Review by Lucy
Fiona Sheridan is haunted by the murder of her older sister twenty years ago and simply cannot help herself from pondering the details of that fateful night ad nauseam. As her sister’s death anniversary comes up, Fiona finds out that the decrepit school where her sister’s body was dumped is being renovated. Little does Fiona know what other horrors haunt the halls of Idelwild Hall. The parallel stories of Fiona searching for the truth and the lives of girls in the 1950s at Idlewild Hall are gripping and intense. Intricately woven together, the two tales of broken girls bring to the forefront all the ills of an idealized New England town. The Broken Girls is a page-turner that will keep the reader hooked until the very end.
