Good Girl’s Guide to Murder

Monday, May 6th


A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson is about a 17-year-old high school student named Pippa Fitz-Amobi, who decides to investigate a murder, that happened in her small town of Little Kilton five years ago, for her senior year project.
The murder victim was a popular high school student named Andie Bell, who was purportedly killed by her boyfriend, Sal Singh, who then committed suicide.  Pippa is not convinced that Sal is guilty, and she sets out to prove his innocence.
Pippa’s investigation leads her to interview people who knew Andie and Sal, including Andie’s friends, family, and former classmates.  She discovers that there were many inconsistent and unanswered questions in the original investigation.  She also finds new evidence that suggests that someone else might have been involved in the murder, and a trail of dark secrets that might actually prove Sal innocent.  The line between past and present begins to blur, someone doesn’t want Pip digging around for answers, and her own life might be in danger.
