First Line: People would want to know what she was thinking, the night before.
Josie, Perri, and Kat have been best friends since the third grade. However high school will eventually test their friendship. But things really come to a head when one of the girls brings a gun to school. When the police finally arrive they find one girl dead and the other two wounded, one of them critically. What could possibly drive one of these three girls to snap like that? In this small affluent suburb, people want answers … or do they?
I really enjoyed this book!!! I think I have only read one other Laura Lippman book but this one was really really really good!! For those of you who are involved in the Suspense & Thriller challenge, I categorized this as a Drama Thriller mainly because of the character development – you really learn who the girls were and why they eventually split up during high school. Anyway, I really recommend this book!!
