about

Hawthorn wasn't trying to insert herself into a missing person's investigation. Or maybe she was. But that's only because Lizzie Lovett's disappearance is the one fascinating mystery their sleepy town has ever had. Bad things don't happen to popular girls like Lizzie Lovett, and Hawthorn is convinced she'll turn up at any moment-which means the time for speculation is now.So Hawthorn comes up with her own theory for Lizzie's disappearance. A theory way too absurd to take seriously? at first. The more Hawthorn talks, the more she believes. And what better way to collect evidence than to immerse herself in Lizzie's life? Like getting a job at the diner where Lizzie worked and hanging out with Lizzie's boyfriend. After all, it's not as if he killed her-or did he?Told with a unique voice that is both hilarious and heart-wrenching, Hawthorn's quest for proof may uncover the greatest truth is within herself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't get into it ... I wanted to love this book and the premise sounded good, however I couldn't get vested enough into it to finish. Stopped reading about halfway through as I couldn't see where it was going or why I would want to finish reading :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this book to bits! This book. THIS BOOK. I love it so much I want to eat it. At this moment, having just finished it, I feel like I have never before loved a book as much as I love this book. Hawthorn Creely is this obnoxious, endearing, brilliantly voicey teen who wants there to be more to the world than what she sees every day. Because the world she sees is hard. And lonely. Chelsea doesn't hit you over the head with Hawthorn's I-so-desperately-want-to-hug-her loneliness, though. Instead, she delivers it subtly in these sock-you-in-the-gut lines. Like: "But really, I was most afraid of turning my phone back on and finding out no one had even tried to get ahold of me." or "A burrito tastes good even if you're eating alone." Instead of facing that hard world, Hawthorn obsesses about the disappearance of Lizzie Lovett, losing herself in a ridiculous theory that she may or may not actually believe. And is brilliant and heart-breaking and hilarious while doing so. (Examples: "Didn't your parents ever tell you opinions should be left to people with brains?" and "I wanted his ice cream to fall off the cone and onto the pavement on a really hot day. I wanted him to read a really great mystery, only to find someone had ripped out the end pages where it was solved.") The book positively sings with narrative voice, and is full of so many gorgeous lines, and I can't recommend it enough. Read this book. Just read this book.
