Bad MarieBad Marie by Marcy Dermansky

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


After serving a six-year prison sentence, Marie gets a job taking care of the daughter of her childhood best friend (best friend being a loose term here) Ellen. Marie is a mess, not so much "bad" as the title suggests but lost. She gets along great with the daughter Caitlin. Soon, she, Caitlin, and Ellen's husband are on their way to Paris. The author (and many critics I've read) admits that the book is very much based on French film and it has that quality. The writing is sharp and the characters believable and I found it enjoyable, waiting to see how far down this (terrible) rabbit hole Marie would go down.
