dc.description.abstract Dead Girl is a multi-narrative, realist novel set in 1989 about various residents of a small, Albertan town near the Rocky Mountains. The novel is woven around the murder of a local teenager, and is used to explore the everyday reality of the characters' lives, such as the dead teenager's former best friend, Mandy, Mandy's current best friend, Denise, two RCMP constables working on the case, Mandy's step-mother, and other characters. Most of the novel is told in the third person, present tense, and changes POV between characters. The characters' narrative arcs explore themes such as pregnancy, adultery, queerness, racism, grief, and violence, and are used to highlight the grimness of a town with a high level of socio-economic problems. en_US
