-About the book-
|Movie tie in|
This book reveals how a cruel crime that was committed due to the longing lust of a loner affected not only the victim's family but also those who meant something to her. The part I favored most while reading this book was how the strength of love of a father towards his dead daughter could stress until a point where his sixth sense identifies who the murderer was despite the lack of evidence. Not to forget the sister too. I fell in love with the sister when she tried her best to deal with the pain of losing a sister and the pressure of being shadowed by her dead sister too. This book, if you're the type that enjoys family tragedy, reality of life or even supernaturals, you might like it. But don't expect too much of horrors or thrillers from this book despite the title.
Story : 8/10
Characters : 9/10
Plot : 9/10 [ i sort of like the way this story was plotted. it doesn't have a chronological plot. instead, it's pieces or snapshots of the livings by the dead, so it's pretty cool]
Ending : 10/10[ *spoilers* i crazily love the part where Ruth allows Susie to have her body towards the ending! awesome!]
Overall : ♥♥♥♥
