No one knows what happened that morning at River Point. Five boys went hunting. Four came back. The boys won’t say who fired the shot that killed their friend; the evidence shows it could have been any one of them.

Kate Marino’s senior year internship at the District Attorney’s Office isn’t exactly glamorous—more like an excuse to leave school early that looks good on college applications. Then the DA hands her boss, Mr. Stone, the biggest case her small town of Belle Terre has ever seen. The River Point Boys are all anyone can talk about. Despite their damning toxicology reports the morning of the accident, the DA wants the boys’ case swept under the rug. He owes his political office to their powerful families.

Kate won’t let that happen. Digging up secrets without revealing her own is a dangerous line to walk; Kate has her own reasons for seeking justice for Grant. As she and Stone investigate—the ageing prosecutor relying on Kate to see and hear what he cannot—she realizes that nothing about the case—or the boys—is what it seems. Grant wasn’t who she thought he was, and neither is Stone’s prime suspect. As Kate gets dangerously close to the truth, it becomes clear that the early morning accident might not have been an accident at all—and if Kate doesn’t uncover the true killer, more than one life could be on the line…including her own.

It's the turn for a mystery book! I've always like the mystery/thriller genre but I am picky with the books I choose within the genre too. I was surprised and curious about this one because there aren't many YA books based on crime solving so I am very excited for this one! Has anyone read This Is Our Story? It's currently 4 stars on Goodreads. I haven't read any early reviews so I cannot say much about it but it caught my eye and will definitely be adding it to my TBR.

Are you guys into mystery/crime? Do you like the cover? I like it. I like the stag in white with dark blue background :)

Are you excited about This Is Our Story?
