All Unquiet ThingsWow, just wow. This book was impressive. I love how it was a love story, yet, not between the people you think.
Carly: She was sweet. Smart. Self-destructive. She knew the secrets of Brighton Day School’s most privileged students. Secrets that got her killed.
Neily: Dumped by Carly for a notorious bad boy, Neily didn’t answer the phone call she made before she died. If he had, maybe he could have helped her. Now he can’t get the image of her lifeless body out of his mind.
Audrey: She’s the reason Carly got tangled up with Brighton’s fast crowd in the first place, and now she regrets it—especially since she’s convinced the police have put the wrong person in jail. Audrey thinks the murderer is someone at Brighton, and she wants Neily to help her find out who it is.
As reluctant allies Neily and Audrey dig into their shared past with Carly, her involvement with Brighton’s dark goings-on comes to light. But figuring out how Carly and her killer fit into the twisted drama will force Audrey and Neily to face hard truths about themselves and the girl they couldn’t save.
Neily is heartbroken after Carly dies, even though they broke up more than a year before. She was his first love and he never stopped loving her. He is convinced there is more to Carly's death than the authorities have discovered. There's definitely something wrong....
Audrey was Carly's cousin. After she arrived at Brighton, both of them got involved with the popular and sometimes dangerous crowd. Audrey's father was convicted of the murder but Audrey is convinced he didn't do it. Now, both Neily and Audrey put aside their differences to solve Carly's murder once and for all.
I finished the book in two days, it was THAT good. It's very surprising and it keeps you on your toes. I love how it's very original, I mean, I haven't read a YA murder mystery in a while, if ever.
Plus, I'm adding Neily to my lit boyfriends.
In one sentence:
"A surprisingly fast read that you won't expect."
Overall Feeling: 5
