On the second day of YA book recommendations, I’m recommending a page-turning thriller!
You’re going to want to pick up a copy of The Girls I’ve Been right away! This twisty, high-stakes thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved how the timeline alternated between the present bank robbery and Nora’s childhood with her con artist mother—which unfolded the story in an interesting way. Nora’s voice is strong and her dialogue is entertaining as she finds a way to get herself and her friends out of a hostage situation alive. Read if you love: found families, twisty thrillers, fast-paced chapters, complex characters, multiple timelines, and queer romance.
Find the book: Goodreads, Bookshop, IndieBound, Barnes & Noble, Amazon
