"Enough plot twists to give a reader whiplash." --Cosmopolitan From New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young comes the start of a thrilling, subversive new series about a girls-only boarding school with a terrifying secret and the friends who will stop at nothing to protect each other. Some of the prettiest flowers have the sharpest thorns. The Girls of Innovations Academy are beautiful and well-behaved--it says so on their report cards. Under the watchful gaze of their Guardian, they receive a well-rounded education that promises to make them better. Obedient girls, free from arrogance or defiance. Free from troublesome opinions or individual interests. But the girls' carefully controlled existence may not be quite as it appears. As Mena and her friends uncover the dark secrets of what's actually happening there--and who they really are--the girls of Innovations Academy will learn to fight back. Bringing the trademark plot twists and high-octane drama that made The Program a bestselling and award-winning series, Suzanne Young launches a new series that confronts some of today's most pressing ethical questions.… (més)

I loved this book, this book is all about feminism and I am all for it.

OHMYGOD THIS BOOK IS JUST SOOOO GOOD. THERE ARE SO MANY PLOT TWISTS AND DISTRUBING SCENES. The men are such pigs in this book. ( )

My goodness, this was a thrilling (horrifying) read. From the start there was a sense of foreboding which only intensified the more I read. Mena annoyed me at the start but she became a worthy protagonist as she began to grow, question and finally understand what was really happening to the girls in the Academy. While it was obvious to the reader, it took Mena and her friends longer to come to the same realisation.

There were parts of "Girls with Sharp Sticks" that were quite shocking. The lack of boundaries the men displayed, the acts of violence and the 'medical' treatments were chilling and morally wrong. I truly feared for all the girls, especially Mena. However, the strong bond between the girls was the highlight of the novel. They kept each other safe and ultimately sane.

While I don't think Jackson was a necessary character, he might play a bigger role in the following books and I am looking forward to reading "Girls with Razor Hearts"

While I wasn't necessarily surprised by the fact that the girls were being prepared to be sold to men, I was surprised that they were all robots. How does that work? Why didn't they decommission them after they all ran away? And why do they even need to be artificial in the first place?

There's a lot of telling rather than showing. I wanted more of the school, seeing how these girls were being mounded and taught; heck, even more backstory to the girl's friendships would have been great. While I read it pretty quickly, I didn't really find myself engaged or even that interested. The characters were fairly one-dimensional, and not a lot happens.

I appreciate the fact that it's the power of poetry that wakes the girls, though. ( )

teen fiction (suspense/mystery with sci-fi and feminist interest; 2 of the minor characters are incidentally lesbian).
Don't be fooled by the clean cover--what starts off as a story about mild-mannered 16 y.o.s will turn bloody by the end. While the surprise twist isn't that much of a surprise if you've been paying attention, it doesn't detract from the compulsive readability of the book. Looking forward to part 2! ( )
