I think I came to the second book in the series too soon. There seemed to be a sameness which did not ignite my interest.
Millie is herself rather colorless. She has been too much in the critical eye of the
public - notorious to the point that she expects the calculated criticsm of the entire town
and she has retreated from her peers to just a couple of people and the inmates of the
home she volunteers at.
A contact from her teen years unravels a mystery, a blackmailing attempt and ultimately
flaws amongst those whom she considered teen buddies. This was a story about human
frailities rather than mysteries - from the need to be popular, to be attractive to the
lure of money above all lofty beliefs.
I liked the read from the point of the various characters and how they evolved from the
time they were teenagers, and to the way some people's characters never really change.
Especially self centred beings.
