Different for Girls(2018)
The Babysitter's Code / Hardly Knew Her
A collection of stories by Laura Lippman
Laura Lippman has long been fascinated by the dangerous vulnerability of teenage girls. In "The Babysitter's Code" - the inspiration for her critically acclaimed novel, To the Power of Three - an adolescent girl decides to take a gun to school. In "Hardly Knew Her," Lippman's homage to Carson McCullers' TheMember of the Wedding, a tomboy learns that growing up means learning how to lie and deceive. And in "Ice*" - a prequel to The Most Dangerous Thing - a young girl is literally haunted by a child who drowned in a mysterious accident. Available singly or as a collection.
