What Happened That Night by Deanna Cameron is a YA Mystery available now!
“Griffin Tomlin is dead. And Clara’s sister killed him . . .
Four months after the murder, the entire town of Shiloh is still in shock. For Clara Porterfield, the normal world has crumbled around her in a million chaotic pieces. Now Clara lives in a new reality, where her sister awaits trial for murder, her mother obsessively digs in a dead, frozen garden, and her father lives and breathes denial. At school, Clara is haunted by her classmates’ morbid curiosity—and all of the unspoken questions they won’t ask.
But none of them knows what she knows . . .
Now Clara’s sister wants something from her—the one thing in all of this that Clara isn’t ready to face: the truth about what really happened that night. Because this story didn’t die with Griffin Tomlin. There’s another story that needs to be told. And sometimes, the lies we’re told are nowhere near as deadly as the lies we tell ourselves . . .”
This is a book for readers who love murder mysteries.
When a local boy is found murdered and her sister is placed on trial, it’s up to the main character to try and figure out what really happened and who is truly behind it all.
She teams up with a reporter in an attempt to bring justice to the situation and set her sister free.
If you read a lot of YA murder mysteries, you may notice that this one reads similarly. The plot reads like its fellow genre novels, so some of it was a bit predictable.
But overall, the story was still enticing and did have a few thrills here and there. I ended up giving this one 4 out of 5 stars.
