Staff Reviews

Peach Pit is a short story collection for anyone who loves it when female characters are a little off-kilter. None of the women in these stories are really likeable, but that's not the point. They enact satisfying revenges and have fraught relationships with those around them. Put together, this collection highlights the many ways women are wronged in today's society, and allows them to fight back in the morally-gray ways we secretly want to, but never would.
