Gone Girl meets 13 Reasons Why in this stylish, sexy, and atmospheric story about friendship packed with twists and turns that will leave you breathless.
They say Delia burned herself to death in her stepfather’s shed. They say it was suicide.
But June doesn’t believe it.
June and Delia used to be closer than anything. Best friends in that way that comes before everyone else—before guys, before family. It was like being in love, but more. They had a billion secrets, tying them together like thin silk cords.
But one night a year ago, everything changed. June, Delia, and June’s boyfriend Ryan were just having a little fun. Their good time got out of hand. And in the cold blue light of morning, June knew only this—things would never be the same again.
And now, a year later, Delia is dead. June is certain she was murdered. And she owes it to her to find out the truth…which is far more complicated than she ever could have imagined.
Sexy, dark, and atmospheric, Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls will keep you guessing until the very last page.
This book was not at all what I expected, yet it still managed to leave me feeling haunted and overwhelmed.
I was expecting much more of an exploration of suicide and depression and mental health and such. However, I'd categorise this as a mystery more than anything.
I didn't become particular attached to any of the characters; at some points I had trouble distinguishing between a couple. They felt vague, more like outlines than real people. When Delia began narrating chapters, it became even more challenging for me to connect with them.
The ending was very bold and daring, but ultimately I didn't really buy into the believability of the whole story, and thus only enjoyed it.
This was addictive to read and definitely enjoyable, I just found myself a little confused and not entirely satisfied at the end.
