The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes

  • Mar 26, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Harper Curtis is a killer who stepped out of the past. Kirby Mazrachi is the girl who was never meant to have a future.

Kirby is the last shining girl, one of the bright young women, burning with potential, whose lives Harper is destined to snuff out after he stumbles on a House in Depression-era Chicago that opens on to other times.

At the urging of the House, Harper inserts himself into the lives of the shining girls, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. He's the ultimate hunter, vanishing into another time after each murder, untraceable-until one of his victims survives.

Determined to bring her would-be killer to justice, Kirby joins theChicago Sun-Times to work with the ex-homicide reporter, Dan Velasquez, who covered her case. Soon Kirby finds herself closing in on the impossible truth . . .

    I'm so sorry that I have to bow out last minute, I was really looking forward to meeting you all & discussing the book! Something came up and I won't make it tonight, but I look forward to the next gathering.

    Before I forget ladies, I got some recommendations for Genres. I think that this time, to read something totally different than what we have for a while, let's go with a non-fiction memoir written within the last few years :) Please bring suggestions to the next meetup :)

    If I come at all it will be towards the end of your mtg. What time do you think you will end? (I think I have the wrong group. I am in my "20's and 30's" x 2!!...sorry)

      You know it changes everytime but we usually start winding down around 8 pm. Last time a few stayed past 9 pm.

    Hey ladies, based on Ginger's suggestion, I was thinking that it would be great if everyone pick some genres they want to read. That way we can possibly pick the next genres for the next 3-6 months? You can post them here in the comments as well and I'll compile it all to bring to the next meetup. This will make it easier to bring book suggestions for the next meetups :)
