Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.
Quotes from Sharp Objects
The face you give the world tells the world how to treat you.
Problems always start long before you really, really see them.
I just think some women aren’t made to be mothers. And some women aren’t made to be daughters.
Sometimes if you let people do things to you, you’re really doing it to them.
