Broken Girls, The

Simone St. James
A breakout suspense novel from the award-winning author of The Haunting of Maddy Clare. Vermont, 1950. There's a place for the girls whom no one wants--the troublemakers, the illegitimate, the too smart for their own good. It's called Idlewild Hall. And in the small town where it's located, there are rumors that the boarding school is haunted. Four roommates bond over their whispered fears, their budding friendship blossoming--until one of them mysteriously disappears. . . . Vermont, 2014. As much as she's tried, journalist Fiona Sheridan cannot stop revisiting the events surrounding her older sister's death. Twenty years ago, her body was found lying in the overgrown fields near the ruins of Idlewild Hall. And though her sister's boyfriend was tried and convicted of murder, Fiona can't shake the suspicion that something was never right about the case. When Fiona discovers that Idlewild Hall is being restored by an anonymous benefactor, she decides to write a story about it. But a shocking discovery during the renovations will link the loss of her sister to secrets that were meant to stay hidden in the past--and a voice that won't be silenced. . . .

It was kind of slow in the beginning but picked up near the middle. Good twist at the end. Thought it was so obvious in the beginning that it was the ghost but it wasn’t. Wish it told the story from Sonia view of the day she died and why she left her relatives early. Otherwise liked the different chapters from the girls view while the other chapters where in present time for Fiona and Jamie.
