#1 NYT Bestseller E.K. Johnston returns to contemporary feminist YA. This story of a small town, fierce friendships, and revenge served cold is a perfect companion to Exit, Pursued by a Bear.

In the small town of Eganston, Ontario, five good girls have had enough. They’ve experienced the best of what their community has to offer, but they’ve seen the darker side too. Together, they’ve decided that it’s time for a reckoning and that justice is their privilege to give.
“Johnston is at her best sinking her pen into the guts and glory of girlhood and Pretty Furious is Johnston at her truth-telling best. A novel about the painful intricacies of small-town life, the hurt of growing up and seeing the hypocrisy in others, and the power of female friendship.” —Tess Sharpe, author of The Girls I've Been

"Short and to the point, the story packs a punch with direct prose and strong-willed characters. Add this issue-driven contemporary novel to teen collectionsfor readers who enjoy revenge plots and books like Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian’s Burn for Burn."—Booklist

"What begins as a passing frustration turns into a full-fledged vigilante mission when five best friends make birthday wishes to challenge the narrow-minded viewpoints of their small Canadian town in this feminist thriller."—PW
