Synopsis

Game Girls by Judy Waite

Alix, Courtney and Fern aren't 'bad' girls. They're respectable sixth form students who've hit on a great way to pull in good money. They can buy designer gear, holiday abroad, and aren't even out of place at a millionaire's party. As long as they follow their own 'rules', and keep themselves safe, who cares how they earn the extra cash? No one's going to get hurt. Or are they . . ? A gripping story of teenage girls who use sex to make money - and then find that money is not after all going to resolve all ills.

Reviews

Exciting . . . a thriller and a coming-of-age story rolled into one. -- Melvin Burgess No-holds-barred novel that could prove controversial. -- Becky Stradwick * Publishing News * This book would be particularly useful for reluctant older teen girls (15+) who might be surprised to find there are books like this on the market. * Write Away *
