High school senior Hattie Hoffman has spent her whole life playing many parts: the good student, the good daughter, the good citizen. When she's found brutally stabbed to death on the opening night of her high school play, the tragedy rips through the fabric of her small-town community. Local sheriff Del Goodman, a family friend of the Hoffmans, vows to find her killer, but trying to solve her murder yields more questions than answers.

I've never done a review here before but the narration of this book is so bad I had to say something. Caitlin Thorburn pronounces many places and cities in Minnesota incorrectly. She also gives SOUTHERN accents to a number of MN characters.
The man reading the part of the detective does all of the female voices as if the women were horrible, nagging harpies. Honestly, it's sexist and offensive.
The man reading the part of the teacher has a speech impediment and sounds about 30 years older than he should.
The narration really took me out of the story. I almost didn't finish it.

It begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, where everything seems picture perfect. Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory.

This book is a bit sick. There are graphic,almost gratuitous descriptions of rape. It was a bit too much for my taste.
