Seventeen-year-old Serendipity "Pity" Jones inherited two things from her mother: a pair of six shooters and perfect aim. Lyndsay Ely presents Gunslinger Girl, a thrilling dystopian Western starring a teenage sharpshooter to rival Annie Oakley. This book is the January Signed First Edition Club pick, a Teen Advisory Board pick, the January Forever Young: YA for Adults Book Club pick, and a staff favorite. AKA we like it... a lot. Don’t miss the mark by overlooking this debut novel. We recommend this book for ages 14+.
"Debut author Ely brings to life a gritty future American West... a little Into the Badlands, a little Firefly, a whole lot to say about how right and wrong so often borrow from each other."―Kirkus
