Beautiful Broken Girls
From Savage, the author of After the Woods (2016) comes a haunting novel about two teenage sisters, Mira and Francesca Cillo, who drown themselves in a quarry lake, and the boy who loved one of them. Before she died, Mira allowed Ben Lattanzi to touch seven parts of her body, in seven different locations. Seven days after her death, Ben receives a letter from Mira challenging him to find the seven cryptic notes hidden in the places where they secretly touched. He becomes enamored with the notion of reconnecting with Mira, whom he briefly dated but long adored. As Ben uncovers each note, he starts to unravel why the sisters chose to end their lives, their secrets, and just how complicated their bonds with the outside world were.
