    I am so mad at myself for putting this off for so long because I FUCKING LOVED THIS. WOW.

  • Jeff Zentner

    I am deeply fortunate to have gotten to read this as a manuscript.

    HELLO GIRLS is a razor-sharp union of sidesplitting dark comedy, fierce feminism, and poignant friendship, paced like an Alfa-Romeo at full throttle, and written in gleaming, perfect, gutpunch sentences.

    One of the sharpest, funniest, and most perfectly written books I’ve ever read. This story of two best friends on the lam will have you alternating between rolling with laughter and picking your jaw up off the floor in

    Having read and loved books by both Cavallaro and Henry, I went into

    fully expecting to enjoy it, and it did not disappoint. It’s a story of unlikely friendships, revenge, road trips, rebelling against the patriarchy, and ruthless women. (So, pretty much all my favorite things.)

    The plot of this book is nothing revolutionary– it’s a YA road trip powered by revenge, of which I’ve read several– but what makes

    shine, in my eyes, is our two main characters. Winona and Lucille represent two of the myriad ways society attempts to pin women down, to keep them quiet, to force them into prescribed roles, to trap them. The two come from vastly different circumstances, but they’re united in their desire for more. They want better for themselves, and they’re not afraid to take matters into their own hands to get it. At its heart,

    is a story of friendship, the kind of pure friendship that means you would do anything for the other person. (There are also heavy hints that their friendship has the potential to bloom into a romantic relationship, but there’s no confirmation of this, nor is there any explicit queer rep in the book.)

    It’s this friendship that drives the plot of

    . It’s your classic running-from-the-law-and-their-past road trip journey– complete with robberies, murders, slights of hand, and more!– but Lucille and Winona’s friendship is the driving force behind it all. The beautiful friendship dynamic provided an excellent reprieve from the often-dark subject matter. I wouldn’t say this is the most suspenseful story I’ve ever read, but it kept me on the edge of my seat enough that I never wanted to stop reading. This is absolutely one of those books to devour in one sitting.

    I would be remiss not to mention that this book deals with some pretty heavy subject matter, so please use caution and check the content warnings before going in. The two girls are fleeing Winona’s abusive local-celebrity father, Lucille’s manipulative and thieving drug-dealer brother, and in general, the expectations that society, especially men, places upon young women (namely the expectation to follow orders, stay silent and docile, and take whatever is dealt to you by people in positions of power). Though Winona and Lucille don’t necessarily deal with their trauma in healthy ways in this book, the authors never sensationalized or trivialized it, which I really appreciated.

    often touches on the pervasiveness of misogyny, and it shows up on pretty much every step of Winona and Lucille’s journey. It’s a book that makes explicitly clear something we already know– men are trash. Anyone who knows me knows I loved this theme, lol.

    And I’ll be vague to avoid spoilers, but though a bit predictable, I will say that I enjoyed the ending– although I think it’s going to be a polarizing one. Overall, I thought

    was a fun ride from beginning to end, with the added bonus of lovable-but-flawed characters and a pleasantly surprising undercurrent of friendship throughout. It’s the perfect book to savor during these last few weeks of summer.

    Two best friends from Michigan go on a road trip of empowerment in their stolen convertible. WAS THIS NOVEL WRITTEN *JUST* FOR ME? BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT WAS.

    I went into this with high hopes.

    But I guess,,,,,,,,,I was expecting something more emotionally devastating?

    I showed up almost entirely for the friendship; sadly, though, I never felt it. I was told “these two are friends” instead of *FEELIN’* the relations

    Two best friends from Michigan go on a road trip of empowerment in their stolen convertible. WAS THIS NOVEL WRITTEN *JUST* FOR ME? BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT WAS.

    I went into this with high hopes.

    But I guess,,,,,,,,,I was expecting something more emotionally devastating?

    I showed up almost entirely for the friendship; sadly, though, I never felt it. I was told “these two are friends” instead of *FEELIN’* the relationship develop. There were roughly three moments where I was THERE with them????? But I mostly just wanted the book to end.

    Full disclosure, when I read this book I was v jaded about relationships. Like, human bonding of all kind. I was ready to live as a recluse, hate sunshine, and live out my remaining years with nothing but my trusty eyeliner + video games. IT WAS NOT A GOOD PLACE, FRIENDS.

    So, that may have affected my review in a tiny way. But you know what, I still enjoyed this book

    and it was still fun

    Winona is the more timid, sweet, pretty sprinkle. Her dad Stormy is a beloved weatherman & the entire state of Michigan worships him.

    But he’s also abusive, and Winona feels like no one would believe their precious Stormy could hurt his daughter. It was v sad and desperate and I wanted to punch Stormy in the face.

    I LOVE LUCILLE!!!! She’s a badass & is constantly dealing with her drug-dealing big brother. I felt like she’s the stronger component of the Winona/Lucille friendship? She’s witty, tired of being trash, and tired of everyone belittling her. I loved her. I’ve never seen

    but I still feel like Lucille fulfills the *tired of the patriarchy, bad bitch* prophesy.

    This story is about women who are tired of being treated like kids. Who have been abused by men and are just DONE. I loved this theme and supported it 100%.

    I didn’t get enough development; I would have rather the book been about them becoming friends, rather than: “They are friends. Behold! Shiny road trip!”

    + even though I need platonic rep, this book could've been gay & I wouldn't have been disappointed c: c: c:

    Video review -

    This was such a quick read but unfortunately it wasn’t really for me. I was totally engrossed in the story because I had no clue where it was going but then when I got to probably 70% of the way through, I just started losing interest. I was so far in that I sped through the rest of it so I could finish.
