Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Rebecca, guardian to 13-year-old Callie, has just learned that Callie has bullied Robyn, a girl from school. Certain that Callie would never do such a thing, Callie's friends stand up for her, and the accusation goes nowhere. When Callie herself becomes the target of relentless bullying, it appears to Rebecca that Robyn turned the tables and has become the bully. Rebecca, treading on very unfamiliar ground, is Callie's guardian because her best friend Joyce was killed in an automobile accident. As the first narrator, Rebecca relates the events in Callie's life while seeking to understand how to handle it based on her own childhood relationships with Joyce. Callie doesn't know the real story behind her mother's accident, or of her father's subsequent suicide. This leaves the girl unsure of who she is and whether or not she might become like the imaginary people she believes they were. Teens' interest will pick up when Callie tells her story. Readers need both perspectives in order to understand how Rebecca, through her struggles to understand, keeps missing clues to what is really going on. Fearing for Robyn's life as much as for Callie, Rebecca is determined to make everything all right, but sometimes, others intervene to make decisions for themselves. Teenage friendships, loyalty, and when to stand one's ground is at the heart of this story. VERDICT The race to the suspenseful end will keep readers reading long into the night; the conclusion will inspire much thought.—Connie Williams, Petaluma High School, CA


“‘Do you know your children?’ Thus begins Hyacinth Girls, a book with razor-sharp teeth, a pumping heart, and wide-open eyes; a plunge into the secret, murky waters between the bullies and the bullied. In her debut, Lauren Frankel conjures up real girlhood, the kind you don't read about in storybooks: complicated, troubling, and true.”
—Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet
“Suspenseful and highly thought-provoking, Hyacinth Girls deftly illuminates the potentially harrowing landscape of teenage friendships while lending fresh perspective to the complex issue of bullying.”
—Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia

“Quite the twisty tale.” —New York Daily News

“Disconcerting and suspenseful, Frankel’s debut offers insights into the pressures of adolescence, the cruelty of society—and how little we know our children.”—People
