Hell Is A Teenage Girl
A new collection of gothic tales ranging from the magical to the terrifying, and from the personal to the downright nasty.
G irls that decide to be bad one summer end up destroying their friendship and their innocence; teenagers impregnated by octopuses; kids that decide to destroy what they don’t understand; a summer plagued by insects due to contamination, or perhaps witchcraft; flying nuns; far-right terrorist attacks; people hit by trains; a bigoted father that turns girls into monsters; weavers of women’s destinies; authors possessed by their typewriters; children that plan the perfect crime; friendships that end in disgrace; girls robbed of their identities; boys devoured by their own pig-headedness; anorexia and bulimia; Kurt Cobain, Kate Moss and Drew Barrymore.
A world of teens and children on the brink of adulthood. Fear, confusion, adventure and death reign in this thrilling throwback to the 80s and 90s.
