"My mother was chaos and passion, devastation and joy. Dad used to say you could reach deep into her eyes and pull out a song. Well, her eyes are closed now, and I'm not sure there'll be any music in my life again."
Pintip Dunn writes a book like one I've never read before! I love being surprised by books. This book grabbed my attention from the first page. Such an exciting mystery story about family, friends, love, death, betrayal, secrets, and loyalty.
Dunn introduces you to Cecilia, a young girl who lost her mother to suicide. Her mother, working the counseling hotline at school, slept with a young boy. When word got out, she committed suicide. Cecilia and her father do not believe it was a suicide. It was murder. Cecilia teams up with a new boy, Sam, to investigate the suicide. The two uncover huge secrets that they should not be messing with. They are in danger. Was Cecilia's mom murdered? Did she really sleep with that kid? Will the truth come out? Or will it get Sam and Cecilia first?
I absolutely enjoyed this book! I went in not knowing what this book was about. I was blown away by the story, the problems, the clues, and the ending! Goodness gracious, the ending! This book was one big wild ride! I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next, what all the clues meant, and what they were leading Cecilia and Sam to!
