Girl, 11 by Amy Suiter Clarke
If you loved the first season of Serial, I’ll be Gone in the Dark, and Only Murders in the Building, then this is your next must-listen. It’s a psychological suspense tale whose protagonist, Elle, uses her true crime podcast “Justice Delayed” to investigate and solve cold cases. We were hooked right out of the gate. We loved the pacing and revelations of this book while listening to the Justice Delayed podcast episodes come to life. Girl, 11 explores ethical questions around the proliferation of true-crime podcasts and armchair investigators. Which hit a little too close to home.
