Review: The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood

The Wicked GirlsThe Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading THE KILLER NEXT DOOR, I immediately dove into THE WICKED GIRLS--and I was NOT disappointed. Two girls, children from opposite ends of the social spectrum, meet on a hot summer day. The wealthier child takes pity on the poor one and gives her a gift of candy that the shop owner wouldn't allow the poor child to buy. What begins as an act of kindness devolves into a day from hell from both children. Years later, they meet again. Both are terrified by this bizarre turn of events. Each has paid a terrible price for that hot summer day, but no one will permit them the luxury of being forgiven. This is a tragic tale of of family secrets, truth, justice, and redemption. Have tissues at hand and be prepared to be stunned by the ending.
