In the near future at a girls-only private high school isolated in the Colorado mountains, Mena and her classmates--under the watchful eyes of their Guardian, professors, and analyst--are trained to be beautiful and obedient for their sponsors and investors.
The girls of Innovations Academy are beautiful and well-behaved, learning learn to be the best society has to offer. Under the watchful gaze of their Guardians they are obedient young ladies, free from arrogance, defiance, or opinions... until Mena starts to realize that their carefully controlled existence may not be quite as it appears. Uncovering the dark secrets of what's actually happening-- and who they really are-- the girls of Innovations will find out what they are truly capable of.

Girls With Sharp Sticks sets its focus on a girl attending a school made for perfection. Along with her friends, she questions the life around her and what normalcy truly is. This is a great thriller with a surprise twist that will suck you right into the story!

This is a powerful and impactful read for lovers of dystopian thrillers. An intruiging plot, well-developed characters and the right amount of suspensful moments will have you on the edge of your seat! You'll be left questioning what it means to be human...I highly reccomend it!

A powerful and engaging read that examines the casual and powerful structural sexism that lives in everyday society and poisons our world, told from the point of view of a fierce, curious and passionate heroine. Surrounded by a group of friends whose love runs deeper than science can understand, the girls battle for their freedom against oppression, as well as each other. Read it in one sitting, because it was that damn good.

Read this book! Once I read the first page I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. It is disturbing and eerie in a way that makes you so worried for Mena and her friends that you become so connected to them. I can’t wait for Girls With Razor Hearts.
