Totally readable, with interesting made up folklore running through it, this is compelling while you are reading but almost instantly forgettable once put down. Lots of potential in the writing but it just doesn't quite hold together. It doesn't help that, bar the police detective, it's hard to find anyone to root for, with the majority of the cast being either unlikable or two-dimensional with the protagonist falling somewhere between the two.

With its literary motifs and boarding school setting, and despite the narrative point-of-view, this story jibes more with my sense of young-adult than adult crime fiction. It's a complex weave of themes about lying and living with lies, a narrative packed with tragic legend, literature, social media, and unhappy teens in the context of inappropriate sexual contact between underage girls and adults. It's a worthy topic but Ms. Goodman doesn't go far enough to shock me with her revelations nor doe ...more
