The Roanoke Girls

The Roanoke Girls: A Novel - Amy Engel

This book is not for everyone. There is a dark and disgusting secret in the Roanoke family and it completely takes over this book. From the start you can pretty much guess what the secret is but it is confirmed not that far into the book. I would have been able to get past that secret had the rest of the story and the characters interested me. I didn't like the main character, Lane, so it made it hard for me to want to read about her. Ultimately I felt like this book was so much about the shock that the plot and character development lacked.
