Thelma and Louise gets remade in this powerful, darkly funny teen novel from acclaimed authors Brittany Cavallaro and Emily Henry. Two teenage girls who have had enough of the controlling men in their lives take their rage on the road to make a new life for themselves. Winona has been starving for life in the seemingly perfect home that she shares with her seemingly perfect father, celebrity weatherman Stormy Olsen. No one knows that he locks the pantry door to control her eating and leaves bruises where no one can see them. Lucille has been suffocating beneath the needs of her mother and her drug-dealing brother, wondering if thereA??s more out there for her than disappearing waitress tips and a lifetime of barely getting by. One harrowing night, Winona and Lucille realize they canA??t wait until graduation to start their new lives. They need out. Now. One hour later, theyA??re armed with a plan that will take them from their small Michigan town to Chicago. All they need is three grand, fast. And really, a stolen convertible canA??t hurt.Chased by the oppression, toxicity, and powerlessness that has held them down, Winona and Lucille must reclaim their strength if they are going to make their daring escapeA??and get away with it.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Julia Whelan's versatility and warmth capture the courage and desperation of a daring cross-country escapade. Best friends Winona and Lucille have carefully planned their lives after graduation; they intend to escape from their abusive homes. When things go awry, they spring into action to preserve their future happiness. Whelan's pacing heightens the urgency as the young women flee, stealing a car and obtaining funds in risky ways while unsavory figures from their past race to catch them. Whelan's masterful delivery illuminates significant moments and adds levity when the girls do bits together. Her characterizations are well matched to a large cast with conflicting motives that ranges from predators and con artists to long-lost relatives. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
