#amreading - Ghost Girls, Cath Ferla

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I've been shuffling this book up the stack for a while now, and somehow it keeps not quite making it to the top. Which is so annoying, that sometimes you have to knock the whole teetering pile to the floor and read what you bloody well want to read.

From the Blurb:

Ghost Girls

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

'Get on with things. That was how Wendy had met her death. She'd been hiding something and no one had noticed. Everyone had been too busy getting on with things. Sophie knew this pattern like a favourite tune. Move on, get on. Make a ghost.'
