My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.
Vickie’s small town life has always been predictable… until the little neighbor girl turns up slaughtered in the woods, with evidence of a Satanic ritual surrounding the crime scene. Suddenly Vickie’s family – her older brother’s relationships, her younger brother’s anger outbursts, and the fact that she babysat the victim – is of interest to the entire country.
With reporters camped on the road and her life under a microscope, Vickie works to clear her family’s name, but begins to learn things she isn’t sure she wants to know, such as how close her father was to the dead girl’s mom, and some of the extracurricular activities that her parents’ circle of friends participated in when they were teens themselves.
As her supposedly normal family unravels before her eyes, Vickie begins to realize that the people she knows best may not be who she thought they were.
