What I Loved: Jodi Picoult has the ability to write about the worst situations and make millions of people want to read the book. She is a master at storytelling. This book is another one. I loved it because she wrote a story I was wrapped up in. I needed to know what happened and what was going to happen to these characters.
How I Felt: This is a sad story, ripping you apart piece by piece. The death of a teenager, the sadness of a suicide pact *potentially*, just tears you up. However, it is a powerful book that keeps you turning the pages.
To Read or Not To Read: Readers of Jodi Picoult will enjoy this book. I do have this tagged as Romance for romance-lovers, however, it’s more of a love *Romeo and Juliet style* so be prepared for that. Trigger Warning: Teen death and suicide.
What’s This Book About Anyway?
Two teens grow up living next door to each other. They are friends as children and that friendship grows into love by their teenage years. Then, one night, Emily’s parent’s lives are shattered when they are called to the hospital where their daughter has died from a gunshot wound to the head. Her boyfriend Chris is alive, but has a gun with one bullet in the chamber. Chris is adamant that it was a suicide pact, however, the city’s detectives are unconvinced. What really happened that night; will the detective be able to unravel the secrets?
