cover for Bury This by Andrea Portes. A white doll's head with blue eyes lies half-buried in show, pine trees in the background.Andrea Portes’ BURY THIS has been named a Top Indie Fiction pick by Library Journal!

The body of a young woman is found by a snow plower at the side of the road in 1979 small-town Michigan, and the case is unsolved for 25 years until some film students decide to make a documentary. The effect on the town, always insidious, turns incendiary. VERDICT Based on a true story, this book delivers suspense but means to be a social study, told in precise, lyrical language.
