's review

it was ok
bookshelves: aimless-dangerous-girls, mystery-crime-thriller, in-my-possession, read-in-2018

I had really high hopes here and came away mostly disappointed. The writing is great overall but a little too try-hard and the plot is a little too thin. Overall I just wanted more. The best moments for me are when Cline speaks specifically about girlhood and its psychology.

I didn't hate it, didn't love it, but glad I read it.
