The Fire Keeper’s Girls

Two rebel teenage cousins uncover their true talents and outwit oppressors in this fast-moving real time story. Sent to spend summer at a lonely beach in the care of an eccentric mentor, they’re introduced to a mysterious women’s network through a game. Gradually the girls gain clarity and insight into their own troubled histories. They learn from other women’s lives and acquire new, practical skills. But when they return home and dangers threaten once more, will this be enough to keep them safe? The Fire Keeper’s Girls is called ‘the book every woman wishes she had read as a teenager’ by Alexia Hilbertidou, Founder and CEO of GirlBoss NZ and Winner of Westpac Women of Influence (2016). Twenty-five brief biographies of influential women from twenty-five countries are included.
