Elizabeth Scott has created quite a splash, at least in my world of YA literature.
Her previous novels (if you don't live under a rock, you will at least know of them, even if you haven't read them) really struck a chord with me. I am sad to say that I've had this book on my shelf for quite some time, and I only recently got around to reading it.
Needless to say, Elizabeth Scott has amazed me once again. After a three month long reading slump, I have been revived. The story goes something like this: After the death of her best friend, Amy has been going through struggles, not only with herself but with her classmates and her family. In 288 enthralling pages, you follow her through her struggles.
I was expecting simplicity when I started this book. I've read enough books about life throwing cruel obstacles, and a character finding closure in some cheesy, predictable way. That may be why it took me so long to start reading this. However, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how Amy dealt with her problems. Amy is a character that I thought was realistic. While the love interest was predictable, I also enjoyed that aspect of the story.
Overall: Read this book, and Elizabeth Scott's others. You will not be sorry.
