In ‘Bad Girls’ Novel, Mathieu Explores Girl Gangs of Houston in the 1960s
In October, Mathieu's fifth novel, Bad Girls Never Say Die, serves up a feminist reimagining of S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders, one that promises to explore the deep bonds of female friendship. Naturally, the book features a rivalry between the "good girls" from the "right" side of the tracks and Mathieu's star Evie Barnes, a "bad girl" who is a little too brash, bold and into boys for the times. Mischief? Yes please. Mayhem? Yes please. Murder? Maybe! Read it to find out. Hits bookstores on Oct. 7.
