*Review* Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight
I didn't know what to to expect going into this book, but I fell into it immediately. This book grabbed me from the first page, and kept me in it's grip until the end. There were so many secrets and twists that it was a little difficult keeping things straight, but for the most part, I really enjoyed this book and was unable to put it down.
It was really interesting to get not only Kate's perspective on Amelia's death, but also Amelia's. You literally get Amelia's death from her own eyes, and although it's a little odd, it at least gives the reader some sense of definiteness concerning her death.
My only issue with this book was Amelia's response to the Maggies. I don't know. I guess I just felt like her reasons for joining them in the first place and not leaving when she had the chance were weak. Granted, she is a teenager trying to fit in, but I don't know. I just didn't like it.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced mystery.
Until next time,
