A BUSTLE, REFINERY29, COSMOPOLITAN, BUZZFEED AND MARIE CLAIRE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2021 A BEST BOOK OF JANUARY 2021 ON POPSUGAR, E! ONLINE, BOOK RIOT, BITCH MEDIA, LGBTQREADS, AND CULTURESS "A captivating, explosive, and satisfyingly queer thriller." --Kirkus, starred review An arrestingly incisive narrative . . . fiercely captivating and impressively characterized, this tightly plotted thriller is engrossing from start to finish. --Booklist, starred review Not since Veronica Mars have hardscrabble swagger, enormous grief and teenage noir been combined into such a satisfying piece of storytelling. The Girls I've Been is a heart-wrenching, perfectly paced, cinematic thriller . . . a romance, a tragedy and a story about reclaiming agency and power. It is a triumph. --Bookpage, starred review This action-packed story sizzles with suspense . . . In this thriller, characters prove that they can rely on their strength, friendship, and desire to be the confident and caring people they know themselves to be. --School Library Journal

Sharpe (Barbed Wire Heart) focuses as much on [Nora's] trauma--and the systems of power that enable and excuse abuse--as on mystery and heart-pounding action . . . the small, complex cast of characters and emotional core make this a poignant thriller. --Publishers Weekly The tension is absolutely nailbiting. --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "A non-stop thrill ride... This book is so INTENSE. It jumps back and forth from the robbery in progress to Nora's earlier life with her mother, a con woman married to a dangerous man. It's so well done, extremely cinematic." --Book Riot "If you're looking for a queer YA contemporary book with complex characters, loads of action to keep you reading WAY past your bedtime -- and a story so well written I might have shed a tear over it -- you need to read The Girls I've Been by Tess Sharpe. It will keep you captivated until the last page." --Culturess
