6. Some Die Young by Jeanne Hart

Summary: In the town of Bay Cove, nothing really happens. Then a twelve year old girl, Lisa, goes missing and if later found to have been murdered. The police, her friends and friends of the family try to go on but are a little apprehensive. The main suspect is an older man. Meredith, Lisa's close friend, starts a journal where she wishes to be the next Anne Frank. She begins talking in her journal about an older man she has been spending her time with. Marriages start falling apart, jobs are on the line and people are falling in and out of love all over the place. Can the police find out who killed Lisa before he gets to another girl, or even Meredith?

Review: This is a mystery novel. Usually I like mysteries, but this book wasn't that great. It took me a while to get through it and I almost gave up on it. There were so many characters and the story was told from many people's viewpoints. I was happy to find out that I had guessed correctly on who killed Lisa but it was sort of a lucky pick. Either I missed the clues that were mounting against the killer, I didn't care enough or Hart hadn't included anything to really point to this person. But, hey, I finished it and I can see why my library sold this book to me for a quarter or less.
