This is Our Story by Ashley Elston

“We made a pact in those woods. Either we all get out of this or none of us does. We all know the consequences. It’s as simple as that.”

When Grant Perkins is shot and killed, many mourn his death. He was rich, charismatic, handsome, charming, and funny, the type of person everybody liked. But four boys, in particular, were impacted the most by Grant’s death. Not only were these four Grant’s best friends growing up, but they were the only ones with him at Riverpoint the morning he was killed. They were all intoxicated when they went hunting. They all held the gun he was shot with. They all fired the gun he was shot with. Nobody would have expected that he would fall victim to one of his best friends. The book, This is Our Story by Ashley Elston follows Kate, an intern at the district attorney’s office. The case seems hopeless without any leads nor cooperative witnesses, but Kate is determined to find out which of the four boys is responsible for killing Grant. Each one has secrets to hide including Grant. As Kate tries to dig deeper, she realizes nothing is the way it seems on the surface. The more she figures out, the more danger she is in. Will she be able to solve the case, or will she become the next victim?
