I love how the couple grows--of course, it's all cliche, he being a reserved, brooding man, and she a friendly, bubbly woman. But there's something about the two of them together that had me reading the book all day long. And of course, there's drama. And the drama really spiced things up a bit.
Sadie wasn't the most original book, the mystery of the killer wasn't the most profound, and the characters are forgettable. Still, if you want a quicker, generic mystery, this is a good enough read.
All in all, a decent contemporary YA book, with heavy topics that are easily digestible by YA readers.
This was a beautiful rendering of two women, from different decades, learning their strength as women.
I think this was a decent contemporary YA read, but not the most engaging for someone who feels removed from that age bracket.
I cried reading this. There was a poignancy to the story I wasn't expecting, and a sisterhood of friends that I loved and envied.
The book is more character study than anything else, and though I don't always enjoys those sorts of books, I did this one.
Six high school students, some of them friends, some former friends, are locked in a hotel dinner hall with a syringe, a bomb, and one hour to escape. But to escape, they have to kill one of them, or they all die.
What a thrilling and provoking read!
I can't say I liked Helen, the main character, much.
