Staff Reviews


When teenager Lucinda Hayes is found murdered in her suburban town, all eyes shift to her quiet and decidedly different neighbor, Cameron Whitley. But in this perfectly-paced, suspenseful novel, the reader is kept guessing of the true nature of their connection and helps us realize that what we see on the surface might not always be the truth.  Danya Kukafka’s breakout debut will grab you early on and propel you to the finish where you just want to re-read it all over again. 

— Casey

Danya Kukafka’s debut novel ticks so many of my good-read boxes: Beautifully written; well-paced; great character development; and then, more specifically, multiple points of view and intertwining story lines. Told from three distinct perspectives, Girl in Snow takes different paths to the same ending as each character passes by, circles around, and eventually collides with the others as this small Colorado town deals with the aftermath of the homicide of a local teen.

August 2017 Indie Next List


“Perfectly paced and completely compelling, Girl in Snow by newcomer Danya Kukafka immerses you in a chilling small-town tale in which star high-school student Lucinda Hayes is found dead on a school playground. Most clues point to Cameron, an obsessed, window-peeping classmate who often lives in an 'alternate' state of mind. Conflicting clues come from the backstories of classmate Jade, the questionably motivated policeman Russ, and Cameron himself. Readers will be spellbound and remain puzzled as the characters expose the town's secrets. Told in spare, haunting prose, this is a not-to-be-missed story!”

Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List


“High school student Lucinda Hayes was loved, worshipped, and…hated. And now she’s dead. But who’s responsible? Her hometown is thrown into anguish at the loss of their sparkling hope. And yet those who knew her best have their own stories to tell, and not all of their memories support Lucinda’s image. Can Officer Russ Fletcher discover the truth in the midst of his own painful memories? This is an impressive, riveting debut by an author with real talent. We’ll see more from her in the future. I can’t wait!”
— Linda Bond, Auntie's Bookstore, Spokane, WA

Description


WHO ARE YOU WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING? When a beloved high schooler named Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched -- not the boy who loved her too much; not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the officer assigned to investigate her murder.
