Recommended Reads: Sharp Objects

Recommended Reads: Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (FIC FLY)

To say that journalist Camille Preaker has serious issues is an understatement. Fresh out of a stay in a mental hospital for carving words into her flesh with a razor, Camille is sent on assignment to her home town of Wind Gap, Missouri ("one of those crummy towns prone to misery") to write about the murders of two young girls. While there Camille is forced to interact with her dysfunctional family and confront the her troubled past. This lurid thriller is a cross between V.C. Andrews and Chuck Palahniuk and features a propulsive plot that will keep you turning the pages to find out what creepy secret will be revealed next.
