Amazing. Different. So freakin good.

Katherine is teenager whose life has been turned upside down and backwards since the murder of her little, prodigy sister, Rachel. She an dher parents just don't realize how much their lives will be changed as a result. She moves to a new city and changes her name so she can get a fresh start. There, she unknowingly alienates people, and is surprised when the beautiful, outgoing, and popular Alice invites her to a party. They, and Alice's "friend" Robbie, become close friends and Katheirne soon starts to see the weirdness of Alice's odd behavior and unfair treatment of people. But overtime- too long if you ask me- Katherine is finally happy and content with her life and she's able to see how damaged Alice really is. I loved this book but I think it took her way too long to ditch Alice. The layout of the story is past, past, and present, so you know what's going to happen, just not exactly how or why. Which, to me, is the best and worst part of the book. It just makes it that much more heartbreaking. After I read, I was so heartbroken. It was weird how everything intertwined but it still seemed realistic- kinda.
