Summary

Bloomsbury presents The Good Girls by Sonia Faleiro, read by Sonia Faleiro. 

A masterly and agenda-setting inquest into how the deaths of two teenage girls shone a light into the darkest corners of a nation. 

Katra Sadatgani. A tiny village in western Uttar Pradesh. A community bounded by tradition and custom; where young women are watched closely, and know what is expected of them. 

It was an ordinary night when two girls, Padma and Lalli, went missing. The next day, their bodies were found - hanging in the orchard, their clothes muddied. 

In the ensuing months, the investigation into their deaths would implode everything that their small community held to be true, and instigated a national conversation about sex, honour and violence. 

The Good Girls returns to the scene of Padma and Lalli’s short lives and shocking deaths, daring to ask: what is the human cost of shame?
