A Good Girl's Guide to Murder Review

Featured Books for Young Adults Thrillers

An unusual and clever YA whodunnit.

Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2020

The murder of schoolgirl Andie Bell was the talk of Pippa Fitz-Amobi’s town, and she’s convinced the police got the wrong guy. Under the guise of writing an EPQ on the media’s coverage of the crime, Pippa sets out to discover the truth.

The Branford Boase judges said :  ‘compulsive reading’; ‘all the characters are credible’; ‘I loved the story, loved its pace’; ‘I was caught out by the twist!’.


A Good Girl's Guide to Murder Synopsis

A debut YA crime thriller as addictive as Serial as compelling as Riverdale and as page-turning as One of Us Is Lying The case is closed.

Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it. But having grown up in the same small town that was consumed by the crime, Pippa Fitz-Amobi isn't so sure. When she chooses the case as the topic for her final project, she starts to uncover secrets that someone in town desperately wants to stay hidden. And if the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth . . . ?

Perfect for fans of One of Us Is Lying, Gone Girl, We Were Liars and Riverdale.
