April 2, 2018: “Not That I Could Tell”: A Small Summary

I finished reading my Book of the Month selection for March, ‘Not That I Could Tell’ by Jessica Strawser. It turned out to be an engaging read. The story centered around the small community of Yellow Springs, Ohio, as a group of women are left to figure out the whereabouts of one of their friends after a night of drinking and conversation. One of the neighbors left to put the pieces together is a young working professional named Izzy, who is struggling to rebuild her own life after a sudden heartbreak. This story navigates the delicate line between maintaining anonymity for the sake of protecting the safe space of home while reaching out to friends at the first sign of distress. ‘Not That I Could Tell’ kept me reading to see what would happen to the neighborhood women of Yellow Springs as events unfolded.
