One thing you should know about ALL the characters in this book is they're seriously damaged. The kids have quite a few issues and the parents are negligent and pretty screwed up themselves. I don't think I liked any of them, except maybe Jeremy's best friend, Ryan. Sure, he seems questionable at first, but as everyone's secrets slowly come to light, I learned he's really the best of the bunch. The rest of them pretty much sucked and there were times I didn't like Jeremy very much, too. He has been through a couple of traumatic experiences and with what happens to his leg after he gets into an accident (especially since he's a track star who was actually going places), I understand why he spiraled out of control. Still, I couldn't connect with him and therefore, didn't really like him.
Also, I didn't care for the romance at all, it just didn't fit into the story for me and I could've done without it. As Jeremy digs deeper and deeper into Susannah's life, he uncovers what the adults in the town are hiding and just how messed up her life really was. I'll admit, I didn't expect half of the things he finds out and I'm telling you, you will not like any of the characters in this book after you you realize what happened. But you will like the overall mystery. And the ending?!Read more ›
Jeremy Glass has had a rough start in life. A single traumatic incident has affected everything about him. He has secrets that not even his dad knows about. In addition to his personal losses and secret struggles, he is also deeply in love with his best friend's girlfriend, Susannah. To say he has issues is an understatement. After witnessing an explosive argument between Ryan and Susannah, Jeremy wakes up in the hospital and Susannah is missing. Did she run away? Is she hurt? Is she dead? What happened?
I every time I thought I had the mystery solved there would be another element added or twist I didn't see coming. Amowitz has developed a deeply complex story that never gets confusing. I especially liked that most chapters had a "Now" and "Then" portion.
Amowitz draws you in to this very tangled web and leaves you turning the page wanting more. This is a wonderfully written, fast-paced book.
*Parents: there is some strong language and sex in this book.
Blurb from Goodreads:
On the night seventeen-year-old Jeremy Glass winds up in the hospital with a broken leg and a blood alcohol level well above the legal limit, his secret crush, Susannah, disappears. When he begins receiving messages from her from beyond the grave, he's not sure whether they're real or if he's losing his grip on reality. Clue by clue, he gets closer to unraveling the mystery, and soon realizes he must discover the truth or become the next victim himself.
So, what's the first thing you notice about this book? Well, it has to be the cover, of course. It is just absolutely amazing. And why shouldn't it be. It was designed by the author herself. Lisa is an AMAZING graphic artist who has done a number of covers for many different authors. I have not found one that doesn't shout out to me how beautiful it is. You really need to check out her work and see how amazing she makes books look: [...] I think my most favorite thing about this cover is it doesn't shout at you when you look at it. The colors truly reflect the ambiance of the story line. It's simple yet effective in evoking the appropriate emotions from the reader. That is the mark of a true artist for sure!Read more ›

Interesting book that keeps you reading. It was obvious that it was a female author trying to write a male main character, but other than that, enjoyable.Published 18 months ago by mom of 2
