9780142424308: Sirens

Fans of The Great Gatsby, Libba Bray's The Diviners, and Bright Young Things will be captivated by Janet Fox's Roaring Twenties tale.
Two girls. One gangster. A deadly secret.
When Josephine's father ships her off to live with her rich cousins on the glittering island of Manhattan, he says it's to find a husband. But Jo knows better--there's trouble brewing, and in 1925, all that glitters is not gold. Caught up in a swirl of her cousin's bobbed-hair set--and the men that court them--Jo soon realizes that this world of jazz and gangsters and their molls hides a nest of lies. But when she befriends the girlfriend of one of the most powerful and dangerous gangesters in town, Jo begins to uncover secrets--secrets that threaten an empire and could destroy everyone she loves. Jo is faced with a choice: hang on to her soul, or lose herself in the decade of decadence.

"The thrilling episodes . . . will engage readers."---SLJ on Faithful

"Fox combines mystery, romance, and a young girl's coming-of-age in this satisfying historical tale."---Booklist on Faithful

"Kula's story comes to a heartbreaking, bittersweet conclusion that will leave readers satisfied."---SLJ on Forgiven

"[Forgiven is] a riveting, well-written, wonderful story."
--Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor Winner, NBA finalist and NY Times bestselling author

"[A] gripping tale!"---Booklist on Forgiven

"[Forgiven is] absorbing, exciting, and romantic!"
--Nancy Werlin, NBA finalist and New York Times bestselling author of Impossible

"Yes, there's a mystery here. It involves Jo's supposedly dead brother, Lou's gangster boyfriend, bootlegging, a bombing, missing pages from a journal, and more than a few Dark Secrets. All of which was quite fun, though it's not why "Sirens" was a stand-out for me. . . . "Sirens" is a celebration of girl power, sisterhood, and hope for the future." --Leila Roy for "Kirkus Reviews" blog
