I was going through a Hitchcock phase, actually! I was watching the movies and watching old Twilight Zones during a particularly rainy month with a friend, and I just got so caught up in that creepy, spooky, moody mood. I thought of Rebecca, all about one woman’s desire to be as good as another woman, and I was like…a girl is jealous of a girl and it’s fuelled by her interest in a guy? High school! I’d loved the book when I was younger, and the fact that it’s a classic that has been overlooked in this, the era of remakes, seemed like a crime.Were you ever the 'new girl' at sometime?
-Oh ho ho! Oh yes. I went to two elementary schools, two middle schools, and three high schools. Oh, and three colleges. Yes, I was the new girl many times. I never minded. I like change, I love reinvention, and I loved standing out. But it is scary. You’re alone completely, and you’re at the mercy of whoever takes you under their wing.What's one of your favourite retellings, other than New girl of course!?
-Haha, right of course. Hmm, that’s a tough one. I loved Avalon High when I was younger.I just love the UK cover of the book! What do you think? Do you think it suits the story of New girl?
New girl by Paige HarbisonMy review
What's it about?
A contemporary young-adult retelling inspired by the classic 1938 romantic suspense bestseller Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
They call me 'New Girl'...
Ever since I arrived at exclusive, prestigious Manderly Academy, that’s who I am. New girl. Unknown. But not unnoticed—because of her.
Becca Normandy—that’s the name on everyone’s lips. The girl whose picture I see everywhere. The girl I can’t compare to. I mean, her going missing is the only reason a spot opened up for me at the academy. And everyone stares at me like it’s my fault.
Except for Max Holloway—the boy whose name shouldn’t be spoken. At least, not by me. Everyone thinks of him as Becca’s boyfriend…but she’s gone, and here I am, replacing her. I wish it were that easy. Sometimes, when I think of Max, I can imagine how Becca’s life was so much better than mine could ever be.
And maybe she’s still out there, waiting to take it back.
