I cannot overstate how exquisitely Jess Lourey writes the awkwardness, the heady sense of occasional power, and the awareness of your body and the pisssed off, creeped out feeling you got when grown men checked you out, like you were something to be looked at for their pleasure and nevermind how uncomfortable and angry it made you, and the fear that came along with being a teen girl.
This author’s consistent finely written works have made me an impressed and happily-reading fan.
I definitely recommend this.

Killers hiding in plain sight. Small-town secrets. A girl who knows too much. From the Amazon Charts bestselling author of Unspeakable Things and Bloodline comes a nerve-twisting novel inspired by a shocking true crime.
Minnesota, 1977. For the teens of one close-knit community, summer means late-night swimming parties at the quarry, the county fair, and venturing into the tunnels beneath the city. But for two best friends, it’s not all fun and games.
Heather and Brenda have a secret. Something they saw in the dark. Something they can’t forget. They’ve decided to never tell a soul. But their vow is tested when their friend disappears—the second girl to vanish in a week. And yet the authorities are reluctant to investigate.
Heather is terrified that the missing girls are connected to what she and Brenda stumbled upon that night. Desperately searching for answers on her own, she learns that no one in her community is who they seem to be. Not the police, not the boys she met at the quarry, not even her parents. But she can’t stop digging because she knows those girls are in danger.
She also knows she’s next.
