For fans of YA authors such as David Levithan, Rainbow Rowell, Lauren Olive and Jay Asher comes the compelling, page turning, stonkingly good thriller from American author Lynn Weingarten. When June met Delia, she was a lifeline. Their intense friendship gave her a sense of belonging, of security, that she’d never had before. She felt braver, smarter, funnier, more attractive when Delia was around. But then something went wrong, and Delia and June haven’t spoken for a year when an announcement is made at their school that Delia is dead.
June barely has time to mourn before Delia’s ex-boyfriend convinces her that Delia didn’t kill herself but was in fact murdered, and June is fast swept into a tangle of lies and deceit – and a conspiracy she can barely conceive of, never mind believe.
Stylish, sexy and atmospheric, with so many twists it will leave you breathless.
Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls is one of the most haunting stories that I have read this year. Actually, scratch that; it is probably the most haunting book I have read ever.
It is a story about friendship and the dark and twisted turns that it can take. Sometimes you can be too close to someone and that is exactly what happens with June and Delia. During their friendship you would barely see one without the other but as they get older and boys get involved the once close friendship diminishes.
When June finds out that Delia has died, committed suicide, she starts to feel guilty that she didn’t keep in contact with her friend. Perhaps she could have stopped her, perhaps things would be different. Perhaps. Perhaps. Perhaps.
When June starts to suspect that Delia was murdered things take an interesting turn.
Seriously, Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls is YA fiction at its most twisted. Read it and be in shock and awe.
