Praise For Heroine

Praise for The Female of the Species: “[A] gripping story that should be read and discussed by teens, as well as those who work with them.”  

“Each word has been specifically chosen, each character superbly and humanly sculpted, the plot line masterfully completed. McGinnis plays with the readers and they are at her mercy.”

“McGinnis gracefully avoids the pitfalls of creating a teenage vigilante, instead maintaining a sense of piercing realism.”

An unflinching look at rape culture and its repercussions.”

“This is an astoundingly dark but beautifully written tragedy.”

“[I]t’s raw. Not “raw for YA.” Real-deal raw. And violent. And unforgettable. McGinnis explores both and she goes there in a way no one really has before in YA.”

“Your heart may still be pounding after you’ve finished this book.”

Praise for This Darkness Mine: “Rich imagery and a ruthless protagonist propel the novel forward to its shocking, ominous conclusion.”

Praise for A Madness So Discreet: “McGinnis excels at rich character development; every person readers meet makes a dramatic impact on the story and on Grace.”

“McGinnis can surely tell a story.”

Praise for Not a Drop to Drink: “The intensity of action moves the story forward, but not at the expense of character development. The honest and hopeful ending-while not ‘happily ever after’—will resonate with readers and leave them asking for more.”

“Those in search of fierce female survivalist characters need look no further than this.”
