THE GIRL I USED TO BE, by April Henry

Girl

The story: When Ariel Benson was three years old, her parents were murdered before her eyes. She was the only witness. Now 17, and using her adopted name of Olivia Reinhart, she returns to the tiny town where the gruesome events took place, determined to find out who did it. Little does she expect that the person is still there, waiting to spring into action if the wrong person every shows up–specifically, the girl Olivia used to be.

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Even though the main character is a girl, both boys and girls who like a good mystery will enjoy this one!
