Speak Softly, She Can Hear

This book is touted as a thriller, but I call bullshit. It's the story of two girls who make a pact to lose their virginity to this guy. Something awful happens and the girls are forced to cover it up with the guy. Over the years the girls grow apart, but the secret doesn't die. This was a very good, creepy read, but it wasn't the thriller it promised. The insecurities and little jealousies that plague teenagers ring very true here, and as the years go by and the girls grow up, it's cool to see what kind of women they'll become but I was disappointed that Naomi (the best friend) sortof became a cartoon character by the end of the book. Really she was a cliche of the worst kind and I felt the author was capable of better considering what a good job she did with Carol (the lead). I kept reading it but a lot of the middle bits that didn't involve the three core characters was a little trying because it didn't seem to further the plot, ti was just place holder until something interesting could happen. Read this book if you like tv-movie-mysteries, but don't expect a page turner.
