Rx: “The Furies”

Prescribed by: Debut author, Katie Lowe

Prescribed for: Fans of Emma Cline’s “The Girls,” and TV shows like “Charmed” and “The Craft.”

Side Effects: Goosebumps and hair standing up on your neck.

Directions:  This is a well-written, darkly crafted tale of a private school with a mysterious past, four misfit teenage girls, and a circle of friendship that is both provocative and dangerous.  Is the violence surrounding them a byproduct of their own doing and their obsession with witchcraft?

Violet is a bright, troubled young woman who is desperate to make friends.  When she starts at a new school, she is immediately drawn to three other girls with secrets of their own.  The foursome are invited to join a special class with a mysterious instructor, meeting in the clock-tower on campus.  While this inner circle initially makes Violet feel euphoric, she soon finds the circle constricting and her friendships toxic.  Just how far these four girls will go to build each other up (or take each other down) is the real question.

“…in equal measure, the brutal power of female friendship, of those secrets women share between themselves, in those moments men are too blind to see.” Annabel, “The Furies”

Special Instructions: A witch’s brew seems apropos, as does something with sugar and spice.
