Summary from Goodreads: Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.


Review: A friend at work told me that the show for this book was amazing and I needed to watch it. Of course, I didn't have the channel, but the book is the next best thing, right? The story started off slow as we followed the main character as she goes back to her home town to dig up some dirt on a few murders that happened. There was a lot of reporter kind of mumbo jumbo happening, but as the end drew near, I really started to wonder who the murder was. Oh snap! the ending will sneak up on you. I didn't even see it coming. It was worth the read and I know that you will love it too.
