Book Review: The It Girl by Ruth Ware

Ruth Ware is one of my favorite authors, and it seems like she just keeps getting better with every book. One by One was one of my favorite reads of 2021, and now The It Girl tops my list for 2022.

I always listen to Ruth Ware books because her narrator, Imogen Church, is my all-time favorite audiobook narrator! You can snag the audiobook here.

The “It Girl” is April Clarke-Cliveden, the first person our main character Hannah Jones meets as a freshman at Oxford. April is one of those people who makes every head turn when she walks in a room, and her magnetism is nearly impossible to resist.

Unfortunately, April doesn’t make it to sophomore year. When her convicted murderer dies in prison a decade later, a young journalist challenges everything Hannah thought she believed about April’s murder. Could her husband—who was first April’s boyfriend—be the key to unlocking what happened that night?

Hannah finds herself sucked back into April’s orbit as she searches for the truth. Was the right man convicted? Or was April hiding something that gave someone else a motive? Someone they all know.

Per usual, Ware will keep you guessing to the end on this one. The It Girl is yet another must-read (or rather, must-listen!) from one of my favorite authors.
