The Roanoke Girls
Engel, Amy. The Roanoke Girls. New York: Crown, 2017.
When Lane Roanoke's mother commits suicide, she is sent to live with her grandparents in Kansas. Unfortunately she finds dark family secrets. She grew up with cousin Allegra. Lane runs as far away as she can to Los Angeles. She is called home when Allegra goes missing. Unfortunately I did not like this novel. I tried to stick with it, but when I got to a section where profanity was overused, I just could not tolerate it any longer. Other readers might enjoy this more than I did, but I couldn't even finish the book. I received an advance electronic copy of the book from the publisher through NetGalley for review purposes.
