The award winning author Sheena Wilkinson, described by the Irish Times as ‘one of our foremost writers for young people’, has written a review of Bad Girls for the Writers Review.
‘The book raises important questions about what constitutes crime and punishment and the extent to which this is determined by changing social mores…It is dense with detail but always readable and engaging…
Bad Girls joins my library of non-fiction about women’s experiences in the past, and I know I’ll return to it many times. I’d recommend it to anyone with an interest in social history, especially women’s history.’
