About ‘A Good Idea’
Fin and Betty were best friends, and their friendship endured Fin’s ninth-grade move from their coastal Maine town to Manhattan. Calls, letters, and summer visits bound them together, and they’d both applied to NYU, planning to be roommates. Then, the fall of their senior year, Betty is murdered. Her killer confesses, but his testimony is thrown out. The whole town begins to think he was coerced, and that Betty has simply disappeared. Fin knows the truth, and the summer before college — her last summer in Maine — she is determined to bring her best friend’s murderer to justice. But Williston is a town full of secrets, nothing is as it appears, and everyone, including Fin, has an agenda. This whip-smart, tense thriller proves that Cristina Moracho is no flash in the pan: she has talent to burn.
