Life & Style

All Girls by Emily Layden

1

I’ll read any book set in the fascinating and insular world of boarding schools, but this one is special. Author Emily Layden melds the already fraught territory of adolescent girlhood with a contemporary #MeToo thread that unfolds through the accounts of several students. Set in Connecticut, this story feels as real as something you might have read about in the weekly newspaper; I totally lost myself in the lives of these vividly drawn characters.
