About this deal

Although Kate makes fast friends with a trio of fellow moms, their daughters take an instant dislike to Alex, who attempts to document their bullying in her video diary. She hasn’t been herself since her dad’s death in a car accident when she was driving, and her biggest relief is her longtime love of tennis. ABOUT 'LOVELY GIRLS': After the sudden death of her husband, Kate Turner is looking for a fresh start for herself and her teenage daughter, Alex. Our vision is fast-paced, forward-thinking and fashion-centered at its core, and all of our products reflect these ideals. We have Kate and her daughter Alex who move to Shoreham, FL: A beach town to start their lives over after losing her husband/dad in a auto accident.

If you're looking for a quick, beach type read, definitely consider giving Lovely Girls a go in 2023.

Margot Hunt is the USA Today bestselling author of Best Friends Forever , For Better and Worse , and The Last Affair . Yet things quickly start to go wrong as Alex immediately finds herself on the wrong side of the mean girl clique at school, whilst her mother has befriended their mothers. Best Friends Forever is a page-turner of a read, delving into the often fraught world of female friendships and the wreckage left behind when they implode. In Florida, Alex makes instant enemies of three popular girls who catch her filming them on her phone for her video diary, which is part of her therapy. While Kate is fast to make friends Alex struggles to be accepted, in fact, the queen bee's of the school are down right hostile to her.

Margot Hunt is the author of LOVELY GIRLS, THE LAST AFFAIR, FOR BETTER AND WORSE and BEST FRIENDS FOREVER. The next day, Gina lectures Willie and Tommy about men's unrealistic expectations of women set by supermodels and pornography. She arrived on the waves in a half shell saying something about the size of her arsehole) but Lovely Girls falls into a similar pitfall. The atmosphere of the novel, set mostly on this wild Greek island, echoes strongly the classical tragedies of Greece.It's fairly mindless reading, but was enjoyable nonetheless and explores the mean girl trope in both adults and teenagers well. Best Friends Forever ] constantly pushes forward, asking readers to question every conclusion and warning them to never completely trust anyone. It opens up with a dead body and then we hear the story from Kate's point of view and Alex's video diary.

The main reason why I gave this 4 stars is that the book's ending came out of nowhere and didn't really feel realistic. As small-town gossip weaves a harrowing web of jealousy, deceit, and betrayal, Kate and Alex discover that whether you’re in or out, the status quo can turn on you deadly fast. While the scenarios of bullying are specific her and her circumstances, it easily brought me back to the days when I was in high school and being bullied. Additional minor roles were played by Kristen Rossmore as Steve and Darian's daughter Kristen; Camille D'Ambrose as Sharon's mother; Martin Ruben as Jan's restaurant boss Chip; Allison Levine as a waitress; Earl R. As little women, and through their teen years, they were fed fairy tales, stories and images full of the idealized woman; beautiful, sweet, passive, lovely.

We try to give our girls a happy life here on the farm, feeding them the very best food, free to roam safely in our Cotswold Farm. The song’s much-loved, but indicative of how often we overlook dated concepts around what’s expected of women because of this bigotry wrapped in a pretty, lovely bow. It also doesn’t help that Alex is hiding the bullying that she is enduring-afraid that if her mom interferes-it will only make things worse.

Three estranged sisters reconnect in their Louisiana hometown to face an unresolved past in a heartfelt novel about family, grief, secrets, and forgiveness. In this gripping novel about obsession, control, and self-preservation, a woman desperate to provide a new life for her sister enters a compromising arrangement with an entitled tech billionaire. But Kate soon finds a different side of the town: infinity pools, private tennis courts, exclusive boutiques. I was pretty confident this would be a three star read until the last chapter and the way it ended makes me want to bump it up a half star.Alex quickly runs afoul of the mean girls in town (and their mothers) and things go from bad to worse.
