Audible Editor Reviews

Fifteen-year-old Zoe has spent her childhood moving among the small towns of British Columbia, and she doesn't have high hopes for life in the latest one, Abbotsford. Sure enough, the first person she encounters is Beck, the leader of a local girl gang who seems determined to make the lives of other girls a living hell. Zoe ends up initiated in the gang against her better judgment, and things get more harrowing from there. The wise-beyond-her-years Zoe is a heroine to root for, and the book is populated by a number of strong characters who stand out against their bleak backdrop. Performer Edwina Wren's sweet voice and gentle accent are well suited to this sad but ultimately realistic story.

Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Zoe is new in town. The first person she meets is Beck, the leader of The Beckoners - with this ruthless gang of girls 'it doesn't matter if you beckon or not, they come calling when they want.'

Out of fear and curiosity, Zoe is initiated but then can't escape their intimidation. She gets help from unlikely sources, but is there time to help the tormented April aka Dog?

The Beckoners is a riveting, award-winning story about friendship and the importance of belonging. No teenager will be able to put it down.
