Oh my goodness! I can’t rave about this book more! This book is so relevant to how I’m feeling these days during quarantine. I’m thinking I may need to build a compound of my own and invite all my favorite people to help run it. We’ll each help build a community together! We’ll do some gardening, baking/cooking, fitness training, survival training, and tend to a myriad of animals raised for producing all the goods we’ll need. Let’s go off the beaten path together!
Honey has always taken care of her younger sister’s as they’ve moved around from one state to another. When she finds her younger sister Birdie, the rebel, caught up in something dangerous she starts to wonder if the compound they’ve lived on with their mother for the past year may not be what it seems.
Honey and her sisters start to question everything after their friend gets sent away for his part in potentially exposing the community to the outside world and things start to get even more dangerous with every question answered. In the end it’ll take three outsiders to help put the final pieces together.
Demetra did an amazing job of describing life living on the compound. After reading this one I think I’ll need to improve my survival skills and make sure I’ve got my EDC (Every Day Carry) bag ready to go at all times.
The Juniper sisters in LAST GIRLS don’t go anywhere without a backpack (what they call an EDC: Every Day Carry) and they take great pride in their artwork. Honey paints, Birdie draws comics, and Blue uses embroidery to fancy up her clothes (when she’s not spending time with her beloved falcon, Achilles). To honor the sisters’ talents, I’ll be sending one lucky winner some artistic inspiration by offering up a fabulous pre-order Grand Prize. But don’t worry, everyone who orders will receive a gift with purchase. And, as a bonus, I’m including a 2nd prize that holds a special place in my author heart.
