9780099488460: The Strawberry Picker

Eighteen-year-old Jenna is sharing an apartment in Bröhl, Germany, with her friends Caro and Merle when a girl is killed nearby. The murder seems to have parallels with two other frightening crimes. Then one day Caro is found murdered stabbed seven times and with her necklace missing, just like the other girls. At the funeral Jenna swears revenge in front of everybody, and in turn attracts the attention of Nat, a handsome and mysterious strawberry picker. With Jenna sidetracked by love, Merle sets about solving Caro’s murder herself. But as the answer dawns on her, another horrifying reality emerges.

About the Author:

Monika Feth is a former journalist. Anthea Bell is the winner of the Marsh Award for Translation and the translator of the world-famous Asterix books.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 10 Up–When the book opens, the "Necklace Murderer" has already raped and killed several young women in the German countryside, stabbing each of them seven times, cutting their hair short, and taking their necklaces as trophies. The story unfolds from the viewpoints of the police investigator, potential victims, and the killer himself. Readers are clued in early to "the strawberry picker's" identity and motivation, alleviating the mystery. As another girl is murdered and her roommate/friend begins to fall for Nat, the suspense compels readers to the climax, anxiously trying to determine whether or not Jenna, whose mother is a famous crime writer, will survive. With complex characters and a suspenseful plot, the book will appeal to fans of thrillers, true crime stories, and television shows like Criminal Minds.Jessica Miller, New Britain Public Library, CT
