Tragedy Girl by Christine Hurley Deriso
"Of course Anne would be drawn to Blake. He’s good-looking, he’s friendly, and they both bring sob stories to the table: her parents died in a car wreck; his girlfriend, Cara, drowned. Of course Blake would understand what she’s going through. And of course they can help each other work through the pain. It’s like it was meant to be.
But just as Anne starts to feel like she’s finally found something good in all the tragedy, there are signs she can’t ignore that something’s off. Her friends rarely let her be alone with Blake. Even those closest to Blake seem uneasy around him. And then there are the rumors about the death of Cara, whose body was never recovered. Rumors that suggest Blake’s pain is hiding something darker than Anne can even begin to comprehend . . ."- summary from Amazon
I was really excited to read this book and it was good- a quick, suspenseful, page-turning read! Anne is a great main character and it was interesting to see her slowly burgeoning relationship with Blake and all the red flags surrounding it. The reveal was unexpected and a big twist; there was much more to it than you'd expect. Overall, it was quite a good thriller/mystery and I'm interested to read more from Deriso.
