In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called this YA mystery a "haunting psycological thriller" and "profound, provocative commentary on what it means to grow up in the age of Facebook."

When Wendy Geller's body is found in Central Park after the night of a rager, newspaper headlines scream,"Death in the Park: Party Girl Found Strangled." But shy Rain, once Wendy's best friend, knows there was more to Wendy than just "party girl." As she struggles to separate the friend she knew from the tangle of gossip and headlines, Rain becomes determined to discover the truth about the murder. Written in a voice at once immediate, riveting, and utterly convincing, Mariah Frederick's mystery brilliantly exposes the cracks in this exclusive New York City world and the teenagers that move within it.

this book was a great murder mystery kind of book but it also included a lot of character development which made this book really enjoyable to read. The Girl in the Park was a great novel and the killer was not cliche or obvious at all!!!

I guessed who did it about halfway in (but it was not obvious, and the mystery was good). It was a good book, but I did find the writing style was not my favourite and the story dragged on quite a bit.

It kept me guessing right up until the very end. Super good.
