"American Girl"

New from Blackstone Publishing: American Girl: A Novel by Wendy Walker.

About the book, from the publisher:

With a compelling and sympathetic narrator who may or may not become a suspect herself, this is a twisty mystery that you’ll never stop asking questions of. This is psychological suspense done right.

A pulse-pounding novel about a small-town business owner found dead and the teenage girl caught in the crosshairs, American Girl is the latest thriller from internationally bestselling author Wendy Walker.

Charlie Hudson, an autistic seventeen-year-old, is determined to leave Sawyer, PA, as soon as she graduates high school. In the meantime, she works as many hours as she can at a sandwich shop called the Triple S to save money for college. But when shop owner Clay Cooper—a man both respected and feared in their small, economically depressed town—is found dead, each member of his staff becomes a suspect in the perplexing case. Before she can go anywhere, Charlie must protect herself and her friends by uncovering the danger that is still lurking in their tight-knit community.

Based on the #1 bestselling audio, American Girl is a riveting thriller told through the eyes of an unforgettable protagonist.
