Tragedy Girl by Christine Hurley Deriso
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or the review itself.
I liked this book. I suspect I would have really liked this book had I not recently been reading a slew of young adult mystery/thrillers, some of which had better twists and turns than Tragedy Girl.
However, I did like this book, and enjoyed reading it. It is a very quick read which took me less than a day, and the protagonist is someone I definitely found myself rooting for. The mystery is an intriguing one as well, involving a mysterious drowning, a girl whose body was never found, anonymous notes, and a set of secrets no one seems willing to discuss.
The ending is one I predicted about ninety percent of, but it was still suspenseful, and I cared about what was going to happen. This may not be the best book of its genre I've read, but it was a good read nonetheless.
