Sophie Winters is a recovering addict who was sent to rehab after the murder of her best friend, Mina. Everyone, including Sophie’s parents think that Mina’s death was the result of a drug deal gone wrong, but it wasn’t. Now Sophie has to deal with her over protective parents while at the same time trying to find out who killed Mina and trying to keep her and Mina’s secret from Mina’s brother, Trev.
All in all, this is one of the best books I’ve read in a while. I love Sophie’s narrative and the concept of the story is very good. I love how Tess Sharpe portrayed Sophie’s addiction as well as how she became an addict and her recovery. It’s all very believable and it’s clear that she did her research. I also like how the chapters switch from the past to the present. It tells the story of Mina and Sophie while at the same time telling how Sophie is investigating Mina’s death.
One thing I didn’t see coming is the romance between Sophie and Mina. Throughout half of the book, I thought that Trev would be the main love interest. But then we find out that Sophie and Mina had been in love, and then I quickly started rooting for their relationship, even though I knew Mina’s fate.
Another thing that I really liked is the fact that Sharpe didn’t make Mina’s ex-boyfriend, Kyle, an ass. At first I did hate him because he hindered the investigation of Mina’s death by lying to the police about Sophie. But then he actually became a good guy and started helping Sophie out.
This book does cover a lot of important subjects, such as murder and drug addiction, and sexuality. Mina didn’t want to admit her feelings for Sophie because she was afraid to come out to her mother. But then, at the end, we find out from Kyle that the reason why Mina broke up with him was because Mina wanted to be with Sophie, and that Mina was in love with her. It was a very sad book, but it had a very peaceful ending. Mina got justice, and Sophie found peace. She’s still sober, she’s looking to take the year off before attending college.
I highly recommend this book. It was amazing.

The story follows teenaged Sophie recovering from drug addiction after her closest friend dies. It’s a love story wrapped into a murder mystery. Though the mystery was good, it’s overshadowed by the depth of love this young girl feels for her best friend Mina. Often torn between Mina’s brother and Mina, Sophie waffles between the accident, which left her crippled, the addiction accompanying her pain, the loss of Mina, and solving her murder.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Mystery, But Not In The Way You Expect.

Like other readers have said, the first little bit is a drag- however, after that, it picks up incredibly. I won’t rehash what they’ve said, but to bring my own perspective:
This book is a weird amalgamation of mystery and a love story. You’re trying to figure out who she falls in love with- a bisexual twist, which was very enjoyed. I’ve never read another mystery that put it into such plain details- always alluded to, never spoken. Seeing representation in a book that isn’t just a love story makes my heart feel full. I would say I wish Mina wouldn’t have died, but I think that’s what makes this story so good.
Normally, I don’t like to read homosexuality tales, probably because it’s usually about the sex and not the love and also it doesn’t really interest me. This story however skillfully crafts the deep feelings Sophie has not only for Mina but for her brother who was driving during the accident, which left her crippled. I really loved the emotional tension the author creates in this YA. A beautiful story that I thoroughly enjoyed.

This book was one of my all time favorites. For her first book It was beyond amazing. This book is so well writtien and I love how it goes from the past in everyother chapter and then the other chapters are in the present, you learn so much about her past and I just love the way she wrote this book. I could not put this book down but I do recommend this book for older teens and young adults as it does having cursing and some sexual situations and deals with drugs but I loved every minute of it 🙂
