Deep Girls tells stories that defy the conventions of YA, sweeping aside the clichés of life, love and family, giving us stories of girls whose lives mirror the world that young readers see around them.

The young women in these stories, on the verge of adulthood, start seeing their parents and families in a new light of vulnerability. We see family members at their worst, we witness the search for strength, and we see girls becoming women as their worlds change around them.
