Can the right kind of boy get away with killing the wrong kind of girl?
Fin and Betty’s close friendship survived Fin’s ninth-grade move from their coastal Maine town to Manhattan. Calls, letters, and summer visits continued to bind them together, and in the fall of their senior year, they both applied to NYU, planning to reunite for good as roommates.
Then Betty disappears. Her ex-boyfriend Calder admits to drowning her, but his confession is thrown out, and soon the entire town believes he was coerced and Betty has simply run away. Fin knows the truth, and she returns to Williston for one final summer, determined to get justice for her friend, even if it means putting her loved ones—and herself—at risk.
But Williston is a town full of secrets, where a delicate framework holds everything together, and Fin is not the only one with an agenda. How much is she willing to damage to get her revenge and learn the truth about Betty’s disappearance, which is more complicated than she ever imagined—and infinitely more devastating?

I stumbled across A Good Idea when I was perusing the bookstore. The haunting cover was enough stop me in my tracks but it was the mysterious premise that wrapped its fingers around me and lured me in. I am a sucker for a good thriller and A Good Idea did not disappoint.

The writing was excellent. Cristina Moracho delivered a bold cast of characters that stood strong on their own. She intertwined these strong characters with a dark and twisted tale. You think everyone knows everything in small towns, but Moracho put that assumption to bed. Even in the smallest of towns secrets can find the darkest of corners and hide.

Aside from the great writing, I think what I loved most about A Good Idea was its ability to stand out among other "Young Adult" novels. Moracho didn't shy away from what others may call racy or risque. There is sex, drugs and murder and it's YOUNG ADULT. I loved that about this book!

I read and enjoyed Althea and Oliver which is another book by Cristina Moracho, but I found that Moracho really found her way with A Good Idea. It felt like a more authentic reading experience.

A Good Idea definitely satisfied by thriller sweet tooth and left me with a major book hangover! Although it's a decent 370 pages, I flew through it, simply not able to put it down. You will devour it hungrily, dying to know what the real truth is!

  1. YES!! I am so happy to hear that this was an awesome thriller. I'm always on the lookout for those and when I saw this cover a while back, I was INTRIGUED-- but then I hadn't heard much about it after that, so I've just kind of been wondering about it. I'm definitely going to order this next time I do a book order :)
