A Good Girl's Guide to Murder The case is closed Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh The police know he did it Everyone in town knows he did itBut having grown up in the same small town that was consumed by the murder, Pippa Fitz Amobi isn t so sure When she chooses the case as the topic for her final year project, she starts to uncover secrets that someone in town desperately wants to stay hidden And if the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth I m going to review this book the only way I know how It s getting TWO ratings Let s discuss 3 stars is where I stand on this book It was good It fell victim to my problem with YA which is why I don t really read a lot of YA I have so much trouble relating to the characters because that time in my life is long over and I have trouble caring There were also some similarities to the murder being investigated and the first Serial Podcast case, so that kind of irked me a little I might be I m going to review this book the only way I know how It s getting TWO ratings Let s discuss 3 stars is where I stand on this book It was good It fell victim to my problem with YA which is why I don t really read a lot of YA I have so much trouble relating to the characters because that time in my life is long over and I have trouble caring There were also some similarities to the murder being investigated and the first Serial Podcast case, so that kind of irked me a little I might be being a little too picky on that one, but that s me being honest 4 stars is what I think I would rate this if I didn t have a YA problem I think it s unfair for me to leave out feedback on how I thought this was a good effort for YA and deserves much praise It just wasn t for this particular reader and I don t want my late 30 s take to ruin someone picking it up who really adores YA For a younger reader, I think this book will be extremely popular and provides a good snapshot to life as a late teen.Back to my 3 star review I got to page 60 and wanted to DNF There were so many of my book friends who just raved so I had to keep going to see who did it What bothered me a lot throughout the book was that the characters needed some fleshing out Particularly Pippa What a great girl character, but it was so one dimensional She was a wonderful student, very devoted to this project, loved her family, but that was kind of it I neededwhy about her and I wanted to careabout her as a person Most of the characterization seemed all very token high school crowd I just wanted to beemotionally invested in this than I was so that left me feeling disappointed There was also a lot of repetition.The four star I really liked the use of mixed media in here the transcriptions, emails, text messages and charts That was cool and helped the reader really feel like they were Pippa investigating this in real time I complained about the repetition above, but for a younger reader I felt this served a good purpose in helping to see critical thinking skills at work Overall, a very mixed bag and I doubt I will read the next book, but I m glad that this is a winner among so many other people I hope my review did a good job of bridging both sides since a YA book shouldn t have that held against it just because I don t really like to read them That seems kind of unfair, don t you think Thanks to the Buffalo Library for coming to my rescue and providing this copy at the peak of it s hype on the gram Review Date 02 10 2020US Publication Date 02 04 2020 APPLAUSE

fall from the sky and drop on your lap Go and buy it and send me thank you letters for my encouraging words We have an amazing heroine, Pippa don t confuse her with longstocking Fitz Amobi loves to search, pry, dig into, talented, smart, nerdy, funny, social, friendly, brave, stands between Nancy Drew and Veronica Mars, older version of Harriet Walsh, with her technical skills, tattoo less and leather less, chain less version of Lisbeth Salander and a younger version Molder less and alien nation less version of Dana Scully Blurb is tempting, amazing, intriguing makes you dive in, clasp the book into your fingers and never let it go as I did My dogs are jealous of the book by barking to the moon to protest me But I resumed my reading because it was gripping, hooking you from the first page kind of book Five years ago, Andie Bell got missing and presumed dead by Sal Singh who committed suicide and sent a text message confessing his crime before he d killed himself But Andie s body had never been found The case is close But Pippa is determined to open it by starting her own investigation process to write her school project and she firstly knocked Sal s family door to ask an interview with his 20 years old brother Ravi who naturally becomes partners in crime with her and their project which turns out the mission for proving Sal s innocence and finding who might have killed Andie As they start to dig , the person of interest list of Pippa becomes longer, includes Pippa s best friend s sister There are too many questions screaming inside your head Who really killed Andie Or Andie is really dead Did she deserve her ending Because as soon as we learnabout her, we discover she is a bully, drama queen, drug dealer, blackmailer Her amazing attributes gave me itchy fists to punch her It s strange because I never wanted to kick presumed dead person or I m not sure she is dead person Well, that s a first because this character is living, breathing or not scumbag Who put the blame on Sal Or Sal really did it Well, he s portrait of nice, humble, angelic guy made me call him Castiel as like Supernatural s angel character But we can sense he has been hiding something His friends changed their testimonies about his where beings and his leaving time from their place and rejected to be his alibis So where was he at the murder time Who was sending threatening messages to Pippa to stop her digging Well, I made one of my fastest reads and my spider sense didn t work properly to find the killer or killers till the last pages The author was always ten steps ahead of me I m so blessed to be beaten by her smart writing I had great time to visualize this as a great YA mystery movie or limited Netflix series Anything could be better to replace the third season of 13 reasons why which could be named as 13 reasons of list why the hell did you shoot the third season It was moving, enjoyable, nail biter, mind bending, surprisingly exciting, satisfying read I enjoyed every page, every clue, every thrilling moments of this book I highly recommend it It was even better than One of Us is lying And the best news is there are 3sequels to come
