This Secret Thing is a powerful story of friendship and sisterhood, and I fell into Whalen’s vision of a tightknit Raleigh community willingly and easily I could see the houses with their shaded windows, feel the sense of people watching, wondering what their neighbors were really up to Sometimes it’s a big risk to start out a novel with the biggest secret revealed right up front, yet it very much works with This Secret Thing The world as we/the characters know it is exploded in a way that feels apocalyptic, then the pieces must be put back together The novel is a fascinating mix of both world rebuilding and the solving of a mystery I was especially moved by Casey’s storyline It felt unexpected and surprising, and I found myself cheering for her from the moment she came onstage Whalen has superior character building skills There isn’t one character in the novel that wasn’t utterly believable and compelling A terrific story with a satisfying sense of drama and mystery.
