Edelweiss Summary: Three high school girls become the avenging Furies of Greek legend.
We were only three angry girls, to begin with. Alix, the hot-tempered surfer chick; Stephanie, the tree-hugging activist; and me, Meg, the quiet foster kid, the one who never quite fit in. We hardly knew each other, but each of us nurtured a burning anger: at the jerks in our class, at our disappointing parents, at the whole flawed, unjust world.
We were only three angry girls, simmering uselessly in our ocean-side California town, until one day a mysterious, beautiful classmate named Ambrosia taught us what else we could be: Powerful. Deadly. Furious.
Why am I waiting on Furious? I can’t resist books with Greek mythology and have not read a book where the furies were the main characters. I’m also surprised that the girls on the cover look like real high school girls instead of overly madeup, highly airbrushed super models. What books are you waiting on?
