2015 book 88

Kimberly McCreight's Where They Found Her
The followup to McCreight's debut Recovering Amelia was kind of a let-down for me. It involves small town politics, university politics, the discovery of the body of a little baby, a couple of teenage girls who might be involved, the mother of said teenage girls, and a reporter covering all this who had a stillborn baby fairly recently. It's kind of a lot, and the chaos doesn't really do the story any favors--I ended up not really being invested in any of it. Some of the resolutions were interesting/surprising, but on the whole, I thought the end was overly neat and mildly silly. B-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released on Tuesday.
