  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 January #1
    Fairview has been haunted by the disappearance of popular girl Andie Bell and the unexpected suicide of her alleged killer, Sal Singh. Five years later, high school senior Pippa Fitz-Amobi, who has had serious doubts about the officially circulated version of the story, decides that proving Sal's innocence will be the focus of her capstone project. But with each new discovery, Pip finds herself racing toward danger in ways she could never have expected. Thankfully, she has Sal's brother, Ravi, to help her along the way, and together they just might solve a mystery nobody else was able to unravel. Debut novelist Jackson transforms what could be a routine murder mystery into a critical examination of xenophobia, unfounded bias, and the incredibly complicated motivations that drive us all to act in ways we would never believe possible. This is an engaging narrative, full of twists and turns that will both shock and delight fans of murder, mayhem, and intrigue. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
