When I seen this book as a selection for Book of the Month I was excited. This book seemed really good and it was a mystery/thriller by a black author.
Lena and her sister Desiree haven’t talked in two years, in fact, the only they have in common is that they have the same father. One day, Desiree is found dead in the middle of a playground and it looks like she may have overdosed due to the needle marks discovered on her body. Lena, who hasn’t spoken to Desiree in two years, just knows that this could not have been what happened to her. So, Lena decides to take Desiree’s murder into her own hands and figure out what really happened to her.
I think what confused me was what made Lena think, “Nope! This isn’t what happened. She didn’t overdose.” The reason why Lena and Desiree hadn’t spoken in two year was because of Desiree’s bad decisions and her partying. And she immediately thought it was connected to something that happened before they stopped speaking. It was never explained why Lena came to that conclusion.
There is a lot of repetitiveness in the book and at times it did get pretty boring. In the beginning, I found myself hooked because I was ready to see how everything was going to go down. But as I kept reading, I found myself having some unanswered questions and my attention started to take a back seat which sucks because I wanted to love this book.
