The Raising by Laura Kasischke

Booklist magazine calls The Raising “[A] literary page-turner reminiscent of Donna Tartt’s The Secret History.” I totally agree with their review. Set at a midwestern university, this is a very intelligent, very dark story that centers around the death of one student. The secrets of sorority life play a huge role as the tale unfolds. Not an easy read, but worth the time and effort needed.
