Road Kill Girl by Nicole Herbert is out now.
“On the highway of life, I am roadkill.” That is how eighteen-year-old Mar started her last high school assignment. She’s felt both invisible and unwanted for the past four years and thinks about leaving her small Canadian town. After a sudden breakup with her swoon-worthy musician boyfriend, she is steered into an investigation into her mother’s death by the most unexpected visitor: a mangy, sassy cat claiming to be her guardian angel.
When secrets of her dead mother’s past resurface revealing that her ex-preacher dad might not be her biological father, Mar risks learning truths she never wanted to know. Why is it that she never felt like she belonged, and is it possible that this dead cat is just using her like everyone else? What she doesn’t know is what everyone is scared of, the start of the next World War might just depend on a choice she needs to make.
I was so excited to dive into this novel. I loved the creativity Author Nicole Herbert interwove throughout this novel. Mar was a great protagonist. She was well-rounded, and I love how the author allowed Mar to partake in the journey of this plot and made us as the readers feel what Mar felt. That isn’t an easy thing to achieve, but I think Herbert did so!
Road Kill Girl is Author Nicole Herbert’s debut novel. She lives in Pickering, Ontario, with her husband, son, and two cats. Also, if you love the cover artwork of this novel it was done by Nolan Mercer on Instagram.
