The Girls

Author(s): Chloe Higgins

General | 2019 September New Releases

In 2005, Chloe Higgins was seventeen years old. She and her mother, Rhonda, stayed home so that she could revise for her HSC exams while her two younger sisters, Carlie and Lisa, went skiing with their father. On the way back from their trip, their car veered off the highway, flipped on its side and burst into flames. Both her sisters were killed. Their father walked away from the accident with only minor injuries. This book is about what happened next.


A tender and heartfelt book, exploring the intricacies and long aftermath of trauma and grief with great frankness and directness. Its honest and exacting exploration of what happens to the body and the self in grief is deeply moving, without being excoriating, and the writing is both lyrical and tough - Higgins has a distinctive and accomplished voice, and this book is a beautiful achievement.' FIONA WRIGHT


'An urgent, poetic and skinless howl of a book.' LEE KOFMAN


'An astounding new voice whose work mines the slippery regions between grief, sex, love, parents and children. This book is a rare find.' FELICITY CASTAGNA
