The It Girl – A plot-twisty thriller from Ruth Ware
Praise for The It Girl:
‘I cannot tell you how much I was gripped by it. I recommend it extremely highly’ – Marian Keyes
Everyone wanted her life
Someone wanted her dead
It was Hannah who found April’s body ten years ago.
It was Hannah who didn’t question what she saw that day.
Did her testimony put an innocent man in prison?
She needs to know the truth.
Even if it means questioning her own friends.
Even if it means putting her own life at risk.
Because if the killer wasn’t a stranger, it’s someone she knows…
Duffy’s Thoughts on The It Girl
If you follow my blog, you know I love an excellent twisty-turny thriller with a surprise ending. The It Girl is all of these things and if you’re looking for a holiday read to get lost in, this should be ‘added to cart‘ immediately.
I loved the setting of Oxford and the range of characters, all very well thought out and it’s clear author Ruth Ware spent a vast amount of time really thinking through the friendship dynamics and in particular the personality traits of Hannah and April.
Now, don’t expect an immediate pay-off in the thrills section. The book starts off with a slow burn as the relationships of the main cast of characters are revealed in a ‘now and then’ chapter order. However, once you get to know each of these flawed characters, the pace starts to quicken and the page turns become more urgent. I was glued right to the end of the last page.
