Author: Beth Neff

Sarah, Jenna, Lauren, and Cassie are four wounded souls lucky enough to be assigned work on an organic farm rather than be left in juvenile detention. One very unhappy girl with an overwhelming sense of middle-class entitlement (this is the month for wanting to bitch-slap imaginary people) realizes the women running the farm are lesbians, and sets out to destroy both the women and the program. This evil girl dupes the others into being her unwilling partners in tearing down the very thing that is saving them. Unpleasant and surprising consequences abound for all, and we are left thinking of The Children’s Hour. This startling debut novel by Beth Neff has this reader waiting for her next book.
