The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow. Apparently I am on a roll in 2011 and everything I pick up is fabulous!!!
I literally read this book in 4 days because I couldn't put it down. Just to give you some insight into my life: I work full time, have a toddler, and write in my free time, so 4 days to finish a book is pretty much UNHEARD of. Yes, it was THAT good.
Derting is amazing and has done a fabulous job of making these characters all seem very real and relatable, but in my opinion, the best thing she does in this book is balance out the totally creepy, heart pounding scenes, with sweet, heart melting ones.
I'll admit it kept me on the edge of my seat and a few times I was actually terrified of turning the page, torn between wanting to know what happens and at the very same time, terrified to find out!
The relationship between Jay and Violet is also so, so sweet, and feels very real.
All in all, just a really great read. I can't wait for the second book!
