Sharp Objects posted by Robyn

Sharp Objects, written by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, features Camille Preaker as a newspaper reporter assigned to her hometown eight years after leaving it with good riddance.  A young girl was found murdered the previous year, and now another one has gone missing.  Camille is hesitant to return to her dysfunctional family.  Her younger sister died many years ago from a mysterious illness.  Her mother has a second husband and a 13-year-old daughter, a half-sister Camille doesn’t know well.  Camille does not feel welcome in her childhood home, and is struggling with her own addictions and self-harmful behavior while she finds herself not just reporting but investigating the disappearances of the two young girls.  This title is also available in audio.   HBO developed Sharp Objects into an award-winning series starring Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson – it is available on DVD.
