She was only a baby when he died, but her family still reeled with the repercussions. Her mother Charlotte stayed in bed everyday and hardly emerged from her room while Harriet and her sister Allison ran around town and did whatever they wanted.
Hely is Harriet's best friend and together they hatch a scheme to find out who murdered her older brother. They determine the murderer is Danny, the brother of a local meth dealer. The adventure begins as they start to trail him around town. And while they don't know what to do with the information that Danny is the murderer, they are determined to get back at Danny.
My mom recommended this book - in fact she loved it so much that she bought me my very own copy. And I can see why she liked it. The author is very eloquent and sets every scene so that you can feel, see and breath the same air as the characters in the book.
