A girl shattered by tragedy is trying to start a new life - a new school, new friends, new...future? And a new boy. 
But is everything truly that what it seems to be?

Great start, interesting characters, great work with psychology (at least in the first half of the book). 
I like that Anne is able to feel compassion and that she has the right instincts to recognize the right and the wrong.
But unfortunately all the mystery went into being just unbelievable in the final parts. 

But having said that - the psychology of teenagers is this authoress´s strength. Fingers crossed for the next book!

This is a tragic story of a young girl Anne who loses both her parents in a horrific accident, After moving in with her Aunt and Uncle she meets this troubled boy named Blake. Blake's girlfriend, Cara, drowned over the summer and Blake feels responsible 

This is an interesting read, not a masterpiece but the few hours I spent reading were entertaining and I would recommend

While this one was super creepy, I also liked how it mixed the contemporary genre with it as well.

Thanks for the review copy (from several thousand years ago - sorry) but this book just wasn't for me. After the first few chapters I just wasn't enjoying it, so will not be reviewing elsewhere.

I have decided that i will not be publishing a review for this book after reading it since i did not get along with this book. but since i felt like it was mostly for my own personal reasons why i didn't enjoy the book it wouldn't be fair towards the author and the book itself if i would publicise a negative review simply because this book didn't fit into my personal reading preferences. 
thank you for the opportunity to read this book even if it did not work out as we all had hoped.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Of course Anne would be drawn to Blake. He’s good looking, he’s friendly, and they both bring sob stories to the table: her parents died in a car wreck, his girlfriend, Cara, drowned. Of course Blake would understand what she’s gone through. And of course they can help each other work through the pain. It’s like it was meant to be.
But just as Anne starts to feel she’s finally found something good in all the tragedy, she can’t ignore signs that something’s off. Her friends rarely let her be alone with Blake. Even those closest to Blake seem uneasy around him. And then there are the rumors about the death of Cara, whose body was never recovered. Rumors that suggest Blake’s pain is hiding something darker than Anne can even begin to comprehend . . .

My Review:
I loved this book.  I received a copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review, and although it took me a while to get around to reading it, I'm really glad I did. Although it starts off slow, and I suspected it would be a relaxing easy read, this was a really exciting story once you get far enough into it. I expected it to be kind of slow and boring but was pleasantly surprised when there was mystery and action involved. 
Anne with an 'e' or E, as her friend calls her, has been through a terrible tragedy. Her parents were killed prior to the story, and she recently moved to a new place, in with her aunt and uncle who have no kids of their own. She then has to attend a new school, make new friends, and deal with her grief all at once. She meets a boy she likes and the story goes on. I did not expect the ending at all, and about half way through the book I realized, I can't put this down now! I need to finish it! 
All in all I read the full story in about 5 hours. It's a really good read, and I recommend you check it out. The cover is intriguing and I just love the characters, they really seem like they could be real people, and they act their age. I put off reading it for so long because it didn't seem like anything new at the beginning, but once you get into it you realize how good it really is. 

Thanks for reading! Check out this review and more on my blog.

A twisted little thriller. Anne is an orphan whose parents died in a car accident. She considers herself a tragedy girl. Of course, she would be drawn to Blake, who had cancer in his youth, and whose girlfriend drowned. They are drawn together, and Anne finds herself falling for him.

But some things bother her, like why Blake’s friends and brother try to keep her away, and how they all seem to be uneasy around him. Then there are rumors about Cara and how she really died, as well as the fact that her body was never recovered. Soon Anne finds herself pulling away from Blake, and questioning his tragedies.
