Dark Rooms; Lili Anolik

Dark RoomsDark Rooms by Lili Anolik
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I work near Hartford so spent a lot of time trying to figure out which school this was based on (I think I know, but there are some things that just don't fit) - kudos to the author for not being as obvious about which school she's based Chandler on. As for the mystery part, that was a little less well done. For example, Grace's job? In this day and age, it would be the IT department who do the projection set-ups (and at a school like Chandler, each classroom would have a permanent set-up) and the videos stored in the library. So the school's credibility? Hmmm... Clearly this was just a device to get Grace into the school so she could snoop. And that's before we get into the dorms, the faculty relationships and how they handled Nica's death. Also didn't buy her other job, working for the bail bondsman.

As for the mother? Words fail.
