Claire Messud is one of our most talented storytellers. Her latest, THE BURNING GIRL, is a crystalline evocation of the deep friendships that develop between teenage girls, a bond unlike any other. Messud traverses the fraught alliances and raw emotions of high school, reminding us that these ordinary rites of passage can have extraordinary consequences. Messud’s writing is deft and immersive. Her character development, sharp and perceptive. The novel recreates the pain of first realizing that it is impossible to fully know another; that our self-narratives reflect how we want to be seen but not actually who we are.
