Danya Kukafka, a 24-year-old Fort Collins native, began writing her first novel, Girl in Snow (Simon & Schuster, 2017), at age 19 while in college in New York City. The addictive thriller finds a sleepy Colorado suburb torn apart when a local teenage golden girl is found dead on a playground carousel. As the town struggles to resolve the mystery, outsider characters are drawn into the light, revealing secret obsessions, resentments and cruelty. Kukafka’s teens are complicated and despairing, disillusioned oddballs who are deeply flawed, but her deft and suspenseful storytelling makes the pages fly.
