On a fateful summer morning in 1986, two eleven-year-old girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, they will both be charged with murder. Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside vacation town when her investigation leads her to interview carnival cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it’s the first time they’ve seen each other since that dark day so many years ago. Now with new, vastly different lives—and unknowing families to protect—will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden? 

Wowsers!  Phew, JUST finished it and wanted to get my review done.  This book was excellent!  I totally enjoyed it.

Jade and Bel are two misfits, one from the wrong side of the tracks, the other an unwanted inconvenience in her mother's new well to do life and family.  The two connect on one fateful day and nothing is ever the same for either. 

Fast forward to present time and these girls have been given new lives where no one knows their true identity. They are ironically thrown together at a tourist beachside town where someone is killing young girls.  Amber works at the amusement park and Kirsty is a reporter.  Both are stunned to see each other for the first time since they'd been in court.  

How will they handle this?  What really happened that fateful day?  Were they really Wicked Girls?  Well, you'll just have to read it for yourself ;)

I loved it!  This book had me angry, nervous, sympathetic, and sad.  My emotions ran the  gambit and that is absolute aces in my book :)  I felt for each girl willing everything to be perfect for them somehow.  Great characters.  Some that you just wanted to smash.   When a book gets your dander up you're going to enjoy the ride.  Highly recommend The Wicked Girls, you will NOT be disappointed!
