Girl in Snow

by Danya Kukafka | Hardcover, $26.00 »
Girl in Snow
A pretty teenage girl dies mysteriously. The police are suspicious. Among the people of interest are a boy who has been stalking her and a jealous female friend. This is no ordinary 'who-killed-the girl,' however, because of the author's patient way of revealing the characters through their actions and thoughts, and her compellingly literary voice. This is a page-turner you won't feel guilty about loving.  —Georgeann
