When Sasha moves from Russia with her mother, she's eager to start a new life. At her new school she joins CREW (Confident, Remarkable, Excellent, Welcoming), a girls' volunteer group. But she quickly learns that the group is a front for a girl gang and their true philosophy is to Con, Rip Off, Exploit, and Weaken the people they claim to help. Their leader is eager to exploit Sasha's computer skills for a more lucrative level of crime: stealing identities and blackmailing men online.

This story plays out against the backdrop of peer pressure and digital media, showing readers that fitting in with a group isn't worth sacrificing your safety and integrity.

"The story is captivating, moving, full of suspense and twists and turns."

- Anthony Cherrier NetGalley

"Gang Girl could certainly have a place in a classroom library ... The language is clear and simple for an emerging or struggling reader while the content is suitable for a more mature audience."

- Allison Giggey, teacher-librarian CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"In addition to the diverse protagonists, many secondary characters also bring diversity to the series."

- Kirkus Reviews
