Since when do the dead send emails?

Kate Lowry’s best friend Grace died a year ago. Se when she gets an email from her. Kate’s more than a little confused.

Subject: (no subject)
I’m here… sort of.
Find Cameron. He knows.
I shouldn’t be writing.
Don’t tell. They’ll hurt you.

Now Kate has no choice but to prove once and for all that Grace’s death was more than just a tragic accident. She teams up with a couple of knights- in- (not so)- shining armor- the dangerously hot bad boy, Liam, and her love-struck neighbor, Seth. But at their elite private school, there are secrets so big people will do anything to protect them-even if it means getting rid of anyone trying to solve a murder…

My Verdict

Have I mentioned how much I love a good mystery?!? This book is full of complex characters, and great mysteries that will draw you in from the very first page.
Kate Lowry is a brave, sassy, and complex main character. I didn’t always agree with the decisions she made but I could understand where she was coming from when she made them. Seth, it was impossible not to like him, even if he was a little weird (carrying pickles in his pocket for a snack. Ew!) But he was always there for Kate without fail, to help her break into school property, steal student files, or drive her places in the middle of the night. When she needed him, he was there, even if she didn’t deserve it.  He was a very loyal friend and just an all around great guy. Liam, I wasn’t sure what to think about him at first, and it took me over half of the book to decide whether I trusted him or not (I did).
The plotline of this book was very well thought out and perfectly executed. I loved that it wasn’t easily predictable. The reader is constantly kept guessing, and whenever I thought I had figured it out, I was wrong.
Great characters and great plotlines= a great read! I’ll definitely be keeping a close eye out for the next book in this set.

  1. I enjoyed that Kate gets support by her friend Seth and her new friend (maybe boyfriend) Liam. The three of them were a great team and worked well together. I was very happy that the relationship between Kate and Liam was not the main focus of the book, the investigation and Kate's new found interest in life were more important.
