Sharp Objects

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment:  she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.  For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her mother or the half-sister she barely knows:  a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town.  Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims – a bit too strongly.  Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her past if she wants to get the story – and survive this homecoming.
