The Good Girl

by Mary Kubica

Review by Mrs. Dillard

The book, The Good Girl, is told in alternating chapters and alternating points-of-view. It is about a murder gone wrong.


Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, at first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.


This is a great book that delves into the prospective of a kidnapped person, and how, psychologically, they can start to have feelings for their kidnapper.
