A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson
As I have mentioned before, I’m not a huge fan of the YA (young adult) genre, but I find a good one can be a perfect summer read. YA tends to be lighter reading (even if the topics are on the serious side), and the teens are always so smart! 🙂
The Premise: High school senior, Pip, chooses an unusual topic for her capstone project. She wants to take a look at how social media affects a murder investigation. She choses this topic because she really thinks a mistake was made in a local murder case and she wants to investigate it herself. Pip ends up befriending the brother of the guy who murdered a local girl 5 years ago.
A Good Girls Guide to Murder can be described as Season 1 of the podcast Serial meets I Know What You Did Last Summer. Despite the topics of murder, drugs and suicide, this is a fun and cute murder mystery.
