The Girl in the Park

Wild Wendy Geller was always known in the hallways as the party girl. That was before they found her body in Central Park and she became the dead girl instead. As Wendy’s violent death reverberates through the lives of her fellow high schoolers, it impacts her former best friend Rain most of all. Rain, painfully shy and perpetually worrying about her speech impediments from a repaired cleft palate, knows that there is something that the reporters and police aren’t telling the public. Wendy may have been a party girl, but she was smart enough not to find herself alone in the park at night.

What could have drawn her there that fateful night? Could her murderer be someone that Rain knows…perhaps even a fellow student?

 Rain struggles to unravel the mystery behind her friend’s death, seeking to bring the killer to justice so everyone can move on from the tragedy. The Girl in the Park is a gritty and chilling look at violence against young women for mature readers, and the twists and turns will leave you wondering whatever happened to Wendy Geller.

 224 pages. Recommended by Molly Crumbley, Librarian, Maryland, USA.
