Summary The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Felicity McLean ↠ 9 Summary Read The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone Amphitheatre by the river surrounded by encroaching bushlandNow years later Tikka has returned home to try and make sense of the summer that shaped her and the girls that she never forgotBlackly comic sharply observed and wonderfully endearing this is Picnic at Hanging Rock for a new generation a haunting coming of age story with a shimmering unexplained mystery at its hear. The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone is well written easy to read easily devoured in an afternoon It s slick but conventional it s too easy to see the film adaptation playing out in your head Set mostly in 1992 there is plenty of nostalgia for Gen X Aussies sunnyboys by the pool a slumber party complete with half arsed s ance the Azaria Chamberlain case in the news The child narrator is endearing and the author really seems to get the dynamics between adolescent preteen girls The blurb blazons some big name comparisons So is this like Picnic at Hanging Rock Only inasmuch as it s set in Australia and some girls go missing Is it like The Virgin Suicides Only inasmuch as those suburban girls are three blonde sisters This novel sits in that crossover zone between commercial literary fiction along with books like Jasper Jones but without the theme of racial prejudice or The Lovely Bones but without the violence and supernatural ghosties I feel I can pretty safely say that if you lovedhated those books you will lovehate Van Apfel Girls too For me it was good Readable enjoyable but not particularly memorable
