Reviews

"An exquisitely crafted YA tale about the prescribed bounds of femininity by Anna-Marie McLemore...
Flawless Girls splits storied notions of proper femininity--and gender itself--apart at the seams in an exemplary portrait of learning to express oneself...McLemore's signature prose both cuts like ice and rolls languidly off the tongue." --Shelf Awareness (starred)

"McLemore expertly layers dreamlike descriptions to craft the otherworldly, gothic atmosphere in which this sensitive portrait of an intersex person unfolds." --Publishers Weekly

"As eerie and twisted as a delirium dream, this dark academia from award-winning author McLemore explores the pressures put on women to be perfect and what happens when those pressures become too much. " --Booklist

"A girl thrust into an eerily impeccable finishing school must sort the madness beneath its flawless façade in this exquisitely crafted YA tale about the prescribed boundaries of femininity." --Shelf Awareness

"The use of language is flawless, with rich, lush metaphors and lyrical, ethereal descriptions for terrifying things." --BCCB

"Unsettling and packed with sparkly detail, this book is perfect for gothic-literature and period-piece fans who are eager for a much-needed update in representation." --Horn Book
