Teen Review By: Abbey F.

Rating: 5/5

What is the book about?

This is a book that is about a 14 year old girl and her murder. It also goes into detail about how her death affects the lives of the people who loved her, as well as the people she didn’t even know.

What did you like/dislike about it?

I liked that it had multiple points of view from an array of characters. However, I did not like that the story seemed to get sidetracked and it would go into too much detail when it came to side plots.

Who would you recommend it to?

Teens or anyone who wants a realistic read and can handle topics like murder.
