it was amazing

This book was absolutely amazing and I would say it’s now on my list of favourite books of all time. It was my first time reading Diane Chamberlain and I will definitely be picking up more of her books. Her writing reminds me of Jodi Picoult, another of my favourite authors.

The book starts out with Noelle taking her own life although we aren’t sure why at this point. It got me intrigued though as to why this person felt she needed to kill herself and wondered what had happened. The story is told from various character’s points of view. Tara and Emerson are two of Noelle’s best friends and are heartbroken when they learn about their friend. Most of all they want to know why.

I connected with both Tara and Emerson and felt like I was right there with them as I was reading along. The author gives us small clues throughout but I don’t know understand fully the situation until towards the end of the book. It just keeps building and building until I am just beside myself and NEED TO KNOW what happened.

Noelle was not the person whom her friends thought she was. She wasn’t a bad person though and even though I didn’t agree with everything she did, I still didn’t dislike her character. She’s complex like most of us are and the author portrayed each personality so believably.

There’s a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming at all and I was left with my mouth wide open in shock. This is one book I will be telling all my friends and family about.
