Publisher's Summary

Life has never been easy for the three Campbell sisters. Jess, Courtney, and Dani live on a remote ranch in Western Canada where they work hard and try to stay out of the way of their father's fists. One night a fight gets out of hand, and the sisters are forced to go on the run, only to get caught in an even worse nightmare when their truck breaks down in a small town. Events spiral out of control, and a chance encounter with the wrong people leaves them in a horrific and desperate situation. They are left with no choice but to change their names and create new lives.
Eighteen years later they are still trying to forget what happened that summer when one of the sisters goes missing, and they are pulled back into their past. But this time there's nowhere left to run.
As much a thriller as it is a deep exploration of the bonds among sisters, Those Girls is an unforgettable portrait of desperation, loyalty, and evil.

Not good, not good at all

Do you remember being a kid and watching Scooby Doo and asking "Why are they doing that don't they know the bad guy is going to get them?"

This book is exactly as frustrating as an episode of Scooby-Doo. The characters keep doing things that make you wonder "Why are they doing that?"

The three sisters also have about as much complexity and dimension as Shaggy and Scoobs only, and this the really unforgivable part, it also includes the repeated rape and torture of teenaged girls. Nice reading. Such a waste of time and it's time you will never get back!

The Past Is Never Really Past

A number of reviewers (on other sites so far) have been critical of Part 2 of the book, which is narrated by Jamie's daughter. But I find Part 2 to raise more interesting questions than Part 1 (which could stand on its own as an excellent suspense thriller novella).

What do you tell your teenager about your horrible past and her existence? I think many parents would do what Jamie did and invent a plausible lie. But when her daughter finds out, she feels betrayed and then sets out on a really stupid journey and gets herself into trouble.

But what I wanted to ask to 17-year-old Skylar is "what do think you mother should have told you and when?" When you were three? six? 15? When should a child be told that her father is a violent rapist? When should a mother share her worse nightmares with her child?

In each of the three books by Chevy Stevens I have read, she has done an excellent job of weaving together past and present, showing vividly how one event can change the entire course of your life and reverberate through it forever.
