I'll be honest: partway through this book, I googled the murder victim's name and it turned out I knew all about the case (Ashton Kutcher's "ex-girlfriend" is the victim). So I skimmished the rest of the book. Before I googled, I was slightly put off by Murnick's voice as the surviving friend. She comes off as a self-involved narcissist and I usually love broken people! Anywho, not a bad book. I was really enjoying it before I spoiled it for myself, but once I knew what I knew, the wind in my sails died.

La-dee-dah.

Since the author really didn't know the victim very well, the book ends up being about the author herself. Not very interesting. A bit too much "look at me, look at me".

I really enjoy true crime, but lately I've been drawn to reading about the victim's family and their friends in the aftermath of tragedy. I couldn't put this down because it's also about the power of female friendships and how we view ourselves in comparison to others. Highly recommend if you like true crime but need a break from all the (often gory) details. If you liked "Alligator Candy," you'll also enjoy this.
