What Kelli is Reading: Girl, Forgotten

My daughter Kelli has been reading like crazy. It’s actually audiobooks that she’s listening to but she is really into it. Her latest is from a favorite author of the family, Karin Slaughter, and the book is called Girl, Forgotten. We’ve read many if not all of the books by her. My daughter Kayla likes them as well. They are crime books. Our favorite is always the Will Trent books.

But back to this book.

Kelli writes:
This one kept me on my toes.  I do have to admit that it got a little boring-ish in the middle cause there wasn’t any clear theories that were emerging, just that a lot of people who seemed okay in the beginning were anything but okay at all.  It did flash back and forth between when the incident occured and when it was being solved a significant time later.  As for the ending, I was quite surprised.  It took me a bit to realize that it was a specific person, but the ending part of it was definitely a surprise.  I have read quite a few Karin Slaughter books over the past few years and this was a good reminder why I loved them all!  I’m probably going to check a different online source I have and see if there are others as there weren’t too many in my Hoopla account–And the speed at which I am going through books seems to be on the rise.

Here is what Amazon had to say….

A small town hides a big secret…Who killed Emily Vaughn?
A girl with a secret…
Longbill Beach, 1982. Emily Vaughn gets ready for the prom. For an athlete, who is smart, pretty and well-liked, this night should be the highlight of her high school career. But Emily has a secret. And by the end of the evening, that secret will be silenced forever. 
An unsolved murder…
Forty years later, Emily’s murder remains a mystery. Her tight-knit group of friends closed ranks; her respected, wealthy family retreated inwards; the small town moved on from her grisly attack. But all that’s about to change.
One final chance to uncover a killer…
US Marshal Andrea Oliver arrives in Longbill Beach on her first assignment: to protect a judge receiving death threats. But, in reality, Andrea is there to find justice for Emily. The killer is still out there—and Andrea must discover the truth before she gets silenced, too…

Amazon readers gave the book 4.3 stars. Kelli said she would agree because the middle was a tad bit slow.

You can find the book HERE on Amazon if you are interested. If you are new to Karen Slaughter, we suggest starting with the book Tryptch.

  1. I enjoy these books too. I am from Georgia and she is, as well. I enjoyed the Will Trent series on T.V., especially because it was taking place around the Atlanta area and I recognized the references. I am going to look for more that I haven’t read at the library. It is always fun to know other people who like the same books!
