The Girls by Lauren Ace
Vividly created by Lauren Ace and Jenny Løvlie, The Girls is a winning celebration of difference, individuality and friendship that lasts a lifetime.
The beautifully illustrated story follows four friends from childhood into adulthood. As different as they are the same, each girl takes her individual path, whilst always staying part of the others’ lives, wherever their journey takes them.
A huge hit with adults and children alike, The Girls is an inspiring story with a resonance that grows with each re-reading.
“Friendship is the fifth character in this beautiful story that charts the lives of four girls. This winning combination of Ace’s purposeful text and Løvlie’s charming illustrations provide a story that is brimming over with character and compassion. The overarching theme of inspiration is underpinned with a sweetness that encourages children and adults to return to and share this story again and again.” - - Florentyna Martin, Waterstones Children’s Buyer
