Life & Style

All Girls by Emily Layden


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.
