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.
I really enjoyed this one. I liked the way the story was told, with Pip’s project interviews and her notes being shown throughout. The storyline was really good and it had a good mystery to it. I was hoping for a big twist at the end but that didn’t really come. I think the ending could have been a bit better but it isn’t anywhere near the worst I’ve read. It was still good, I just felt it was slightly predictable. Other than that, the book had great characters, great relationships between the characters and a great storyline. Would definitely recommend.
