** PRE ORDER NOW ** DUE FOR RELEASE JULY 2020 **
Pretty Girls is a visceral narrative of violence, personal tragedy and female resilience set against the backdrop of
one of Australia’s most politically charged communities, Redfern, where sinister racial tensions underpin everything.
Evie is a woman in her mid-thirties who returns to her hometown to meet with her dying father. In coming back
to the place where she grew up she has to revisit her history of violence – the death of her mother, the suicide of her
brother and the domestic violence that occurred in her home. Her father only has a short time to live – she expects
to find him a changed man. But he’s not. He’s unrepentant and unapologetic for his actions.
Evie has to reclaim her story – she’s not just a pretty girl, she won’t just sit down, be quiet, stay still – but getting
there is more than tough, more than an ordeal – it’s a mammoth display of tenacity and strength.
Pretty Girls is ultimately a story of triumph. Evie rises from the ashes of a hellish past and re-writes her story.
There is a part of Evie in every woman and Pretty Girls seeks to start a movement.
#iamevie aims to spearhead an empowered future for women across the world.
