The Silent Girls by Eric Rickstad ~ Fiction #BookReview

23488202This book bursts out of the gate at a full sprint, and doesn’t let up as surprise after surprise confronts the reader. There were times when I had no idea who to suspect (and I’m suspicious by nature – I usually suspect everyone!), and I found myself shocked (in a good way) a time or two.

The premise of this book felt fresh and interesting. I wasn’t a huge fan of the protagonist, but I didn’t dislike him, either. The characters were well developed and the writing was strong.

This is definitely an author to watch. There’s a touchy subject (abortion), but if you’re okay with that (it’s fiction, after all), this is also a book to add to your reading list. 5 stars!
