Publisher's Summary

The Secret History meets Sharp Objects in this stunning debut about murder and glamour set in the ambiguous and claustrophobic world of an exclusive New England prep school.

Death sets the plot in motion: the murder of Nica Baker, beautiful, wild, enigmatic, and only 16. The crime is solved, and quickly--a lonely classmate, unrequited love, a suicide note confession--but memory and instinct won't allow Nica's older sister, Grace, to accept the case as closed.

Dropping out of college and living at home, working at the moneyed and progressive private high school in Hartford, Connecticut, from which she recently graduated, Grace becomes increasingly obsessed with identifying and punishing the real killer.

Compulsively readable, Lili Anolik's debut novel combines the verbal dexterity of Marisha Pessl's Special Topic in Calamity Physics and the haunting atmospherics and hairpin plot twists of Megan Abbott's Dare Me.

    "Great listen!"

    Well written, loved the details and character development
    Worth the credit for sure
    Narrator was a bit over dramatic but nothing too distracting

    "Confusing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author jumps around too much.


    What was most disappointing about Lili Anolik’s story?

    It's terribly confusing. I found it exhausting trying to keep up.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eileen Stevens?

    The narrator is ok - not terrible and not great.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None - I'm not even going to finish it.

    "Dark and enthralling"

    A great, addictive listen. If you like Gillian Flynn novels, you will love this, too. Dark and enthralling, full of surprises.

    "Awful"

    The author jumps around so much through out the book I think I need to listen to is 2 more times. The storyline isn't bad but was written horribly.

    Story
    "Slightly odd but pretty good"

    I got hooked at first and then my commitment to listening to it wavered and then it got interesting again and now I have finally finished.
    The narration is great because it's exactly the type of American accent I imagine for American kids in high school, though whenever she did a male voice it did make me smile at first- but you get used to it .

    Story wise, the best thing about it is how you get to see families behind closed doors. I'm not sure how much I liked the main character but you don't have to like her to follow the story.
