Review: Girl in Snow

Girl in Snow Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A young, pretty girl is found dead in a playground carousel. This happens in a small, safe Colorado suburb, almost with no crime, which makes it even more horrid.

Aside from Lucinda, the murdered girl, there are three main characters. They all have their own private, unresolved issues, that haunt them and mold their actions.

Russ Fletcher, the police officer in charge of the case; Cameron Whitley, the young stalker in love with Lucinda; and Jade Dixon-Burns, also a student at Lucinda's school, who has every reason to hate her (and does).
They guide us around Lucinda's life and Broomsville's society. It's not easy feeling an outsider in such a small community, and in one way or the other, these three are on the fringe.

Although very well described, the secondary characters are also crucial to the story: the well meaning but clueless parents, the mean parents, the younger sister, the wives.

My only "but" to this book is that the outcome, the killer was a total cliché. The who and the why are something I have read in other books before.

Nevertheless, an amazing book.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
