Customer Reviews

This book was a fun read that kept going with more mystery.
Rebekah
This story follows a very predictable plot line and the characters, while engaging, are also incredibly predictable.

Even though I'm a grown-up, I still like to read Young Adult books.

A very enjoyable read. I loved the suburban high school setting, a la John Hughes except it is in the South Chicago suburb of Palos. Plus, the main character is a lovable outcast, who slowly finds her way. Lots of great details about high school life. It makes sense that the author has been working for 5 years on the Hannah Montana show, she gets teen dialogue just right. The book became quite addicting, and by by midway I couldn't put it down. By putting the E-book on my iPhone, of course, I was reading it at every free moment, even during meetings when I should have been working! Great summer read, look forward to future books from this author.

Okay!!! There are some good points and some bad points for this tale, and I'll try listing any that spring to mind to try and explain my middle-of-the-road rating!!!!

What could use working on!!!!

-the punctuation could use working on! It was pretty distracting! There were commas all over the place where no commas were needed! And there were commas where there should have been periods! On top of those, I don't think I have ever read a story before with quite! so many! exc!amation marks!!!! They were everywhere! It almost read as though the narrator was either constantly yelling or constantly surprised! When it gets to the point that I'm noticing the (sometimes) 10+ exclamation marks on each page, some serious culling is in order.

-tense. The author could do with figuring out which tense she wants to use and attempting to stick to it. At one point, I had no idea what tense this story was supposed to be written in and it took some effort to switch off my inner editor and ignore it enough to read on. When the tense is consistent, it strengthens the writing and makes everything a lot clearer for the reader to follow.

-the voice. Yes, this is a teen novel. And yes, the teen voice of the narrator was pretty effective (which I'll mention in my pluses in a mo) but there was inconsistencies there. The author had obviously gone to great lengths (sometimes overdoing it with the repetitions and waffling to the point of distraction) but then there were so few contractions that from one breath to the next the dialogue or narration went from authentic to unrealistic and wooden. No teen on earth says I am instead of I'm (or any other such familiar sayings). Half the time, they drop the opening word of a complete sentence.

I liked the mystery and the story about kait. Kait attending funerals because this was a comfort to her since she was still grieving for her mom, who had died within the past year. it made her remember her mom and she enjoyed the stories she heard about her mom at her mom's funeral. The book was something different than the normal boy meets girl romances out there. I think this could have been an extremly good book, but I didn't like the F word that was in the book and in most cases, I won't read on when I come across this word. It is not something I would recommend to my friends because of this word. I understand that many people speak like this, but I know many that do not and will not read books with this typle of language- This is something I look for in a review- I don't want trashy and dont want language.

I just bought my first Kindle and this was my first fiction reading experience on my new eReader. What a great first eBook! I loved it. I bought this book, because it had a cool cover and I thought it sounded really interesting. Plus, it was at a GREAT PRICE!!! Even though I'm a grown-up, I still like to read Young Adult books. This book was super fun and entertaining. It gets right into the mystery and romance in an incredibly believable way. What I really dig about it is that the characters are not superficial teenagers. They're real people. I hate books that "write down" to young adults. If you love John Hughes movies, Veronica Mars, and Twilight books (for the relationship angle this book doesn't have any vampires), I think you'll like this. I really did.

My 13 year old daughter loved this book so I'm writing a quick review. She didn't get into it right away, but by the end, she was gushing , and could hardly wait to get her hands on the next book. I was a little taken aback when she pointed out the "f' word, primarily because the description states 11 & up. I wouldn't expect that usage in a book recommended for 11 year olds. The language was sparse, however, and did not detract from her enjoyment of the story. It is very hard to find YA literature that doesn't deal with paranormal or zombies, so this was refreshing. Definitely a mystery that grabbed her attention!

Every now and then a YA book review is sent my way and I accept because with each read, I enjoy the YA genre more and more. This is another example of a highly entertaining YA read that us adults can also enjoy. From the beginning the reader is introduced to Kait, a high schooler who has lost her mom to cancer and finds a connection with her when she crashes funerals. This may sound crazy, but when she attends a funeral she ends up in the middle of a murder mystery that makes her confront all sorts of fears.

I absolutely love books that have twists and turns and the reader is kept in the loop throughout. Nothing like the killer being a character that shows up in the end - no good. Not the case with this one, this author had the ability to give out facts, but let the reader take their imagination to find out who our killer is in the end. This is worth reading to the very last page.

A book that is perfect for the high school reader who loves a little mystery, a little romance and may even be a reluctant reader. A warning to the the young readers, there is mention of heroin overdoses and through the reading, these are proved wrong. I in no way condone the use of any illegal substances, but I think that the topic is covered well in this book.
