2.5 stars

As a reader of mystery/thriller/suspense this was definitely different... told with a literature style, it did not feel like a suspense novel.

Another thing... I didn't even care who killed Lucinda. I was enjoying the flashbacks and character development, I almost forgot there was a killer on the loose until the end of the novel.

Great writing, boring plot for me. ( )

Definitely not a "happily ever after" book. Unfortunately, we all still live with the past childhood issues and bullies. A decent story and really torn between 3 & 4 stars. ( )

This book explores lives in a suburban Colorado town after the unimaginable murder of a beloved high school student. One of my more enjoyable recent reads, I really raced through this one, frequently finding myself unable to put it down.
Told in short snippets from the perspectives of three main characters, the book moves almost imperceptibly, yet powerfully, portraying how life in this sleepy town is forever changed during the days and weeks following the shocking incident. ( )

This is another book that should be marketed as YA as the main character is in high school. The young author's style of writing reminds me quite a bit of John Green, especially his book Looking for Alaska. Both books have excellent prose and plot, the main difference being that the Girl in Snow dies at the beginning book and most of John Green's characters die at end of his books. It's an interesting read, and would be a good gift for teenager. ( )

Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka is a dark and brooding novel that revolves around the murder of fifteen year old Lucinda Hayes. Although there is an ongoing investigation to catch the killer, this is not a typical whodunit; it instead reads as character study of the story's three narrators.

Lucinda is a popular student and the news of her murder sends shockwaves through the community. Fellow classmate Cameron Whitley is rather troubled and his crush on Lucinda has become a full-blown obsession. Cameron has an unsavory habit of peering into other people's (including Lucinda's) windows under the cover of darkness. However his behavior in regards to Lucinda crosses the line into stalking and while this is somewhat creepy, does his unhealthy fixation on her make him a killer?

Classmate Jade Dixon-Burns has an extremely unhappy home life due to an alcoholic mother and checked out father. She loathes Lucinda with every fiber of her being and she has resorted to a voodoo curse to exact her revenge on her nemesis. Obviously Lucinda's death is not from voodoo but did Jade's extreme dislike drive her to murder?

Local police Officer Russ Fletcher did not know the victim but he is connected to the case by two of the suspects. In a strange twist of fate, Fletcher's first partner was Cameron's dad who, for unknown reasons has mysteriously (and perhaps, ominously) vanished from town. Russ wants to carry out his ex-partner's request to watch over Cameron, so he is a bit conflicted throughout the investigation. His tie to another suspect is much closer to his own troubled home which does nothing to alleviate the very real possibility that he will try to deflect attention away from Cameron during the investigation.

Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka focuses more on the novel's narrators than the actual investigation into Lucinda's murder. The pacing of the novel is slow since Jade, Cameron and Russ are mostly lost in self-absorbed introspection. None of the narrators are particularly likable or interesting and although Lucinda's murder is solved, this feels more like an afterthought to the ongoing drama of the three principal characters.
