Bad Girls Never Say Die is an awesome gender-swap retelling of the book The Outsiders by SE Hinton (or the amazing film starring all the teen heartthrobs of the time). I'd love to see the film version of this one. It takes some guts to create a worthy retelling of a much-loved classic book but i think the author Jennifer Mathieu did a fantastic job.
the character development was detailed and believable. the story was also believable with just the right amount of feminism, and i'll say it, using the author's other published title, "MOXIE". this may take place in the 1960's but the trials the main character Evie, and the other girls, go through unfortunately remain timeless into the 2020's. These girls are facing constant aggressions in all aspects of their lives.
i look forward to reading more books by this author, this one was fantastic.
