Join us for an online talk with Edgar and Odyssey Award-winning author and New York Times bestselling author Courtney Summers. In her latest thriller, "I'm the Girl," 16-year-old Georgia Avis discovers the dead body of 13-year-old Ashley James. Georgia teams up with Ashley's older sister, Nora, to find and bring the killer to justice before he strikes again. But their investigation throws Georgia into a world of unimaginable privilege and wealth, without conscience or consequence, and, as Ashley’s killer closes in, Georgia will discover when money, power and beauty rule, it might not be a matter of who is guilty — but who is guiltiest.
A spiritual successor to the 2018 breakout hit, "Sadie," "I'm the Girl" is a masterfully written, bold, and unflinching account of how one young woman feels in her body as she struggles to navigate a deadly and predatory power structure while asking readers one question: if this is the way the world is, do you accept it?
