Those Girls by Chevy Stevens is a gripping novel that is about three sisters (Dani, 17, Courtney-16 and Jess-14) who are abused by an alcoholic father and later raped and how each is affected by their experience and deals with it differently. These sisters are very close and support each other and start a new life with help from an unlikely source, an ex-con who got a break and is plays it forward.
The girls do pretty good at putting their past behind them until Jess discovers she is pregnant by the guy who raped her and brings everything back.
I LOVED this book in spite of some very graphic and horrifying parts which worked to get the reader to really root for those girls to succeed. The bond between the sisters was very interesting to me and how Jess's daughter became the "best part of them." I liked the people who helped the girls along their way with the "playing if forward" theme worked in and the way they chose their new names for the new identities. The ending had a lot of suspense and action which made me to keep reading and not put this down!

Gerard's review (5++ stars):
Those Girls by Chevy Stevens is about three sisters. One of the sisters shoots their dad to save the other one from him and they all go on the run! They soon find more trouble. This books is told in three parts from various points of view. I really enjoyed the first part of the book as the girls were in big trouble with non-stop action. The second part was pretty much rehashing what happened in the first part but part 3 when everything came together more than made up for part 2 and I got caught up in it!
