Two girls. About the same age. Both missing. And then one is found dead.
Nobody seems to pay that much attention to Helen’s death, except those people hoping it may somehow be related to Chloe’s disappearance. Because, after all, Chloe’s the important one. Helen’s just a poor girl from the reservation. Chloe’s rich, white, and popular. So of course people are going to be more concerned about her. At least that’s the way Jenny sees it. And it bothers her.
It bothers her so much that she begins to dig deeper, hoping to uncover the truth about what happened to Helen. At the same time, she has to face the truth about what happened to Chloe and the part she played in it.
This was a good, solid story for me. The suspense is there, but it also has a very humanistic approach. The author delves deeply into societal divides, across races and classes and even high school cliques. A good read!
