I tend to enjoy books written from multiple perspectives and Wild and Crooked by Leah Thomas is no exception. The two main characters are both misfits, although for wildly different reasons. Drawn together without really knowing each other's backstory, Kalyn and Gus become friends. It's great to get fully invested in this platonic friendship that is just as deep as any typical teenage love story. As Kalyn and Gus find out more about each other's family history, they begin to question their own friendship. Maybe the conflicting truths they were raised to believe are not so true after all. An amazing story of murder, guilt, innocence, truth, lies, social biases, and the implications those long-held, often unfounded, beliefs can have on multiple generations.
