Gr 9 Up–Brynn Gallagher isn’t excited to return to Saint Ambrose School. Her family moved away five years ago after the murder of her favorite teacher, Mr. Larkin; the body was found by three students in the woods behind the school, but the murder was never solved. Now they’re moving back, and Brynn must finish her final semester of high school where the murderer might still attend. Brynn is determined to get to the bottom of the crime. She got an internship at Motive, a true crime podcast, and plans to put her journalist skills to work to learn the truth about what happened to Mr. Larkin. Brynn’s investigation is muddied by her complex relationship with Tripp Talbot, her ex-best friend and one of the three students who found the body. But, with the help of her intrepid younger sister Elle, her old middle school friends, and a budding romance with Tripp, Brynn brings readers on her wild ride. As usual, McManus pulls readers into a complex world of murder and suspense, here with dual narratives from Brynn and Tripp; romance; and twists and turns that hit readers right before they see them. Fans of McManus will be happy with this sixth novel and the Easter eggs she leaves.
VERDICT McManus’s latest is a win for mystery and suspense fans and has a little something for everyone. Readers will find this one more sophisticated than some of her previous work, and no less entertaining.
