A century after the macabre deaths of several students at a New England girls' boarding school, the release of a sensational book on the school's history inspires a horror film adaptation that renews suspicions of a curse when the cast and crew arrive at the long-abandoned building. 1902, the Brookhants School for Girls. Flo and Clara are obsessed with each other and with Mary MacLane, the author of a scandalous bestselling memoir. The girls establish their own private club and call it the Plain Bad Heroine Society. Their bodies are discovered in a nearby apple orchard, with a copy of Mary's book splayed beside them, the victims of a swarm of stinging, angry yellow jackets. within five years three more people die on the property-- and the Brookhants School for Girls closes its doors forever. The now abandoned and crumbling Brookhants is back in the news when writer Merritt Emmons publishes a breakout book celebrating the queer, feminist history surrounding the "haunted and cursed" Gilded Age institution. Her book inspires a controversial horror film adaptation starring lesbian it girl Harper Harper playing the ill-fated heroine Flo, and former child star Audrey Wells as Clara. But as Brookhants opens its gates once again for filming, soon it's impossible to tell where the curse leaves off and Hollywood begins. -- adapted from jacket… (més)

I think my expectations were waaaay too high for this one. I don't know. I mostly sort of enjoyed the book but could have probably done completely without the contemporary component. I mean, it seemed overly long and I just don't get the point of spending so much time in the current era with the movie. And soooo many characters and twists. It was really too many for me.

I read the ebook and listened to the audiobook, sometimes together. Which reminds me about how much the footnotes irritated me. Having to tap and have the footnote pop up was irritating and the reading of the instagram posts in the audiobook - ugh. I know it sounds petty but there were so many.

I'm not sure if the time spent was worth the payoff for me.

We picked Plain Bad Heroines as the March book on Cocktail Hour and I'm excited to discuss it with Andy and Colette. ( )

5+ out of 5.
Absolutely fantastic -- this book has big NIGHT FILM energy but also weaves in a time-hopping story that never drags, never feels too long even at just-over-600 pages, and genuinely packs a spooky punch to boot. The book feels vivid and fresh and like it blurs the lines between reality and fiction in the best possible ways, leaving the book as an inhabitant in your mind long after you've put it down. There's a sense of my world now including Bo Dhillon's film and real people called Harper and Audrey and Merritt, in the same way that I want to see a Cordova film or I'm curious to see if Tuesday Mooney might pop across the street in front of me the next time I'm in Boston.

Fucking great stuff.

I loved the stories of all these queer women, and the gothic atmosphere aspect of the 1902 storyline. The ominous narrator works very well in the time period, as the book passes around the school and haunts people.
In the modern day, however, it felt a bit out of place and made those chapters drag. ( )

I'd say "don't read this while sick" but honestly? Maybe just skip this one ( )

Xe Sands is the perfect narrator for this dual-timeline, Gothic horror audiobook! It's a long one (19 hours) but it sucks you in. Creeping horror, movie-making, layered storytelling -- will look for more by this author. ( )

Surely there must be in a world of manifold beautiful things something among them for me. And always, while I am still young, there is that dim light, the Future. But it is indeed a dim, dim light, and ofttimes there’s a treachery in it.
—MARY MACLANE, The Story of Mary MacLane
To be durable and perfect, to be in fact grown-up, is to be an object, an altar, the figure in a stained-glass window: cherishable stuff. But really, it is so much better to sneeze and feel human.
—TRUMAN CAPOTE, Answered Prayers

Though I am young and feminine--very feminine--I am not that quaint conceit, a girl: the sort of person that Laura E. Richards writes about, and Nora Perry, and Louisa M. Alcott,--girls with bright eyes, and with charming faces (they always have charming faces), standing with reluctant feet where the brook and river meet,--and all that sort of thing.
