Abigail Fairchild, a high school senior in a small Alabama town, inhabits a world shielded by her all-white school and her middle-class, conservative family, even during the turbulence of 1964.
Yet, on the same day she finds the body of a murdered girl, she's confronted with the stark reality that the struggle against prejudice is a collective concern, transcending boundaries.

I really enjoyed this story, especially the main character, Abi. The story really drew me, from the time period to the various twists and turns, that kept me guessing until the very end. I can't wait for the next Abi story!! If you love a great who-dun-it story, I highly recommending picking this one up. Five out of five stars!! This is from the original book (Quiet Refuge) and there are lots of good reviews. Silent Girls is new. No chance for reviews yet.

Another great mystery read. Loved solving the mystery as I went along and finding out the answer at the end wasn't quite what I was expecting. Can't wait to read more by this author in the future.
This was a great read! It was one thrill after another. It kept me hooked from the beginning! Being about to decide who do what through out the story was the best part! Great job Linda Tincu Peno!
I enjoyed this for what it was. It was interesting and moved at a good pace. It had a good amount of suspense and I didn't know how it was gonna end. Overall, this was a nice mystery that I would recommend. Special Thank You to Linda Tincu Peno, BooksGoSocial, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Kept me guessing until the very end, Abi and her life and story had me gripped from the very beginning. I also discovered lots of interesting history about the Deep South of America. The things that humans do to one another in the name of race and colour. We are all the same.
This is by far the best book I have read for a very long time. It is cram pack with content. So many times I thought I had reached that bit when as a reader you think you have got it only to find there was more and then more again.
Absolutely brilliant can’t wait to see what she writes next
Wow what a book thank you ever so much for the opportunity to review. I could not put it down. Would definitely recommend to others
Now where to begin with solent girls, it was a bit slow to begin with but it didn't stop me from continuing to read as I wanted to see where it was going to lead little me.
The characters were all picked to perfection, however, there were two a didn't like but glad they got what was coming.
Was some sad bits in this book which a didn't see coming but was all good.
The ending was also amazing also it was well written in my eyes.
Cannot wait to read more books from this amazing author, can't wait to see what else a can find.
This was a riveting, original tale set in the past when there was racial injustice. Although essentially a murder mystery novel, it is interesting to see the young adult characters begin to realise the adults have misled them about the treatment of parts of their community. I was fully drawn in to the storyline and plight of the characters for most of the book but felt let down towards the end when I felt the author fell into the trap of letting one character relate all that had happened in order to tie up loose ends.
I received this arc from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
The Silent Girls was easy to read. The mystery thriller that accompanied this book provided historical context, focusing on the period of civil rights. Rating 4/5.
Fantastic! Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Can’t wait to read more from this author. 5 stars
Thank you NetGalley for giving me the chance to read this book ahead of time in exchange for a review. It didn't disappoint! Must read!!
