Summary

A darkly intoxicating novel of female friendship and obsession, perfect for fans of My Dark Vanessa, The Girls and The Virgin Suicides

Nice girls can do bad things....

When Ambrosia first arrives at prestigious college Wesleyan, she’s desperate to fit in. But Amb struggles to navigate the rules of this strange, elite world, filled with privileged ‘nice’ young women - until she meets the charismatic but troubled Sully, with whom she forms an obsessive friendship. 

Intoxicated by Sully’s charm and determined to impress her, Amb finds herself drawn deep into her new best friend’s dangerous manipulations. But if she wants to play Sully at her own game, Amb has no idea just how devastating the consequences will be.... 

Deeply unsettling and compulsive, The Girls Are All So Nice Here is a gripping exploration of the brutal lengths girls will go to, to take what they think they are owed.

Not what I expected

The story is interesting to a certain degree but I expected more on life in Radcliffe. Instead it focuses on the two girls relationships which tends to become tedious towards the end.

Great Story

I really enjoyed this book and thought it was well read. It kept me guessing until the end.
