2014 book 181

Elizabeth Little's Dear Daughter
Can I say that this book was moderately goofy, but I liked it a lot anyway? It centers on a young woman--a famous celebutate type--who's been in jail for murdering her mother (though she doesn't remember committing the crime) when she's released on a technicality and goes searching for clues to the real killer. The plot is pretty ridiculous if you examine it at all closely, but the narrative voice is really engaging and the pacing is strong. The very end is also a little silly, but in general I'd recommend this as a fun summer read. B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book is available now.
