Review: Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka

Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka Expected Publication: August 1, 2017 Publisher: Simon & Schuster Format: via NetGalley Rating: 4/5 Synopsis Who Are You When No One Is Watching? When a beloved high schooler named Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched—not the boy who loved her too much; not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the officer assigned to investigate her murder. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three indelible characters—Cameron, Jade, and Russ—must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth, or both. In crystalline prose, Danya Kukafka offers a brilliant exploration of identity and of the razor-sharp line between love and obsession, between watching and seeing, between truth and memory. My Thoughts Girl in Snow is an intriguing and creepy [in a good way] novel about a girl named Lucinda who is found murdered and trying to find out who did this to her. Ther

When his family decides to sell a home that’s been part of their history for over a century, Lowe Mancinkus is madder than a hornet.
