Review (Word Count 329):

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson details Pippa Fitz-Amobi’s senior capstone as she investigates the truth of what really happened to Andie Bell and Sal Singh. Five years ago, Andie Bell went missing, presumed murdered by her boyfriend, Sal Singh. Shortly after her disappearance, Sal confesses and commits suicide. The case is closed and everyone in Pippa’s small town believes that Sal murder Andie, marring Sal’s family. But Pippa isn’t so convinced; Andie’s body was never found and there is no real evidence against Sal. With the help of Sal’s younger brother, Ravi, Pippa attempts to reopen the case, but doesn’t expect to find a trail of dark secrets that could prove that Sal is innocent. Only, someone doesn’t want her to find the answers, and starts to threaten Pippa. Could it be Andie’s real killer?

Holly Jackson creates a page turner filled with great characters, capstone entries, and secrets that will make you think you think you solved the case, only to be given new evidence, theories, and people of interest that will keep you guessing. Pippa makes a great heroine. She’s an intelligent, school focused girl with a knack for seeing things that others don’t. As the story progresses, she becomes fearless and brave, as she does what she thinks is right to get Sal’s innocence. The rest of the ensemble of suspects go from flat to multidimensional as we learn more about the secrets they’ve kept. Pippa’s capstone entries are also included in the novel, giving you all the information that you need without slowing the story down. It also gives the reader a line of thought as she connects the red thread in her investigation and her ever growing list of persons of interest. It allows the reader to join Pippa in her investigation, looking for clues and trying to find evidence on whether or not Sal Singh really murdered Andie Bell.

An investigation full of twists and turns perfect for all true crime aficionados.
