  • The Girls' Revenge

    Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

    Paperback (Yearling, Sept. 7, 1999)
    This fourth book about the Hatford brothers and the Malloy sisters begins shortly before Christmas, three months after the Malloys move to Buckman, WV. As the holiday season approaches, the boys and girls continue to play pranks on one another and begin to learn the consequences of their actions. Caroline Malloy and Wally Hatford are partners for their fourth-grade December project and discover that, instead of annoying one another, they need to learn how to work together in order to receive a passing grade. Told in their alternating viewpoints, the story moves quickly, continuing the mischief and humor of the previous novels. Readers will be especially taken with precocious and dramatic Caroline, who will stop at nothing for revenge. While it is not necessary to read the first three books, fans of the series will enjoy references to the characters' past pranks and will delight in the promise of future additions to this ongoing battle between these rivals.

  • The Farm Girls' Revenge

    Roberta Seiwert Lampe, Shawna Windom, Tate Publishing

    Audible Audiobook (Tate Publishing, May 19, 2011)
    In the early 1900s, young farm boys would often come calling upon and courting the farm girls. Sometimes the girls were especially enamored by the young man's attentions. But sometimes, the young ladies of the fellow's dreams did not share his feelings. Such is the story of the sisters in The Farm Girls' Revenge, who dreamed up various ways to discourage their attentive neighbor boys. Gertrude and Mary lived in Kansas in the early 1900s. Being the attractive young women they were, they often attracted the attention of the local farm boys, though some of these boys were less than desirable. Author Roberta Seiwert Lampe presents the story of how Gertrude and Mary, on more than one occasion, introduce these boys to The Farm Girls' Revenge. From driving their wagon into the farm pond to covering their seats in molasses, these girls always have the upper hand.

At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence.Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize • Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle John Leonard Award • Shortlisted for The Center for Fiction First Novel Prize • The New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice • Emma Cline—One of Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists Praise for The Girls “Spellbinding . . . a seductive and arresting coming-of-age story.”—The New York Times Book Review “Extraordinary . . .
