In this fictional account, Anne Cassidy lets us into the mind and heart of an ordinary girl whose life might not be quite as ordinary as outsiders believe. As Alice’s story unravels, my preconceived ideas about young children committing serious crimes did too. Looking for JJ grabbed me by the throat and wouldn’t leave me alone.
It’s a perfect read for lovers of mystery, crime and suspense.
If you love Looking for JJ, make sure you also grab a copy of the sequel, Finding Jennifer Jones.
