finished reading

This book is like a true-crime podcast. I liked the format and use of multi-media.  I liked that the clues are revealed to the reader as they are uncovered by Pippa and Ravi. I liked that Pip is intelligent and focused and loves her friends and family.  I liked that Ravi is sweet, charming, and kind.  And I liked their platonic relationship, it seemed natural. I liked how the parents are caring and not neglectful dolts.  I didn't like the tremendous amount of detail that makes it a bit draggy.  I'm curious to see where the sequel goes. I listened to the audio and loved the full cast narration.

From the publisher:
The case is closed. Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it.

But having grown up in the same small town that was consumed by the murder, Pippa Fitz-Amobi isn't so sure. When she chooses the case as the topic for her final year project, she starts to uncover secrets that someone in town desperately wants to stay hidden. And if the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth?

There should be a trigger warning: Animal death, mentions of sexual assault, drug dealing, drink spiking, mentions of suicide, kidnapping and imprisonment, racism, mentions of revenge porn, student/teacher relationship, past parental death, past car accident, violence
