Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone
by Kat Rosenfeld
Published by: Dutton Books
Released on: July 5th, 2012
The first thing that caught my attention about this novel was the different storyline than all the others out there. It sounded very mysterious, yet a bit creepy at the same time. When you live in a small town and a big scandal goes down, nobody feels protected anymore. Everyone is suddenly on guard and whispers run rapid throughout the town. Kat Rosenfeld has created a wonderfully mysterious novel and she holds remarkable writing skills. Many times I felt like I had been sucked into an adult novel, only to be reminded that the characters were my young favorites I so deeply love. Kat is truly gifted and I look forward to more from her.
In Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone, there are many times that you think you know all the clues, know just how things are going, and then they change directions completely. We get to meet Rebecca and Amelia Anne (of course). At times I wasn't quite sure just where the story was taking me, but held tight and learned many facts about the things you "just know" about the small town that Rebecca lives in. The very same town that Amelia has appeared dead in. As people act suspicious, secrets are held in, and things start to unfold, lives will change forever. With all the scenarios I had running through my head, I never seen this one coming at all.
