Berkeley student Roberta Lee went running with her lover Bradley Page in 1984. Page came back alone and Roberta's battered body was found five weeks later. Within hours, Page confessed to Roberta's murder--and then recanted. Written by Roberta's closest friend, this haunting, multi-layered work is a superb collage of memory, loss, and redemption. Illustrated throughout.

Review: The Dead Girl

User Review  - Goodreads

I really wanted to like this book which is probably why I suffered through three quarters of it. Don't make that mistake. This book isn't very good. It's repetitive, whiny, and exhausting to read. Read full review
