This is the story of one summer morning in 1986 when two eleven-year-old girls meet for the first time and by the end of the day are charged with murder.
25 years later their paths cross and they both struggle to keep their wicked secret hidden from friends and family.The plot for this book is great but Alex Marwood doesn’t follow through with making the story interesting throughout the book. The story falls flat and even the interesting parts lose its spark. There are some interesting characters and Marwood isn’t a bad writer I just felt like she couldn’t handle making this story with such an interesting plot floating. It’s not a bad book I just felt it promised more than it gives you which is disappointing.
I don’t know what else there is to tell about this book. To be honest, I don’t remember much about it and that maybe says it all?
