Year 10, Book 30

30. You Can Trust Me by Sophie McKenzie

Livy finds her best friend Julia dead in her apartment. Everyone else is convinced it was a suicide, but Livy becomes convinced that Julia was actually murdered and by the same person who murdered her sister many years before. Her quest to clear her friend’s name and also catch her murderer alienates her from her family and leads her on a dangerous quest teaming up with the secret boyfriend she discovered Julia had.

I found this book rather clumsy. Characters are specifically set up to be red herrings in an obvious way while the actual killer sort of comes out of nowhere. I didn’t find this a very well written mystery, which is a shame because I really enjoyed McKenzie’s last book. I give it a 6 out of 10.
