◎亞馬遜網路書店讀者四顆星推薦

有任何跡象暗示即將發生的事件嗎?又或者,她過於沉醉在那群女孩之中,而沒有發現,她的人生即將永遠被改變?

1960年代末期的北加州,思慮深刻卻孤獨的青少女Evie Boyd,渴望獲得注目。她在公園裡看見一群女孩,立刻受她們狂放不羈的態度所吸引:隨性的穿著、未經梳理隨處飄逸的長髮,以及一絲放縱的危險氣息。

Evie很快被充滿魅力的女孩Suzanne吸引,隨即也被吸收入惡名昭彰的異教團體中,中心人物是同樣充滿吸引力的Russell。他們廣闊的牧場藏身於山中,荒蕪而詭異,在Evie眼裡,卻是充滿異國色彩又刺激的地方。她在以Russel為首的團體裡越陷越深,渴望得到他的認同,對於Suzanne的迷戀則日漸增長。她與母親相處的時間漸漸減少,沒有察覺自己正一步步走向無法想像的暴力之中……

Emma Cline精采的首部小說,彷彿擁有魔力般,以精準的描述與心理層面的深入探討,描繪令人難忘的女孩群像,以及她們變成了什麼樣的女人。喜愛傑佛瑞.尤金尼德斯(Jeffrey Eugenides)的《少女死亡日記》(The Virgin Suicides)與珍妮佛.伊根(Jennifer Egan)的《時間裡的癡人》(A Visit from the Goon Squad)的讀者,不能錯過這本驚艷之作。


California. The summer of 1969. In the dying days of a floundering counter-culture a young girl is unwittingly caught up in unthinkable violence, and a decision made at this moment, on the cusp of adulthood, will shape her life..."This book will break your heart and blow your mind." (Lena Dunham). Evie Boyd is desperate to be noticed. In the summer of 1969, empty days stretch out under the California sun. The smell of honeysuckle thickens the air and the sidewalks radiate heat. Until she sees them. The snatch of cold laughter. Hair, long and uncombed. Dirty dresses skimming the tops of thighs. Cheap rings like a second set of knuckles. The girls. And at the centre, Russell. Russell and the ranch, down a long dirt track and deep in the hills. Incense and clumsily strummed chords. Rumours of sex, frenzied gatherings, teen runaways. Was there a warning, a sign of things to come? Or is Evie already too enthralled by the girls to see that her life is about to be changed forever?
