Growing up in a rural British Columbia is difficult enough for Jess, Courtney and Dani Campbell before their mother dies. But after their mother passes things really get difficult. One night things get really bad; Jess grabs the shotgun and accidentally shoots and kills their dad. Afraid of what will happen, the girls hide the body and take off for Vancouver before anyone can realize what has happened. When the truck breaks down in the middle of nowhere they reluctantly accept help from two young men who are passing by and things go unbelievably downhill from there. Because they fear a murder charge is waiting for them at home, they don't go to the police but accept help from the local bartender who assists them in getting to Vancouver and to someone who can help them get back on their feet.
One might think this is the end of the story. However, an unexpected pregnancy and an inability to let go finds us seventeen years in the future where the past has come back to haunt the girls. Like other titles from Stevens, Those Girls is gripping, riveting, and emotionally charged. It’s like driving past an accident you can't tear your eyes away from; you won’t stop reading or marveling at the twists and turns happening for the Campbell girls. Those Girls will keep you on the edge of your seat.
