THE GOOD LUCK GIRLS
The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls–they know their luck is anything but. Sold to a “welcome house” as children and branded with cursed markings. Trapped in a life they would never have chosen.
When Clementine accidentally murders a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom, justice, and revenge in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by Arketta’s most vicious and powerful forces, both human and inhuman, their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one Good Luck Girl to another, a story that only the youngest or most desperate would ever believe.
It’s going to take more than luck for them all to survive. (Goodreads)
This sounds like an incredibly interesting fantasy. From the reviews I read, it seems that there is (TW) prostitution/forced prostitution in this novel which would be triggering for some readers. However, I’m interested to see how and if the girls find their freedom and what they have to go through to get it.
I imagine this is a book of desperate hope the lengths people are willing to go to in order to attain their freedom and revenge. Definitely makes my TBR.
