Reviews

"Squad is monstrously delightful and delightfully monstrous. This book is transformative, healing, and deeply powerful."--Sarah Gailey, author of When We Were Magic
A story you can't help but sink your teeth into. Twists and turns you never see coming. I devoured this book.--Colleen AF Venable, author of National Book Award nominee Kiss Number 8
"People call them all kinds of names--creeps, jerks. But the right word is predator. And that's who we hunt. Becca wants what every high-schooler does: to have a group of friends, a squad. But Becca's new friends are more than a clique, they're a pack, and this pack is hungry. Squad is a fast-paced and feminist horror story for every girl who's ever felt like prey, and asks how far a girl should go to hunt the hunters."--Laura Ruby, National Book Award Finalist and Printz Medalist
If the words 'badass lady-werewolves' aren't enough to convince you to read this book, the luscious art and brilliantly complicated portrayals of female friendship will. Squad will surprise, delight and horrify you. Get ready for this story to sink its teeth right into your heart. --Mallory O'Meara, bestselling author of The Lady from the Black Lagoon
"A fast-paced and deeply satisfying read. Squad is a story fitted with the sharpest teeth that chomps down on the patriarchy, and I adored it with my entire vicious heart.--Chloe Gong, author of New York Times-bestselling These Violent Delights
