Book Review

Book: A Good Girls Guide to Murder

Author: Holly Jackson

This book is about a girl, Pippa Fitz-Amobi, a senior who decides to take on the Andie Bell case which was closed a few years ago but she doesn’t believe that the police solved it. She starts uncovering different truths and collecting new suspects until she finally finds out the real truth about who killed Andie Bell. She figures out that it isn’t Andie’s boyfriend, Sal Singh, whom everyone suspects but the most unsuspected person.

I liked this book because of the plot and how attention-grabbing it is, I also liked the way the author describes different scenes in the book which helps me picture the situation in my mind. I liked the different plot twists that lie within this book at different points, this keeps me in suspense and wanting to know more. I liked how the author portrays the main character, showing how determined she was to solve the case and prove that Sal was innocent, even though he was dead, she still went through a lot of risks to solve the case.

I didn’t like how the author would skip details that seemed important in a certain situation and bring up the details later because it would confuse me as I read along. Other than that I liked the book.

All in all, this book was very interesting and attention-grabbing. I liked reading it and would read it again. I would recommend this book to others, especially people that enjoy reading detective or mystery books. This book can be read by adults as well but I think it is ideal for teenagers who enjoy reading. If I were to rate this book out of 10, I think I’d give it a 9.
