—The Vancouver Sun
“The Girls… is a ballad, a melancholy song of two very strange, enchanted girls who live out their peculiar, ordinary lives is a rural corner of Canada…”
—New York Times Book Review

ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN STORY
When a series of missteps strands this ragtag group together in the wilderness, they soon realize that their only defense against the brutality of nature is each other. As one day without rescue spirals dramatically into the next, and misadventure turns to nightmare, these four broken souls form an inextricable bond, pushing themselves and each other farther than they ever could have dreamed possible. The three who make it home alive will be forever changed by their harrowing days on the mountain.
