Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything.
So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name? Does she even want to?
Edgy and gripping, Please Ignore Vera Dietz is an unforgettable novel: smart, funny, dramatic, and always surprising.
I actually own three A.S. King books that I need to read. This book sounds exactly like something I would like. It’s also not too often that I read a funny book and this is described as funny in the synopsis. Finally, the fact that it has a decent rating on Goodreads and quite a few of my friends on Goodreads have read it and really enjoyed it.
