Seemingly padded for length by flipping between the two sisters, only one of which propels the plot forward, Pretty Girls is an otherwise harrowing thriller about an inability to let go of the past and how little we know the people we love.

A bit too gruesome for me and a lot of different details to keep track of. That being said, it was captivating and got right into it with new additions being included each page, which built up into a really good story. Obvi the privileged white woman nonsense about feminism annoy me
Spoiler (and the fact that claire goes out with Nolan, a grade A asshole who was torturing her after the death of her husband.
only a ✋🏻woman would think of that to be an even semi decent addition to the novel.) but I still ate it up so Ms. slaughter will get another read out of me. Interesting and sad. The gore went far however, I do not believe it added enough to the book to be so pivotal during almost every page. I did enjoy this read and I’m better for it

This was dark and brutal, but I could not put it down.

Very, very gory. Check trigger warnings. I thought it was kind of predictable but I loved the sister relationship.
