Winter in Sydney. The city is brimming with foreign students. Sophie Sandilands takes a job teaching at an English language school. When one of her students leaps to her death it becomes clear that lurking within the psyche of this community is a deep sense of despair and alienation. When it is revealed that the dead woman on the pavement has stolen another’s identity, Sophie is drawn into the mystery.
‘Ghost Girls may have an interesting, and cleverly crafted protagonist in Sophie Sandilands at its heart, but she’s ably supported by a strong cast of characters – on the good and evil sides. She’s also aptly surrounded by the “ghosts” of a series of victims, all of whom remain central to the point of this story of vicious exploitation and cruelty. Add that to the strong sense of place and lifestyle, culture and tradition and Ghost Girls is a remarkable debut indeed.’ – Karen Chisholm (read the full review here)
