The book is about a teenage girl who is just living life and going to school but one day going home from school, she gets taken and raped and murdered. The rest of the book shows her her perspective and how she is trying to accept her death and she has to watch her family and friends struggle to move on without her in their lives while she still tries to come to terms with her own death. I love this book! This is the kind of books that I enjoy reading the most, there is also a movie so I am going to watch that now and see how it compares but I don’t think it can beat the book. I recommend this to high school kids and older because I think some parts might be a little too graphic even for some middle schoolers. But, I think anyone would enjoy it.
