I am reviewing a copy of The Lives Of Desperate Girls Through Penguin Teen and Netgalley:

Helen Commanda only sixteen is found dead outside of Thunder Creek Ontario.  Her murder would have likely been forgotten accept for the fact that it may shed light on the earlier dissapearance of Chloe Shaughnessy.  She was rich, beautiful and white, and had nothing in common with Helen who is plain and lived on the reservation.  They had one other thing in common they were girls from an unforgiving small town.  Only Chloe’s best friend knows exactly how unforgiving the town is.

The adults have failed so Jenny starts seeking answers about Helen’s life and death, trying to understand the town and her best friend but can she succeed where the adults have failed?  Does Jenny have a role in this conspiracy of silence.

I give The Lives Of Desperate Girls five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
