THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT! 

An addictive must-read mystery with shades of Serial and Making a Murderer about an investigation turned obsession, full of twists and turns and with an ending you’ll never expect.


Everyone in Fairview knows the story.

Pretty and popular high school senior Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend, Sal Singh, who then killed himself. It was all anyone could talk about. And five years later, Pip sees how the tragedy still haunts her town.

But she can’t shake the feeling that there was more to what happened that day. She knew Sal when she was a child, and he was always so kind to her. How could he possibly have been a killer?

Now a senior herself, Pip decides to reexamine the closed case for her final project, at first just to cast doubt on the original investigation. But soon she discovers a trail of dark secrets that might actually prove Sal innocent…and the line between past and present begins to blur. Someone in Fairview doesn’t want Pip digging around for answers, and now her own life might be in danger.


And don’t miss the sequel, Good Girl, Bad Blood! 

“The perfect nail-biting mystery.”—Natasha Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author 

Story Locale: present-day; fictional town of Fairview, CT

Satisfying, page-turning mystery: The plot is full of unexpected developments and dark secrets coming to light. There are discoveries you don’t see coming, and the ending definitely doesn’t disappoint.

True crime / procedural feel: Clever and twisty, it captures the feel of shows like Serial and Making a Murderer in a way that will resonate with teens.

Engaging protagonist: Pip is a relatable heroine as she seeks justice for the wrongly accused, and even though this is a crime thriller, the voice is warm and there’s humor in the relationships and the dialogue.

Deeper social issues: The heart of the story addresses small-town politics and deep-rooted prejudices, which makes Pip’s investigation even more compelling.

Unique format: The main narrative is interspersed with Pip’s crime logs and various documents.

Teaser to the sequel: The paperback will include a teaser to the sequel, GOOD GIRL, BAD BLOOD (Spring 21)
