Beckie reads Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A. S. King

Why did you read this book? We were looking for something like The Basic Eight to read while driving. This seemed to have the high school murder and potential for humour.

Has Jeremy read it? Yes. He listened to me read it aloud while driving around New Zealand.

42 word review: High-school student’s ex-best friend dies, then tries to convince her to clear his name. Pretty good as an emotional coming-of-age story (not the dark comedy I was expecting). The motivations for the characters’ bad actions (other than plot necessity) weren’t always believable.

Overall rating: 3 scraps of napkin (out of 5)
