Last Girls Blog Tour: Mood Board, Excerpt, and Giveaway

No one knows how the world will end.

On a secret compound in the Washington wilderness, Honey Juniper and her sisters are training to hunt, homestead, and protect their own.

Prepare for every situation.

But when danger strikes from within, putting her sisters at risk, training becomes real life, and only one thing is certain:

Nowhere is safe.

Last Girls
Publisher: Tor Teen
Release Date: May 5th 2020
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary



Last Girls by Demetra Brodsky is about three sisters referred to as the Juniper Sister Weirdos. These sisters are Blue, Birdie, and Honey and they don't live the same life that you or I do. They live with doomsday folk that prepare for the worst on a compound in the Washington wilderness. People on the outside have no idea. Instead of living a life where they hang out with friends, these girls learn to hunt and live without technology. They are prepared to survive.

I thought this book was very interesting. It definitely brought something new to the YA community. I don't think we talk too much or even hear a lot about people that prep for the end of the world. This is definitely a book that is hard to put down because you want to know what happens next. That is also how most thrillers go. This book definitely takes you on a roller coaster.

Pre-Order Campaign:


Hey all! The Juniper sisters in LAST GIRLS don't go anywhere without a backpack (what they call an EDC: Every Day Carry) and they take great pride in their artwork. Honey paints, Birdie draws comics, and Blue uses embroidery to fancy up her clothes (when she's not spending time with her beloved falcon, Achilles). To honor the sisters' talents, I'll be sending one lucky winner some artistic inspiration by offering up a fabulous pre-order Grand Prize. But don't worry, everyone who orders will receive a gift with purchase. And, as a bonus, I'm including a 2nd prize that holds a special place in my author heart.
