June barely has time to mourn the death of her best friend, Delia before Delia's ex-boyfriend convinces her that Delia was murdered, and June is swept into a tangle of lies, deceit and conspiracy.
The pitch for this book is Gone Girl meets 13 Reasons Why...How could I not read this?! And as my book luck would have it, this book turned out to be one of the most epic, page-turning, nail-biting, oh-my-god-I-can't-handle-the-suspense-anymore novels that I have read in a looong time. Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls definitely finds itself a comfy spot on my all time favourite books list.
The book bounces back and forth between present time and then past years, building the relationship between Delia and June, and how they become Delia-and-June; friends that were not just joined at the hip but souls intertwined. Lynn Weingarten did a brilliant job at penning this beautiful madness. She crafted Delia, a character that seems so unhinged at times and at others the most held together. I could never decide if she was maniacal or ingenious! Bravo, Lynn Weingarten, Bravo!
In case the premise above didn't state the obvious, this book is very hard to describe! It will take you on a wild, mind-blowing ride! Your head will spin and you won't know which way is up until you turn the very last page. Just when I though I had it all figured out, things would tip upside down. Just when I thought I finally cracked it, things would wind round-and-round until every toppled over. The author of this novel is truly a master in mystery!
Dark, funny, eerie and mysterious Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls will keep you on the very edge of your seat the entire way through. Beware, it is addictive! You will lose time while devouring this delicious tale!
