  • Reading level:

  • Hardcover:
  •  352 pages
  • Publisher:
  •  Dutton Juvenile; Stated to be First Edition edition (June 14, 2011)

Chloe's older sister, Ruby, is the girl everyone looks to and longs for, who can't be captured or caged. When a night with Ruby's friends goes horribly wrong and Chloe discovers the dead body of her classmate London Hayes left floating in the reservoir, Chloe is sent away from town and away from Ruby.
But Ruby will do anything to get her sister back, and when Chloe returns to town two years later, deadly surprises await. As Chloe flirts with the truth that Ruby has hidden deeply away, the fragile line between life and death is redrawn by the complex bonds of sisterhood.
With palpable drama and delicious craft, Nova Ren Suma bursts onto the YA scene with the story that everyone will be talking about.

My Thoughts...
I think I'm confused! I read this whole book waiting for a moment of clarity, but for me it never came. Ruby seems to have control over the small town she lives in, people do what she says or give her what she wants, or believe the stories she tells, but I don't quite know why. Chloe is her younger sister and most devoted follower. I have to say that while I might be confused this story was beautiful written. I just wish we know why Ruby was the way she was, or how all the stories tied into her and Chloe beyond what we did get to know. I also have to say that this story was kind of creepy. I don't want to talk too much about the story because I don't want to ruin anything for anyone else, but for me I am giving this book 3.5 stars. I look forward to reading what other thought of this book.
