Girl in Snow Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Who are you when no one is watching?
When beloved high school student Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no-one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched - not the boy who loved her too much; not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the police officer assigned to investigate. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three indelible characters - Cameron, Jade, and Russ - must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth, or both.
In crystalline prose, Danya Kukafka explores the razor-sharp line between love and obsession, between watching and seeing, between reality and memory. Intoxicating and emotionally intense, Girl in Snow is a gripping debut novel that will linger long after the final chapter.

Kukafka’s beautiful writing however, had me highlighting phrase after phrase. Sentence after sentence. At the same time I realised I wouldn’t be able to use most in my review as they’re too ‘telling’. They give too much away about our characters and the plot.
The book opens just after Lucinda’s body is found. We’re in the heads of three characters: teenagers Cameron and Jade and police officer Russell Fletcher. And we pop in and out of their interconnected stories throughout the novel.
In reality this book felt (to me) mostly to be about Cameron and Jade. Both are outcasts and highly creative. Cameron is an artist and draws Lucinda repeatedly.
Jade writes screenplays and parts of the unfolding plot are reflected in her creations. It’s through them we learn what she’d like her family and friends to say and do. Reality is quite different.
Kukafka does a great job of keeping us guessing. We’re privy to a information about our characters and things they know about others. At times the circumstances surrounding Lucinda’s murder seem obvious. Other times less so.
This book is about love, loss and grief. It’s about vulnerability. It’s about the disenfranchised and the fact many of us feel unable to be who we really are. And it’s about the bravery of those who do so.
This book came as a huge surprise to me. The plot is complex and intriguing. The characters are impossible not to love and sometimes painfully exposed. And the writing is beautiful. It’s Kukafka’s first novel and I can’t wait for more from this talented writer and storyteller.
