Sharp Objects by Gillian FlynnLibrarians Note: this is an alternate cover edition - ISBN 10: 0307341550 (ISBN 13: 9780307341556)
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 neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to 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 familys 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 own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

How the “Sharp Objects” Finale Sums Up the Show’s Excellent Feel-Badness
The heroine was emerging as heroic: Camille Preaker Amy Adams had vanquished a monster, rescued a maiden, and composed a clean start at personal salvation. Then the show snatched the promise away and crushed it. It reverted to form, closing on a gratifying note of festering unease. To review: Camille had sloughed back to her home town as a newspaper reporter covering the murders of teen-age girls and, also, as a self-harming alcoholic returning to the scene of crimes against her innocence. Her attempted reckoning with evil and trauma had dragged her through the gutter. Camille hurtles toward her ancestral home to save her half sister Amma Eliza Scanlen from the same doom. She consents to be fed her poisonous home remedy; soon, she is dazed and frail.
