God Spare the Girls by Kelsey McKinney

Staff Pick

From the orange and white Whataburger bag to the social mores of church ladies at a wedding shower, McKinney perfectly captures the idiosyncrasies of the Texas patriarchal evangelical culture her protagonists, Abigail and Caroline, inhabit. The two sisters grew up in the shadow of their father, Luke Nolan, the handsome, charismatic pastor of their church, The Hope. But when his affair comes to light, everything they know is called into question. As Abigail gets ready for her wedding and Caroline prepares to leave for college, they turn to their grandmother's ranch house for respite. A coming-of-age novel for the deconstructing Christian, God Spare the Girls explores sisterhood, morality, and identity under small-town summer skies.
