Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka

Goodreads synopsis:

Who Are You When No One Is Watching?

girl-in-snow-9781501144370_hrWhen a beloved high schooler named Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched—not the boy who loved her too much; not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the officer assigned to investigate her murder. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three indelible characters—Cameron, Jade, and Russ—must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth, or both.

In crystalline prose, Danya Kukafka offers a brilliant exploration of identity and of the razor-sharp line between love and obsession, between watching and seeing, between truth and memory. Compulsively readable and powerfully moving, Girl in Snow offers an unforgettable reading experience and introduces a singular new talent in Danya Kukafka.

My Review:

I thought this book started off great.  I liked the way Danya Kukafka drew you in with the characters.  I felt sorry for Cameron and his unhealthy obsession with Lucinda but on the flip side I thought it his obsession was heart-warming.  I was not a fan of Jade’s rebellious look and behavior but I also understood why she was that way.  And poor Russ, the poor guy was just a mess but you will totally understand this as well once you read it.

I did, however, think that this book was slow in places.  I found myself thinking, “just hurry up and tell us who killed her.”

The ending is worth it though so just speed read through those slow parts.  🙂

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the privilege of reading this book.

I am an avid book reader! I have been reading nonstop since 7th grade when I first picked up Pet Semetary by Stephen King. I love crime, psychological thrillers, mystery/thrillers, suspense and horror. But I do like to venture outside the box on occasions.
