BOOK REVIEW – A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson

A Good Girl's Guide to Murder

Published May 2nd, 2019 by Electric Monkey


A terrific Young Adult thriller!

Five years ago, Sal Singh murdered seventeen-year-old, Andie Bell.

Or did he?

The police, the press, and almost the whole town thought he did. And what he did after he was charged with the crime didn’t help change anyone’s mind.

But Andie’s body was never found….

Seventeen-year-old, Pippa (Pip) Fitz-Amobi isn’t so sure that Sal was guilty.  Pip chooses the case for her senior project. She even teams up with Sal’s brother, Ravi. Ravi believes his brother is innocent and desperately wants to clear his name.

After receiving some threatening messages, it soon becomes clear that someone wants Pip to stop investigating and leave this “solved” case well enough alone.

If Sal didn’t kill Andie then who did? Pip could be in danger if a ruthless killer is still roaming the streets of Fairview.


A complex and compelling story with a great cast of characters and loads of drama and tension. An excellent debut!

I don’t read a lot of young adult novels, but now and then I come across a winner!

I was gripped by the fast-paced story and finished it in just a couple of days. Interspersed was mixed media including, transcripts, text messages, journal entries, that helped pull me even further into the story. Although I figured a few things out early on, I was still excited to see what was going to happen next.

An addictive and captivating story of murder, deception, secrets, and obsession!

I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in this thrilling series by Holly Jackson.
