Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up—Sasha Stone is a Midwestern "good girl": a smart, college-bound band geek with a preppy boyfriend and a close circle of friends. After a few mysterious texts and personal memories she doesn't feel are her own, she finds a photograph uncovering a past she didn't know existed: she was a twin sister. With a strained family life, Sasha discovers more about her twin through an unlikely source: her twin, or rather, the heart of her twin. Through a process called fetal reabsorption, Sasha's heart is really her twin's. Shanna, who is not a good girl, is trying to communicate with Sasha, turning her world upside down and leading into a series of plot twists and turns, and a downward spiral from her perfect high school life. Shanna is craving the life she never had—desiring bad boy Isaac, sex, and life in the fast lane— which causes Sasha's grades to plummet, her friends and boyfriend to become distant, and worst of all, her loss of the first chair in band. More character development of "Good Sasha" would make for a better contrast in personalities, as well as make the later claims of manipulation against Sasha stronger; however, it is an interesting read which addresses family issues and mental health, while blending the elements of a psychological thriller. VERDICT Recommended for older teens and fans of disturbing yet satisfying plot twists.—Doneanne Soult, Westampton Middle School, NJ


“Rich imagery and a ruthless protagonist propel the novel forward to its shocking, ominous conclusion.” (Booklist)

“...[A]n interesting read which addresses family issues and mental health, while blending the elements of a psychological thriller. Recommended for older teens and fans of disturbing yet satisfying plot twists.” (School Library Journal)

“This psychological thriller offers shivers similar to Larbalestier’s My Sister Rosa, and the final scene will leave readers wondering if they’ve been duped into sympathy or if more is required.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

Praise for the FEMALE OF THE SPECIES: “McGinnis explores how one teen uses violence for justice in this gripping story that should be read and discussed by teens, as well as those who work with them.” (Booklist (starred review))

“Each word has been specifically chosen, each character superbly and humanly sculpted, the plot line masterfully completed. To say more would be to dilute the experience. McGinnis plays with the readers and they are at her mercy.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review))

“McGinnis gracefully avoids the pitfalls of creating a teenage vigilante, instead maintaining a sense of piercing realism. Alex is a pained girl in dangerous free fall, whose fierce independence is challenged by newfound friendships, even love, though neither may be enough to stave off the inevitable.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“All three teens are haunted by the memory of Anna’s murder, and Alex’s inclination to both considering and exacting revenge with cruel efficiency leads them all inexorably to an explosive, terrible finale. An unflinching look at rape culture and its repercussions.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“This is an astoundingly dark but beautifully written tragedy. Sexual abuse and assault are treated with sensitivity here but also portrayed with the necessary weight and power, and the dangerous repercussions of poor self-esteem, limiting social expectations, and secret-keeping are discussed openly and frankly.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“[I]t’s raw. Not “raw for YA.” Real-deal raw. And violent. And unforgettable. McGinnis explores both and she goes there in a way no one really has before in YA. This is Kill Bill in high school, but with more nuance, bolder choices and a true female perspective.” (The Globe and Mail)

“Your heart may still be pounding after you’ve finished this book. It is uncannily well timed to our current political situation...McGinnis, who dedicates her book to ‘the victims,’ examines this dichotomy of hope and violence, love and hate, with dexterity and grace.” (New York Times Book Review)
