5 Reasons It’s a Good Idea to Read A GOOD IDEA

SHARE

Right now we’re loving Cristina Moracho’s A Good Idea, a suspenseful mystery that will keep you turning the pages late into the night. But that’s not the only reason we can’t stop talking about this book–it’s also a heartbreaking tale of friendship, secrets, and the quest for revenge. We’re giving you five of our favorite reasons to read A Good Idea, inspired by bloggers who have read and loved A Good Idea!

 

 

The 90s

“A GOOD IDEA was set in the 90s and the author handled that really well. If it weren’t set in the 90s the book would have been a lot different…Time period definitely added a spark to the novel!” – Novel Ink

 

The Setting

“The description of the setting was vivid and real. I felt like I was in Maine with Fin.” – Twinning for Books

 

The Characters

“The characters are more than just pieces to a puzzle; they’re real people facing real consequences and feeling real grief. Betty was more than just a victim and Finley was more than just her sidekick.” – Pretty Deadly Blog

 

The Way it Makes You Think

“This book was fascinating on multiple levels. I know that socioeconomic status, attractivity level, charisma, and intelligence are all factors in how we are perceived, but I never considered those factors on a criminal level.” – Live to Read

 

The Mystery

“There is a strong mystery element to this story and the readers are sent on a journey of really trying to learn who Betty was and what she was going through in the months before her death (?) and what really ended up happening to her.” – Writing My Own Fairytale
