What Is ‘A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder’ About?

Based on the book series of the same name by Holly Jackson, the series follows the story of teenager Pip.

Everyone in town knows he did it,” the show’s description reads, per the BBC. “But smart and single minded Pip Fitz-Amobi isn’t so sure and she’s determined to prove it. And if Sal Singh isn’t a murderer and the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth?”

The A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder book series is comprised of four novels which follow Pip as she uncovers various mysteries.
