This is a very compelling book that draws you in and somehow keeps your interest throughout. The author has a great writing style but this is not edge of your seat material. Three children are involved in a very bizarre act that leaves a 13 year old girl with one eye. The other is shot out with a BB gun by a 14 year old boy while their 12 year old friend hid and watched. The initial act/crime in this book is far less then my expectations. From the book's description I expected a much darker set up for a secret that was held for 26 years.
The story unfolds slowly (but not boringly by any far stretch). It is told by each of the three people involved from each perspective. There is some repetition of incidents but there is variation with each retelling. It's not until the last hour of the book that everything comes together and the entire truth of events leading up to and following the BB gun incident are revealed.
Narration was excellent.
I recommend this book but more as fiction not a suspense.

I picked this up on a recommendation from Kyle MacLachlan on Instagram. Why not? I was hoping for more of a weird Twin Peaks vibe, probably because of that. This book was very much a real-world sort of story. The writing was vivid and descriptive. The characters were a little bland to me, but in a real-world real-person sort of way. I felt enough for them that their ultimate fates made me sad. The narration was also solid. Not my favorite book, but not bad overall.
