Last night, after going out with friends and arriving home at 2:00 AM, I practically ran upstairs, snuggled into my favorite reading chair and devoured the last 50 pages of Alyson Noel's SAVING ZOE.
Fourteen year old Echo, a year after her sister's violent murder, unravels the truth of what led up to her sister's death by reading Zoe's diary. Alyson Noel nailed both sister's voices. Echo's in real time and Zoe's through diary entries. (So hard to do!) The voices are funny while dealing with a tough subject. And I definitely teared up in spots, because they were totally real.
Of course I stayed up until well after 3:00 AM and have quite the little sting in my head this morning as a result, but what a great read.
So what was your last great read?
