Emily M. Danforth, the brilliant author behind this tale, takes us on a journey to the Brookhants School for Girls in 1902. Two young students, Flo and Clara, are absolutely obsessed with each other and with a scandalous writer named Mary MacLane. In honor of their idol, these ladies create the Plain Bad Heroine Society, a secret club that meets in an enchanting apple orchard. But tragedy strikes when their bodies are discovered alongside Mary's book, victims of a relentless swarm of yellow jackets. Talk about a disturbing end!
Fast forward to the present day, where the abandoned and crumbling Brookhants is making headlines once again. Merritt Emmons, a rising star in the writing world, publishes a book that delves into the queer and feminist history of the cursed institution. And what do you know? It gets adapted into a controversial horror film starring the lesbian icon Harper Harper as Flo and the former child star Audrey Wells as Clara. But beware, as the lines between past and present blur, the curse of Brookhants intertwines with the twisted workings of Hollywood.
This audiobook, my friends, is a story within a story within a story. Emily M. Danforth weaves a devilishly haunting and brilliantly funny tale filled with ghosts, dark imagination, and biting social commentary. Imagine the atmospheric writing of Sarah Waters, the mind-bending twists of Marisha Pessl, and the wit and insight of Curtis Sittenfeld all rolled into one spellbinding listening experience. Trust me, you don't want to miss out on this luxurious dive into the world of Plain Bad Heroines.
