Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight

Reconstructing AmeliaReconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reconstructing Amelia is a very engaging story that captivates the reader. Told through the eyes of Amelia through flashbacks and various text messages and social media posts, and present day stories of her mother Kate,  Amelia's story revolves around a fancy private school and a secret club which leads to her suicide, or so her mother believed until she received a cryptic text message saying that Amelia did not jump. Struggling through grief and guilt, Kate must make sense of the message and begin to examine her daughters life to discover the truth. Even though the author built to a big reveal, the ending was not as dramatic as I had hoped for. Despite some of the challenges, I really enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a mystery.

  1. I read another book, of course can't recall the title, with tweets. I had a hard time adapting but I managed. It must be a new genre. This book does sound interesting.
