The only down side to this book are that because there are so many different characters and so many different scenarios and things to remember it is hard to keep all the characters straight. I often got confused and had to go back and re-read to remember what happened to whom. But even though that was a set back the book was still worth reading and I have read it about 10 times since the first. So I highly recommend going and checking out this book at your library.
It all starts when the most popular club in school is assigned to a new leader, Irene Stark, who has a malicious hate and relentless grudges towards all men. Her past is haunted by a confrontation at her old school where she taught another Daughters Of Eve chapter, when she was forced to resign and replaced by a male. Bitterness run through her veins as she is put leader to another Daughters Of Eve club in a school called Modesta High. While comforting her students through their troubles and teenage problems, she at the same time brainwashes all of them into believing all men are trying to dissolve woman's rights to be independent.
Her sly words and sneaky exploitation builds the same kind of hate that she feels for men instilled into the girls of Daughter Of Eve. When one of the girls leaves town after trying to commit suicide because a boy broke her heart, the Daughters Of Eve takes drastic actions in creating revenge. This leading to other kinds of horrible plots and broken friendships towards all men that they accuse of doing wrong. Making awful accusations to not only men, but to the innocent.
And when another girl leaves the group because she feels the club is becoming too violent and deceptive, Irene doesn't only do what she can to keep the girl quiet, but also telling lies to the other girls in the process of her manipulation.
Even though this isn't one of Lois Duncan's most suspenseful books, it is one of my favorites.
