The Last Summer of the Camperdowns by Elizabeth Kelly

This book took me a while to get into because the writing is too descriptive. It tries too hard. However, the story is captivating and leaves you spinning many “what if” questions. My friends and I read this novel a few months ago, and we still talk about it. To be clear though, we believe all the novel’s resulting spins may be more accidental—given the quality of writing—than intentional. Regardless, Kelly tells of how pre-teen Riddle witnesses a murder and how her reaction affects the lives of her loved ones, particularly her father’s, Camper’s. His character along with his daughter’s comes to light in this hard-to-put-down book.
