I have been a huge fan of Ruth Ware from the her first book to this one. She is an amazing storyteller and I always love that moment I settle in with her new book in audio or paper form. The It Girl was yet another novel of hers that had me in its grip from the first word to the last and I struggled to put it aside to take care of anything else.
There are several characters in this novel but Hannah is the narrator of the tale. The It Girl was her friend April when they were in school but tragedy strikes and April is gone. Someone is put in jail for her murder and years later, after Hannah is married, he dies and this sets off a chain of events due to a reporter digging into it again. This leaves Hannah questioning everything that happened. Did they arrest the right person? She doesn’t know. As she delves deeper and deeper into the past the one thing that becomes clear is that she never really knew the people who surrounded her that she called friends.
I listened to the audio format of course and it was fabulous! It is narrated by Imogen Church and she was amazing. I didn’t expect anything else as she is one of my favourite narrators. She’s great with portraying different characters and using different voices and it adds so much to the story. I always love any novel she narrates and she made The It Girl all the better!
If you love a good psychological thriller you’ve got to read one of Ruth Ware’s novels and The It Girl is a great place to start. It’s one of my favourites of hers so far!
