What The Freak? I wasn't ready! LoL Take it back Amy Zhang just one more chapter or an epilogue at least! I beg you!
I started reading this book because it was on a children's book list & I was pre-reading for gift ideas. Then I realized it was YA & was trapped.
Amy Zhang creates a very realistic view into the life a troubled teenage girl named Janie Vivian & Micah Carter her secret. They live 2 separate together unilateral parallel lives & it is inexplicably complicated. Together you must steer through the fog to figure out what the Hello Janie is up to & the price everyone is going to pay for playing pretend with her!
Everything about Micah makes no sense & when you add in Janie then there isn't enough life to figure it out. The story grasps you & holds you in because all you want is to understand. This novel is a mirrored look for those of us who have lost our way, before we found our way.
Unraveling the mystery of who burned down Janie's house, what secret she is holding inside & where she ran away too will have you screaming into the pages. You feel like your watching a horror movie & they're running toward the killer. Definitely an interesting read. I gave 4 stars because I wanted Micah to be more flushed out & I couldn't figure out Dewey's purpose.
