The Grimrose Girls

This book starts at an exclusive boarding school where the girls are grieving the loss of a classmate.

They didn’t think their friend would take her own life and wanted to find out the truth. As they investigated they uncovered some interesting facts about the school. This may not be the first time this happened.

I included the synopsis cause I don’t want to give anything away but this was a fun one I love retellings and it was like Descendants meets Pretty Little Liars. Also, the ending really makes me want to pick up Book #2.

✨About the book:
Once Upon a Time meets Pretty little liars.

Four troubled friends, One murdered girl… and a dark fate that may leave them all doomed.

After the mysterious death of their best friend, Ella, Yuki, and Rory are the talk of their elite school, Grimrose Académie. The police ruled it a suicide, but the trio are determined to find out what really happened.

When Nani Eszes arrives as their newest roommate, it sets into motion a series of events they couldn’t have imagined. As the girls retrace their friend’s last steps, they uncover dark secrets about themselves and their destinies, discovering they’re all cursed to repeat the brutal and gruesome endings to their stories until they can break the cycle.

This contemporary take on classic fairytales reimagines heroines as friends attending the same school. While investigating the murder of their best friend, they uncover connections to their ancient fairytale curses and attempt to forge their own fate before it’s too late.

✨It was interesting taking these classic fairy tales but reimagining them with transgender, asexual, lesbian rep in it. They make more sense to me that way, lame patriarchy. They actually read the actual summaries of the real HCA stories which are horrible and were created to scare the crap out of young women to get them to stay home and not go out, cause men are evil and scary?

Thank you @sourcebooksfire and @netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
