Saving Zoe by Alyson Noel-TEEN

Rating: 5/5 Stars

About the Book: Echo looked up to her popular, beautiful sister Zoe. But when Zoe is brutally murdered, Echo is left feeling lost and confused. Now a year has passed and the world is moving on around her. Friends are growing up and changing, her parents are still mourning and Echo's not sure how to manage the awkwardness that is high school. Zoe isn't there to guide her, until one day Zoe's boyfriend shows up with her diary and gives it to Echo. Through her sister's diary, Echo learns secrets, lies, what led to her sister's death and ultimately how to move on and grow up.


GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I was originally interested in this book because of the cover that said fans of Veronica Mars would love this. As a VM fan, I had to pick it up and I'm so glad I did! This book is amazing. I feel very passionately that this is a must read. The writing is excellent and the story draws you in. Saving Zoe is a blender book (it's got a little bit of everything-it's got romance, mystery, twists and turns, coming of age, sadness, happiness.) In the beginning, you only know as much about Zoe's death that Echo knows which adds a mystery element of figuring out what happened to Zoe and why. I felt just like Echo and couldn't wait to read more of Zoe's diary and find out more about her life. I couldn't put it down and Zoe and Echo have stayed with me long after finishing the book. If you have a book club, this is a great pick as many interesting discussions can stem from the many topics presented. I would say more but I don't want to give too much away....so get yourself a copy and enjoy reading!

P.S.-Alyson Noel has a blog and a message board and she's great about writing back to her fans-if you read her book, drop her a line-she's fabulous!
