there in the morning."—USA Today

"A college reunion. A toxic friend group. Revenge. All the makings of a page-turner are here in Flynn’s book." —Entertainment Weekly
"This chilling and twisty thriller centers on two former best friends who return to their alma mater for a college reunion. Once there, they quickly realize someone is targeting them for revenge for what they did ten years ago. Devastatingly dark and thrumming with tension, The Girls Are all So Nice Here offers a juicy, unflinching portrait of the complexities of friendship and social ambition."—Book Riot

"The story takes place in two alternating time periods: the freshman year for the girls of the story, and the ten-year reunion for the same bunch. Somewhere back in the early times but not revealed until much later, terrible things have happened on campus, and somebody’s going to pay a penalty. Many secrets are withheld until late in the story, and while this is a familiar device, Flynn makes it work with special power by piling on the details in numbers and in specificity. Sex, betrayal, scheming — all come into play in dark and heavy loads. Is there someone to root for in all of this? Only at the reader’s peril."—The Toronto Star

"With The Girls Are All So Nice Here, Flynn takes the insecurities that come with being a young woman and sharpens them into a deadly point. I read open-mouthed as Amb navigated the complex social calculus of her worlds right up until that stinging kick of a final chapter left me breathless."—Chandler Baker, New York Times bestselling author of Whisper Network

"Laurie Flynn smartly examines the darker complexities of friendship, ambition, and social dynamics in this propulsive thriller. Full of twists and surprises, THE GIRLS ARE ALL SO NICE HERE reminds us that the past has a long reach, and secrets never stay buried forever. I couldn’t stop reading until the shocking final twist!"—Megan Miranda, bestselling author of The Girl From Widow Hills

"Alternating between Amb’s time at college and the present day, Flynn reveals the darkness girls are capable of, building toward a thrillingly unsettling ending."—Electric Literature

“Dark, twisted, and utterly gripping, THE GIRLS ARE ALL SO NICE explores the unparalleled cruelty of mean girls on a leafy college campus. This propulsive thriller has a killer ending to match its killer title.”—Robyn Harding, bestselling author of The Swap

THE GIRLS ARE ALL SO NICE HERE is twisted, compelling, and so very dark. This devastating story about the friends we keep—and those we don’t—is surprising in the best possible way. Flynn's first adult fiction book makes me wonder what she'll come up with next.”—Samantha Downing, USA Today bestselling author of My Lovely Wife and He Started It

Juicy, twisty, and relentlessly unsettling, THE GIRLS ARE ALL SO NICE HERE is more than a thriller; it's a masterful portrait of the complexities of female friendships and the raw yearning to fit in. With characters unflinchingly wrought in all their vulnerability and a setting so real, I felt I'd visited the Wesleyan campus myself, this book is a brilliant and wickedly wild ride. I couldn't put it down. —Andrea Bartz, bestselling author of The Lost Night and The Herd  

"A sharp, pitch-black thriller that takes the mean-girls trope to another level."--KIRKUS

5.0 out of 5 stars No One Is Truly Innocent
By Shannon on March 13, 2021
Unlike any psychological thriller I’ve inhaled over the years, this one kept me reading—not for the “Who Done It”, but for the “OH MY GOD! THE THINGS THESE GIRLS KEEP DOING!”

This book is intense. It’s unsettling. And so real and raw I think I felt my spine split open a few times. Truly horrifying. That said, I binged it in a day, feeding the troops popcorn for dinner because I Just Couldn’t Tear Myself Away.

Flynn’s surgically precise language is so sharp, so stunning, it almost feels like a character in the story. Flynn can twist the reader’s gut in just a few words, simultaneously luring you to the next sentence, the next scheme, the next horrific choice—all while beautifying a character’s deadly mouth with fresh coat of lipstick. Her writing made me feel like Amb and Sully were caught in her devious, writerly web, which made me happy. And that’s saying a lot because joy isn’t a central theme in this novel, if it’s even touched on at all. Still, I didn’t put it down. Couldn’t put it down.

This isn’t a recommended read if you aren’t comfortable with young women openly exploring their sexuality and the power it holds. Or women who dare decide they don’t want kids, that motherhood isn’t for them. Flynn reminds the reader again and again, that being a woman is transactional. She doesn’t shy away from saying all the things that shouldn’t be taboo to talk about. Like a woman’s pleasure. Disappointments. Desires. All the things that make Flynn an insta-buy purchase for me now and forever.

This book has stirred a lot of buzz, with so many readers commenting on the girls. Sully. Amb. Lauren. But Flynn provides us with many reasons to contemplate if the the boys are so nice here. We all play a role in gender politics and Flynn’s searing latest reminds us that none of us are truly innocent.
