The summer before my senior year of high school I lost a friend of mine. It was a terrible shock to everyone that knew and loved him. I remember my friends grieving together and trying to make sense of the loss. Traumatic events leave a mark on the fabric of your life. It is a hurt that diminishes but is never forgotten.
The discovery of Wendy Geller's lifeless body in a park leaves a group of friends and fellow students reeling over the death of their friend in THE GIRL IN THE PARK. Each person deals with the death differently, but is ultimately changed forever by her senseless and tragic death. THE GIRL IN THE PARK was an emotional journey for me and forced me to recall past memories. The story is remarkably written. I found myself getting so engrossed in the story reading well into the night. This mystery will keep you turning pages and rooting for the truth to come to light.
When Wendy Geller's body is found in Central Park after the night of a rager, newspaper headlines scream, "Death in the Park: Party Girl Found Strangled." But shy Rain, once Wendy's best friend, knows there was more to Wendy than just "party girl." As she struggles to separate the friend she knew from the tangle of gossip and headlines, Rain becomes determined to discover the truth about the murder. Written in a voice at once immediate, riveting, and utterly convincing, Mariah Frederick's mystery brilliantly exposes the cracks in this exclusive New York City world and the teenagers that move within it.
