A Better Bad Idea (2021)
Laurie DeVore
"A Better Bad Idea is an anthem sung by angry girls trapped in small towns. Their song is an accounting of narrow minds and brutal fists and harms inflicted and violence to come, swelling to a crescendo that demands more than a tired recital of right and wrong. Devore invites us, unflinching, into the gray."

The Falling Girls (2021)
Hayley Krischer
"With The Falling Girls, Hayley Krischer has woven a suspenseful, poignant, and tangled web of friendships set against the electric backdrop of high school cheer. Like teen girlhood itself, the intensity of these relationships is sometimes beautiful, sometimes dark. Like the best thrillers, it is ultimately deadly."
