Nine babies are created in the 1970s without using men at all. The first baby born is called Girl One. This is her story.
Girl One discovers her mother is missing and her parent’s home partially burned down. She decides to investigate with a reporter. To find answers, they visit the remaining girls and their mothers. While there, Girl One discovers alarming truths about her past—and her future.
Despite throwing every twist possible at the wall to see what sticks, the book still did not enthrall me. I didn’t connect with any of the characters, so I didn’t care what happened to them. Plus, some of the decisions made by the girls were just plain stupid. While the premise was great, Girl One just didn’t live up to its promise. 3 stars.
Thanks to MCD; Farrar, Straus and Giroux; and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
