Set in an insular rural community steeped in silence and denial, So Much Pretty explores every parent's greatest fear - that their child will be hurt. But it also examines a second, equally troubling question: what if my child hurts someone else? Through the eyes of journalist Stacy Flynn, Hoffman meticulously details the disappearance and murder of nineteen-year-old Wendy White. Flynn's intense crusade to expose a killer draws the attention of a precocious local girl, Alice Piper, whose story intertwines with Wendy's in a spellbinding and unexpected climax.
