First off, I’m way too old to be the intended audience of this book, so as I complain about it remember that fact. It’s a unique book with protagonist being a high school junior, Hawthorn. She’s misfit and as she tries to find the cause of an older girl’s death it becomes more and more obvious. It’s a unique look at the toll suicide takes on the living. I loved how Hawthorn’s relationship with her brother got stronger as the story ends. I kept wanting to holler at Hawthorn’s mother to pay attention to what she was doing. It was an interesting take on hippies and I enjoyed how Hawthorn turned to the hippies living in the backyard of her family’s home when she needed to talk. I am so glad I grew up in the 1960’s and didn’t have to face the mean girls of high school. I’m giving the book a high rating because any book that stays in my mind as long as this book has, is good writing about an important topic.
I liked the well-rounded characters, loads of suspense and the glimpses of humour in a very serious topic - the unexplained disappearance of a young woman. A real page turner.
