Review of The It Girl by Ruth Ware (hardcover)




The It Girl by Ruth Ware


April Coutts-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford.

Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends—Will, Hugh, Ryan, and Emily—during their first term. By the end of the second, April was dead.

Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah’s world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April’s death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide… including a murder.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of One by One returns with an unputdownable mystery following a woman on the search for answers a decade after her friend’s murder.




This is my favorite Ruth Ware book so far. The story pulled me in right away and I found it hard to put down. I kept going back and forth on who I thought the murderer was. There’s not a lot I can say without giving away the plot. I liked Hannah and really felt for her. She never got over April’s death. I honestly wasn’t a huge fan of Will from the beginning and I’m not sure why. I did like most of the characters though. I also liked the addition of a character that came in later. The pacing was good and I just enjoyed everything about the book.

I gave this book 5 stars.
