Being a Laura Lippman book, this was a let down. Still very much readable, especially if you are bored. But, not up to her usual great writing. To me, it felt a bit slow through out the entire story. Then, the ending was not what I expected. To be honest, I expected something more than what it was. ( )

Synopsis: Three girls meet in elementary school and remain good friends through high school. In their senior year, one kills another and shoots the third in the foot - or was that what really happened?
Review: This really looks at interactions among girls and their friends and rivals. It also pulls in girls trying hard to pleases their parents. ( )

Perri, Josie and Kat have been best friends since third grade. Shortly before high school graduation one of them brings a gun to school and one girl is killed, another fatally wounded and the third shot in the foot. This sounded like it could be interesting but it really dragged. The author gives us way too much detail about random characters, some of whom seem to have no real relevance to the main story. It seemed to take forever for the "big revelation" to come and when it did it wasn't very shoking. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060506733, Mass Market Paperback)

Josie, Perri, and Kat have been best friends since third grade—the athlete, the drama queen, and the popular beauty. Growing up in an affluent suburb of Baltimore, they enjoy privileges many teenagers are denied. But on the final day of school one of them brings a gun with her. And when the police break down the door of the high school girls' bathroom, locked from the inside, they find two of the friends wounded, one of them critically . . . and the third girl is dead.

From multiple-award winner Laura Lippman, one of the most acclaimed authors of crime fiction writing today, comes a tale of secrets, friendship, and betrayal that illuminates a dark and chilling event with clarity and empathy.
