Cosmopolitan's 11 Best Young Adult Books You'll Be Obsessed With in 2019 Seventeen's 10 Best YA Books of 2019 (So Far)"Vexing, poignant, and thought-provoking." -Kirkus "Perceptive." -Publishers Weekly"Keep[s] readers on their toes all the way up to the intense ending, but the emotional reconciliation, which is clearly what's been at stake here all along, enables a sense of just deserts for all involved." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "The key to a truly successful mystery/detective story is the author's clever use of misdirection, and in What We Buried, Boorman succeeds masterfully...[A] great read, one that will definitely play with readers' minds." -CM Magazine
