Pretty Girls

Pretty Girls: A Novel - Karin Slaughter

When Claire’s husband is murdered and a young girl, who looks a lot like her sister who disappeared 20 years ago, is missing she reaches out to her estranged sister, Lydia, for support.


The book is intense and needs all sorts of trigger warnings slapped on it. That being said it was one of the only books that have scared me in recent history. I still think about it from time to time and get the willies, and not because of the very graphic and gruesome details in this book (if I think about those I get grossed out but it’s the plot that gives me the willies). If you like thrillers and can handle some very intense graphic details I’d recommend it. I took off half a star because at times the story was a bit slow and there were a few things that were just too far-fetched and unnecessary.
