I liked this dark and twisty book and connected with Jeremy. He was a complicated character with a lot of problems, and only found more as the book went along. It was very realistic when dealing with the medical aspects though. He lost a leg and had a long battle to healing and recovery, and none of it was skimmed over. Jeremy is such a joker on the outside, but underneath, he is dealing with a lot. He has issues with water, ptsd, drinking, and then he, the track star, lost his leg. There are several players in this story, and I never knew what to think, what happened to Suzannah, or what other secrets were floating around. It was quite a journey as Jeremy tried to uncover truths, and struggled with himself whether he was insane, and I, as the reader, often wondered that as well since his mother had the history of mental illness. For the most part it feels like a contemporary, but there are scenes with ghostly presences, and seeming messages and dreams from beyond the grave, so it mostly read like a mystery and thriller, and a good one at that. I liked the ending, and though at a couple of parts it felt a bit rushed to tie up all of the ends, it definitely left me flipping through the pages needing to find the answers to the questions unearthed in the book. Everything was answered and although there were a few people that didn't quite get their hea, they still have the best possible for what the story threw at them. Bottom Line: Dark mystery that left me flipping pages eager to know what more

I loved this book! the character of Jeremy Glass is heartbreaking and made me want to climb into the story and stand up for him time and time again. He is such a broken and sweet boy who has no clue what he is getting into and no one to look up to. The Mystery: where is Susannah? is she really dead? is Jeremy going crazy just like his mother did? and if Susannah is dead who killed her? Jeremy is afried that time is running out for him to find her, because he just might be the next victim. Susannah was a very complex character who you want to hate but you just end up feeling bad for because she had a horrible life. Susannah who has gone missing is starting to send Jeremy messages from the other side or maybe he is just going crazy, it is possible. His mother was crazy they say and she did drive herself off that bridge but then you can't always believe what people say in town for they are all under the thumb of one man, Patrick Morgan. Patrick Morgan was the ultimate bad guy smooth as silk when it came to public appearances but behind the scenes was a right a-hole! there were about a hundred times I wanted to jump right into the book myself and strangle the man for his high handed ways. His son is the town Golden Boy who every girl wants to have, every boy wants to be and is Jeremy's Best friend and Susannah's boyfriend. This book was amazing! I cried for Jeremy's heartache and pain. I savoured each and every word! Lisa Amowitz is a amazingly talented writer and I enjoyed myself immensely in her world of fiction. The Book does have a back and forth between the past and the present but without it the story couldn't be told properly. Lisa did an wonderful job on this book and I for one am now a huge fan!show more
