The Original Review - Here!


The Body Finder is a story that could be described as half mystery and half romance. Narrated in two POV, it tells the story of Violet Ambrose, a common girl that owns the very peculiar talent of recognizing the imprint left behind from a killer. It’s in present time in history that a serial killer begins stalking town when Violet understands that it’s in her hand to find such character while dealing with all newfound emotions towards her best friend Jay. I really enjoyed both narrative stories and I think they were connected in a manner that one doesn’t outstands the other. The story’s mystery is interesting since the reader has the opportunity to learn about the killer’s state of mind and modus operandi. The romantic part of the story is captivating and tender. Jay is one of the best love interest characters I’ve read in young literature and his relationship’s development with Violet is intense and certainly real. The author made a great job by portraying both character’s emotions according their ages and the circumstances their love blossoms to a new level. Another aspect worth of mentioning is that we can see how family is an important part in Violet’s life including extracts from Jay’s family life, which in my opinion makes the story bright because this aspect lacks on other Young Adult books by having a significant disconnection. Kimberly Derting has given a Young Adult literature a fantastic touch, which appears to be surrounded by immortals. She has written a story with mortal’s characters without losing the spark that fantasy evokes. The Body Finder is a love story surrounded by mystery and the battle of a youngster in setting terms with her gift and heart.

Mandy Just finished this one.. and your review is perfect. My friend and I were just talking about the presents of their parents. Most of YA books just kill them off.
