Sisters. Strangers. Survivors. More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia's teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that's cruelly ripped open when Claire's husband is killed.

The sisters overcoming their older sister's murderers

Has Pretty Girls turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was disgusted by the book. At no point in the written overview or audible sound preview was there any suggestion of this being a book about a sadistic group of rapists and murderers.
