The girls at Modesta High School feel like they’re stuck in some anti-feminist time warp. They are faced with sexism at every turn, and they have had enough. Sponsored by their new art teacher, Ms. Stark, they band together to form the Daughters of Eve. It’s more than a school club, it’s a secret society, a sisterhood. At first, it seems like they are actually changing the way guys at school treat them, but Ms. Stark urges them to take more vindictive action, and it starts to feel more like revenge. Blinded by their oath of loyalty, the Daughters of Eve become instruments of vengeance. Can one of them break the spell before real tragedy strikes?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 2/18/2014

    " Published in 1979, this book has a strong message about women's role in society and the changes from one generation to the next. Worth reading, though a little weird of course. Also touches on the power of persuasion/adult's control over teens, family alcoholism and teen pregnancy/abortion. Sorority in a high school = Daughters of Eve. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 2/10/2014

    " Really great story that I couldnt put down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heaether | 2/5/2014

    " loves this book! it was teen 1970's version of the prime of miss jean brodie = AWESOME and over the top! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 2/5/2014

    " This particular book was just plain scarey. The story was exceptionally good (though I kept waiting for a demon or such to appear in explanation). The 'teen "Mob" mentality' especially under the guidance of a trusted/twisted adult is very frightening. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 1/16/2014

    " An enjoyable read..a bit predictable and cliche. I think this book was made into a movie, as the storyline is very familiar. For the life of me though, I can't figure out why this book is on a banned books list. I have read worse ones, even from that period of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessi | 1/2/2014

    " One of my favorite books by Lois Duncan; quite memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bean | 11/13/2013

    " I love Lois Duncan's ridiculousness, but even this was a bit much for me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anita Smith | 11/10/2013

    " One of ny favorites when I was in middle school! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 *Earth Loving Reader* | 10/18/2013

    " I liked this one really well, it wasnt top of her books in my mind but it was a great read. I had forgotten how much i really liked her books, i am thinnking of hunting all the Lois Duncan books down to reread now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ingrid | 9/28/2013

    " I read a lot of Lois Duncan as a kid and when I saw this at a yard sale, I snatched it up. A great read about a girls' club lead by a man-hating teacher. The characters' are nuanced and sympathetic and I love love love the ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anactacia | 9/26/2013

    " The swearing is unbearable, SEX is in it!!!! It trashes morals BUT! It has a good handle on the problems of feminism and it shows how a good idea can lead to mass corruption! The ending is trashy and you are left unsatisfied! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/27/2013

    " trying to re-read a lot of the Lois Duncan from my childhood this summer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amrita | 7/19/2012

    " This book is about feminism taken to the extreme. It's very creepy!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 5/15/2012

    " This book was ok, not the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 4/29/2012

    " An interesting look at feminism and how easily it can be to get swept into a cult unknowingly. We've come a long way since the books setting, women have more equal footing now but each character's personal struggles can still ring true even today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaiden♥ | 4/16/2012

    " It really touched on an important subject,and that is women and how they're so underestimated. But i did expect it to be scarier, which is why it didn't get all 5 stars. Other than that, i loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/15/2012

    " This book was very creepy. I loved everything but parts of the epiloge disappointed me. "

    " this book im currently reading right now. this is really interesting and I like it. It 's about these three girls that live their normal likes and it's mystirirous because things start happening "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stefanie | 2/18/2011

    " I found this book to be both incredibly interesting and disturbing. I hated the way the men in the story treated the women, and the cult-like mentality the teacher impressed on the Daughters of Eve group was intriguing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kat | 11/8/2010

    " I love Lois Duncan's ridiculousness, but even this was a bit much for me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 6/16/2010

    " Although I last read this book in middle school, I in no way remember it being "anti-feminist." To the contrary. I do however, remember it being exceptionally dark. I was reminded of this book after I read the book Living Dead Girl, by Elizabeth Scott. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ingrid | 3/31/2008

    " A great book but perhaps too scary to ever reread! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colleen | 12/7/2007

    " An interesting look at differing viewpoints of feminism. Dark, serious, and semi-realistic. Demonstrates the consequences of Groupthink within an intelligent group of young women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 S. | 10/7/2007

    " This is very bizarre. Not sure if it's supposed to be anti-feminist or just exploring the cult mentality. I remember reading this in middle school, when I was a fan of Duncan's works. Down A Dark Hall is my favorite. Schubert is in it! Sort of. "
