Summary
Based on an actual crime in 1955, this YA novel is at once a mystery and a coming-ofage story. The brutal murder of two teenage girls on the last day of Nora Cunningham<U+2019>s junior year in high school throws Nora into turmoil. Her certainties<U+2014>friendships, religion, her prudence, her resolve to find a boyfriend taller than she is<U+2014>are shaken or cast off altogether. Most people in Elmgrove, Maryland, share the comforting conviction that Buddy Novak, who had every reason to want his ex-girlfriend dead, is responsible for the killings. Nora agrees at first, then begins to doubt Buddy<U+2019>s guilt, and finally comes to believe him innocent<U+2014>the lone dissenting voice in Elmgrove. Told from several different perspectives, including that of the murderer, Mister Death<U+2019>s Blue-Eyed Girls is a suspenseful page-turner with a powerful human drama at its core
