This is the one book that I could not put down ! I read it in less than 2 days. From the first page the characters suck you in and can't wait to turn the page.
The characters for sure stay with you for a few days.
I am for looking up more from this author.
GOOD READ !
Suspensful novel with lots of twists and turns. Two little girls banished from a birthday party find an abandoned stroller and kill the baby. They are released from "kid prison" and then another child disappears under similiar circumstances and secrets from the original crime start surfacing.
I enjoyed the journey of this book. It's a murder-mystery of types where the reader is not told every detail until the very end. Brings up themes (and questions that go along with them) of juvenile incarceration, race issues, grief. Superb plot twists.
This book moved a little slow for me, but I still enjoyed the story line. Definitely worth reading if you are a fan of her work.
I really liked this book. I read true crime/trial/memoir type books 90 percent of the time. Im starting to read more fiction, and I think Laura Lippman is an excelent writer. Her books are not unrealistic, they are very well paced, and they keep you interested, wanting to know what happens next. This is not a "feel good" book, so if what you're looking for is a basic mystery with a predictable, happy ending, this is not for you. But I loved it, and look forward to reading more of Laura Lippman's books'.
