Gone Girl meets Mean Girls in this sharp and clever thriller from the publishers of The Never List
Hollywood It Girl Janie Jenkins has it all.
The looks, the brains, the money, the fame.
Oh, and the murder conviction – for killing her mother.
Out of jail and on the run, she’s determined to prove her innocence and find out what really happened the night her mother died.
The only problem?
Janie’s not totally sure that she is innocent…
Jane Jenkins, the heroine of Little's assured fiction debut, single-mindedly pursues one goal when she's released from a California women's prison. After serving 10 years of her sentence for the 2003 murder of her mother, socialite and philanthropist Marion Elsinger, she wants desperately to find out if she was indeed the culprit. Public opinion, led by the media and including crime blogger Trace Kessler, strongly leans toward belief in her guilt. Armed with a false persona, Jane disappears from the public eye and even her lawyer's protection to follow the slimmest of leads into her secretive, tempestuous mother's mysterious past in tiny, decaying Adeline, S.Dak., and its mirror community of Ardelle. Little (Trip of the Tongue: Cross-Country Travels in Search of America's Languages) effectively intersperses outside perspective in the form of emails, text messages, and other communications in Jane's entertainingly caustic first-person narrative (e.g., "Multi-tools are like insults, girls you should always have one on hand").
