BOOK REVIEW: Half In Love With Death by Emily Ross


BLURB:

It's the era of peace and love in the 1960s, but nothing is peaceful in Caroline's life. Since her beautiful older sister disappeared, fifteen-year-old Caroline might as well have disappeared too. She's invisible to her parents, who can't stop blaming each other. The police keep following up on leads even Caroline knows are foolish. The only one who seems to care about her is Tony, her sister's older boyfriend, who soothes Caroline's desperate heart every time he turns his magical blue eyes on her. Tony is convinced that the answer to Jess's disappearance is in California, the land of endless summer, among the street culture of runaways and flower children. Come with me, Tony says to Caroline, and we'll find her together. Tony is so loving, and all he cares about is bringing Jess home. And so Caroline follows, and closes a door behind her that may never open again, in a heartfelt thriller that never lets up.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book had me fascinated until the very end!

My favorite character was Caroline because she would do anything to find her sister, even with a broken family and horrible friends she still tried. I admire her for her determination. 

My favorite part was when I figured everything out at the end because I sort of had this "ah-ha" moment when everything started to make sense. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes drama, secrets and, of course, a little mystery. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 14 and up.
