Product description

Review

"Shifting in time, this crisply written novel explores the universal human yearning to belong—and the terrible toll it can sometimes exact." -- People

“For when you want a coming-of-age novel with a dark twist. In this provocative novel, the past isn’t always as far away as you think.” -- The Skimm

“In this captivating debut novel, Ellie Eaton traces adolescent female sexuality, class divides, and the weight of formative memories on adults.” -- Vulture,
New York Magazine

"[G]ripping...Jumping between modern-day Los Angeles and 1990s Britain,
The Divines examines destructive bonds and lingering traumas." -- E! Online

"An exploration of the destructive relationships between teenage girls at an entirely toxic and secluded boarding school. What more could you want?" -- Parade

"A provocative meditation on our obsession with youth—including our own—and an exploration into the power and perversity of teenage girls, 
The Divines is perfectly twisted in its reflection of an utterly toxic environment, making it impossible to put down till you get to its end.” -- Refinery 29

The Divines is a cool, chilling and elegant novel that intrigues and compels the reader, while filleting the absurdities of British class hierarchy with a very, very sharp knife. In Eaton's stylish and controlled prose, the oppressive atmosphere of a girls' boarding school becomes the site of a violent and mysterious act, but also a lens through which to examine the intoxicating and unnerving power of adolescent sexuality, the dangers and consolations of friendship, and the toxic nature of the class divide. It's a terrific, entertaining and astute work and one of considerable relevance to the way we live now.”  -- Sarah Perry, Internationally bestselling author of The Essex Serpent and Melmoth

“The Divines is a scintillating coming-of-age story about the brutal bonds of female boarding school friendships, class prejudices, and the ways in which false memories can take the place of truth. Sephine is an unflinching and utterly convincing narrator. I lapped up every delicious detail.” -- Susie Yang, New York Times bestselling author of White Ivy

"[An] intelligent debut… Eaton does a good job describing class tension and the misery of trying to fit into a social clique as a teenager. Josephine’s steady unraveling of her teenage dramas will keep readers riveted." --
Publishers Weekly

“At times both sharp and haunting, this novel embodies the awkwardness and regret of adolescence.... A layered and complex debut.” --
Booklist --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
