About this deal

I loved how the mystery of what happened last summer is gradually revealed to the reader in flashbacks to different parts of Skye's life pre losing her sister, Luisa, and I feel that this let me get to know Skye even more. A couple of years later, I went to live in Paris where I was editorial assistant for an American newspaper.

As you guys are aware, this is my Murder Month where I read books that have a crime/thriller/mystery element to them. They might even be dangerous, and Sky soon realises that if she wants to get to the bottom of the messages, she cannot trust anyone but herself. Although they are covered sensitively, if any of these things are likely to trigger a negative reaction, then it may be a good idea to skip this book. Then she begins to receive texts from someone pretending to be her dead sister - and decides no one can be trusted.Skye starts receiving messages from her supposedly dead sister and she must find out where her sister is. The idea behind it was very good, but given that it plays such a big role in the book, it is a shame that it did not feel especially well realised. Quando cometemos um erro temos de aprender com ele e quando somos confrontados com uma situação similar temos a oportunidade de não o repetir.

Many of these themes are reasonably hard-hitting, but they are handled in an accessible way that is ideal for a young adult audience. Her parents think sending Skye to a holiday camp for beggared teens will help her move on with her life. Could all of her concerns stem from an overactive imagination or is there something more ominous underway at Morley and who, if any, of her campmates can she really trust. Supposed to be Skye’s opportunity to gain ‘closure’ she sees it more as an escape route from being hassled by her overcompensating parents and a grateful distraction from the memory of Luisa’s death.If it hadn't been for my pesky day job forcing me back to reality, I would've read in a single sitting – I was that hooked. Skye makes friends with Faye, Joe and Brandon who she builds a close relationship with and gave this story a hopeful outlook which was lovely.
