Bad On Paper

Apr 26, 2023

We’re so excited to discuss Before We Were Innocent by Ella Berman, a 2 time BOP book club author! This book fits right in the venn diagram of Becca and Olivia’s differing book tastes. We discuss how we felt about the friendship between the characters in the past vs present timeline (and between teenage girls in general), if we saw the twists coming, the Amanda Knox parallels, thoughts on the ending, and ask ourselves the question ‘who would you go to if you were suspected of murder?’ 


If you like this book, listen to the The Shit No One Tells You About Writing interview with Ella Berman, and for more books similar to Before We Were Innocent, check out The Comeback by  Ella Berman, The The Villa by Rachel Hawkins, and I Have Some Questions for You by Rebecca Makkai
