Read in May, 2011

Sunny's sister Jazz died in February. You can imagine her shock when she gets a letter from Jazz in the mail in May. You can also imagine her shock when Jazz shows up and isn't the sister Sunny remembers.

I love Gail Giles, so it is kind of surprising that I never read this, one of her earliest books. It is a very, very short book, and an incredibly quick read. This doesn't give the suspense quite as much time to percolate as I would have liked. But the story itself takes place over a very short period of time. And I do so love reading a suspense novel with a heroine whose actions I can understand throughout.

The ending is ambiguous, to say the least. I like that. And it doesn't matter which way you take the ending, it's equally horrifying. This would've made for a good episode of The Twilight Zone, which for me is pretty high praise for a suspense story with a twist.
