For Fans of Julia Glass and Ann Hood, a Novel about How
the Choices We Make Last a Lifetime
Vegas Girls begins when three former high school
friends, now in their mid-thirties, reunite in their
hometown of Las Vegasâ€”a city they vowed to escape as soon as
they couldâ€”to celebrate their new lives and revisit old
haunts. But what starts out as a week-long, sun-kissed
reunion takes a strange turn as mysterious gifts appear,
familiar faces pop up in unexpected places, and each woman
reveals a secret, private quest.
Ramona is searching for a son she gave up for adoption
before their high-school graduation. Jane is trying to leave
her husband of eleven years, even with her two kids in tow.
And Ivy, who has a new baby, is haunted by the memory of her
mother abandoning her twenty years agoâ€”and she has begun
spotting her everywhere. Add to this a darkly charismatic
ex-boyfriend of Ivyâ€™s who wonâ€™t give up hope of rekindling
their romance, and a strange, new friend of Janeâ€™s in need
of help, and the week quickly begins to unravel.
Set against desert heat, swimming pools, and casino lights,
and told masterfully through five different points of view,
Vegas Girls is about how we navigate the present
while carrying the ghosts of our past; about growing up with
one eye glued to the rearview mirror; and about what happens
when the past you thought you left behind turns out to have
been with you all along.
