I say this because I know you, Dex, and I know how you think. I'm going to tell you a story, and this time, it will be the truth.

The two girls bring their combined wills to bear on the community in which they live and think they are invulnerable.

From the bestselling author of Girl Code, Cara Alwill Leyba delivers Girl on Fire -the long-awaited follow up fans have been waiting for. The self-publishing queen started this conversation four years ago with Girl Code, her ode to women and their power, a book so successful that it has been translated in seven languages and continues to make a major impact on the world. Girl On Fire builds on this concept and shows you how to blaze your own trail immediately. You don't need permission from anyone to live fearlessly and start living your dream. As an early voice in the female-driven movement, Cara continues to be a leader in the space, liberating women to trust their intuition and create their own opportunities.

From the author: Who would you be if you stopped following *their* rules? What would you create if you create if you had nothing holding you back? Now that women entrepreneurs are banding together in sisterhood and realizing the importance of

«Ein großer Erzähler.» (Der Spiegel) Im Vorstadthaus der Familie Lisbon leben fünf schöne Töchter: die gescheite Therese, die pingelige Mary, die asketische Bonnie, die scharfe Lux und die blasse, lammfromme Cecilia. Als sich die jüngste von ihnen aus dem Fenster stürzt, beginnt das «Jahr der Selbstmorde», das alle Beteiligten und Beobachter für immer verändern wird. Schaurig-ironisch und zärtlich zugleich zeichnet der Pulitzer-Preisträger das Porträt einer Jugend, die ihre Unschuld verloren hat. «Sein bestes Buch.» (Stern) «Es gibt nur wenige zeitgenössische Autoren, die so brillant, so präzise und unerbittlich schreiben können wie dieser US-Schriftsteller.» (Financial Times Deutschland) «Ein „Fänger im Roggen» unserer Zeit. » (The Observer)

Die Sprache glüht.« Stephen King »Absolut hypnotisierend.« Gillian Flynn Vor einem Jahr ist im Park des traditionsreichen Mädcheninternats St. Kilda der sechzehnjährige Chris Harper erschlagen worden.
