Girl in Snow by Danya Kufafka :review.

Girl in Snow
Lucinda, a young girl has been killed, turning upside down the lives of the inhabitants of a town by the mountains in Colorado. The story is told from the points of view of a girl who hated her, a boy who stalked her and a police officer with a promise to keep.

Both Jade and Cameron not only share the same high-school but they also have in common dysfunctional families. Russ, the policeman investigating the murder, is struggling to make his marriage work while trying to find the culprit.

If you are expecting a novel about some jocks and cheerleaders solving a murder and living happily ever after, this book is not for you.

However, if you want to read a story about some real people who are not the luckiest or the prettiest and still manage to survive, this book is for you. It is sad, it is depressing and shows how bad life can get in a small village, but it also shows hope.

My favourite part of the book is when Jade imagines the things she would like to say but can't say. I think we all have that feeling more often than not and we all picture an alternative reality in which we vent our frustration without consequences. Unfortunately, some things are better left unsaid, although just like in the novel saying sometimes how you really feel can also have an unforeseen positive effect in your life.

I would recommend this novel to adults who are not so young and want to read something different from cliché high-school books.

I received a copy of this novel from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
