Hello Girls Blog Tour: Review and Playlist


Best friends are forged by fire. For Winona Olsen and Lucille Pryce, that fire happened the night they met outside the police station—both deciding whether to turn their families in. Winona has been starving for life in the seemingly perfect home that she shares with her seemingly perfect father, celebrity weatherman Stormy Olsen. No one knows that he locks the pantry door to control her eating and leaves bruises where no one can see them. Lucille has been suffocating beneath the needs of her mother and her drug-dealing brother, wondering if there’s more out there for her than disappearing waitress tips and generations of barely getting by. One harrowing night, Winona and Lucille realize they can’t wait until graduation to start their new lives. They need out. Now. All they need is three grand, fast. And really, a stolen convertible to take them from Michigan to Las Vegas can’t hurt.

Hello Girls
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release Date: August 6th 2019

Genre: Contemporary, Young Adult



This is the story about two girls that were let down and abandoned by people they thought were there for them and to protect them. These two girls definitely left wreckage in their wake. The one thing that is always steady is their friendship. These girls are like a modern Thelma and Louise. Both girls have had to come to terms with their abuse and how to stand up and become themselves.

These girls are running from their past. They don't want to conform to what society would like them to be. This book is about survival. How these two girls survived while leaning on each other. These characters are written so well. I thought Cavallaro and Henry did such a great job with their character development. The focus on Winona and Lucille's friendship was amazing. We don't have enought books that focus on the importance of frienship.
