A pulse-pounding novel about a small-town business owner found dead and the teenage girl caught in the crosshairs, American Girl is the latest thriller from international best-selling author Wendy Walker.
Charlie Hudson, an autistic 17-year-old, is determined to leave Sawyer, PA, as soon as she graduates high school - in the meantime, she works as many hours as she can at a sandwich shop called The Triple S to save money for college. But when shop owner Clay Cooper - a man who is both respected and feared by many in this economically depressed community - is found dead, each member of his staff becomes a suspect in the perplexing case. Charlie must work to protect herself and her friends and uncover the danger that may still be at large in their tightknit community.
Best-selling author Wendy Walker returns with another riveting thriller, told through the eyes of an unforgettable protagonist.

Great book about an autistic girl and her story
I loved listening to it. Paige does a very great job here. She herself is autistic and she brings the authenticity to Charlie's character. I listen to her videos and she manages to talk as Charlie as she does talk as herself and it is very convincing.
I am autistic myself and could see some aspects that I struggle with myself and understand the others. I think the author made a good job in portraying an autistic girl.
The story is interesting and intense and I did not see coming what did come. Great surprises and events.
Also I liked that some chapters were performed as a radioplay, it worked very well and the cast did a great job in creating the illusion that they're talking with each other. I would love to see more of this kind of audiobook form.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this book, especially to those who are curious how the life of an autistic person can be.
