Thelma and Louise gets remade in this powerful, darkly funny teen novel from acclaimed authors Brittany Cavallaro and Emily Henry. Two teenage girls who have had enough of the controlling men in their lives take their rage on the road to make a new life for themselves.

Winona has been starving for life in the seemingly perfect home that she shares with her seemingly perfect father, celebrity weatherman Stormy Olsen. No one knows that he locks the pantry door to control her eating and leaves bruises where no one can see them.

Lucille has been suffocating beneath the needs of her mother and her drug-dealing brother, wondering if there’s more out there for her than disappearing waitress tips and a lifetime of barely getting by.

One harrowing night, Winona and Lucille realize they can’t wait until graduation to start their new lives. They need out. Now. One hour later, they’re armed with a plan that will take them from their small Michigan town to Chicago.

All they need is three grand, fast. And really, a stolen convertible can’t hurt.

Chased by the oppression, toxicity, and powerlessness that has held them down, Winona and Lucille must reclaim their strength if they are going to make their daring escape—and get away with it.



The Thelma to My Louise…

Hello Girls is a modern day Thelma & Louise story, a story where two women become friends due to their extraordinary life circumstances and decide to leave it all behind.

We got to thinking – who is the Thelma and who is the Louise in our friendship?

Thelma

Loyal to a fault. A little meek. Still learning who she is.

Louise

Expert on human nature due to her job as a waitress. Does what she wants.
Tough. Jaded. Realistic.

Christy: If you took 20 something year old me and put her in this scenario, I am definitely the Thelma. I really didn’t know who I wanted to be and I didn’t have the voice I wish I did. I only wish I had Kelly then!

Kelly: As a young adult, I definitely was more tough and reckless, but also astutely aware of my surroundings. I could tell when trouble was afoot, and I would do anything to protect my friends. I barely let anyone inside my heart, and kept very thick walls. I almost tried to break up a friendship because in my realistic rationale we were too different to be friends, little did I know that our differences just made us stronger.


You can take a quiz here to figure out which character you most relate to!
