    Fast Paced Thriller

    This is a quick read featuring a strong independent female main character. Relatively short in length with snappy chapters, readers will be able to fly though this novel in just a few sittings. Part mystery and part contemporary, this book walked the line between genres. This narrative was enigmatic, yet quite emotional in places. Ritter addresses so many serious themes from bullying to family abuse. The story showed the complication of relationships, which are so rarely black or white. Unlike other readers, I primarily picked up this book for the story, rather than the famous author. Admittedly, I am not much a pop culture enthusiast so I knew little about Krysten Ritter as a celebrity. I have seen her in a few movies, but I have not watched Jessica Jones nor Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. As I understand, Ritter plays strong female characters in both of those shows, who may be similar to the main character in this book. The writing in this book was not particularly strong, yet it was decent for what I would expect from an actress writing her first novel. The style was simple with short phrases spliced together with some interesting descriptions. The plot this novel is one I have read many, many times before. I have found that the synopsis of the young woman returning home to her small town to investigate to be a very common narrative. This book reminded me of several other books I have recently read including Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll, Follow Me Down by Sherri Smith, and The Fever by Megan Abbott. Compared to those books, this one was equally strong. If you enjoy any those books, you may very well enjoy this one as well. I would recommend this one fans of Krysten Ritter or simply anyone looking to breeze through an easy intriguing story. I requested this book from Penguin Random House Canada
