Dear Daughter

Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little is... well, it's definitely different. Partly murder mystery, partly a celebrity magazine, partly a juvenile version of Bridget Jones's diary (not that Bridget Jones is not already juvenile), this is nevertheless a gripping read.

What I enjoyed:

  • the unusual premise (daughter unsure whether she did or did not murder her mother)
  • the writing voice
  • the short chapters
  • the fast pace
  • the unpredictability
  • the unobtrusive sprinkling of Native Americans
  • the unusual setting
What I wasn't crazy about:
  • the excessive swearing
  • the unsympathetic heroine
  • the ending
I think it's a book everybody should read.
