A century after the macabre deaths of several students at a New England girls' boarding school, the release of a sensational book on the school's history inspires a horror film adaptation that renews suspicions of a curse when the cast and crew arrive at the long-abandoned building. 1902, the Brookhants School for Girls. Flo and Clara are obsessed with each other and with Mary MacLane, the author of a scandalous bestselling memoir. The girls establish their own private club and call it the Plain Bad Heroine Society. Their bodies are discovered in a nearby apple orchard, with a copy of Mary's book splayed beside them, the victims of a swarm of stinging, angry yellow jackets. within five years three more people die on the property-- and the Brookhants School for Girls closes its doors forever. The now abandoned and crumbling Brookhants is back in the news when writer Merritt Emmons publishes a breakout book celebrating the queer, feminist history surrounding the "haunted and cursed" Gilded Age institution. Her book inspires a controversial horror film adaptation starring lesbian it girl Harper Harper playing the ill-fated heroine Flo, and former child star Audrey Wells as Clara. But as Brookhants opens its gates once again for filming, soon it's impossible to tell where the curse leaves off and Hollywood begins. -- adapted from jacket… (mais)

Plot:
Brookhants School for Girls is rumored to be haunted. At the beginning of the 20th century, there were several strange deaths at the school before it closed. Among the dead were Clara and Flo who bonded of Mary MacLane‘s memoir and fell in love. Now, more than a hundred years later, a movie is in the works about Brookhants that will be shot on location. Based on Merritt Emmons historical research, the big star of the moment Harper Harper, and acting hopeful Audrey Wells have been cast as Flo and Clara and are excited to begin working. But strange things start happening at set.

Plain Bad Heroines was genuinely delightful and one of my favorite reads of the year. It is funny and charming, but also actually goosebump-inducingly scary. And to top it all off, it is wonderfully queer. I cannot recommend it enough.

Really liked the writing and the premise was great. But this was so tedious. I don’t mind reading a long novel if I feel like there is a payoff for it by the end. It just never came together for me. ( )

This story had so much potential but it got lost in the explanation. The “cause” of the curse was intriguing but it was introduced too late in the story for it to have much impact or to explain all the weird occurrences and hauntings. ( )

This book is way longer than it needs to be, and it’s all setup that fails to deliver. Early on the seeds were planted for some seriously creepy gothic chills that never materialized. The mechanics and rationale of the “curse” lacked explanation: why things manifested as they did and who was affected by the curse was muddled or absent. I listened to the audiobook, and I’m not quite sure how the narrator may have affected my opinion of the book. She had a slow, ironic drawl that seemed right in tone, like we’re all in on the same joke, but that maybe kept me from taking the whole thing seriously enough. ( )

Surely there must be in a world of manifold beautiful things something among them for me. And always, while I am still young, there is that dim light, the Future. But it is indeed a dim, dim light, and ofttimes there’s a treachery in it.
—MARY MACLANE, The Story of Mary MacLane
To be durable and perfect, to be in fact grown-up, is to be an object, an altar, the figure in a stained-glass window: cherishable stuff. But really, it is so much better to sneeze and feel human.

Though I am young and feminine--very feminine--I am not that quaint conceit, a girl: the sort of person that Laura E. Richards writes about, and Nora Perry, and Louisa M. Alcott,--girls with bright eyes, and with charming faces (they always have charming faces), standing with reluctant feet where the brook and river meet,--and all that sort of thing.
