Kate Baron is devastated when she is informed that her daughter Amelia has committed suicide. Then she receives an anonymous text "Amelia didn't jump". Kate dives into the investigation, reconstructing what happened to her daughter.
This is absolutely heart wrenching within the first twenty pages. Told with the aid of blog posts, texts, diary entries and emails for both mother and daughter we switch between Amelia (first person and leading up to her death) and Kate (third person and the after math). This jumping was annoying at first, it felt like two separate books almost as if the author couldn't settle on how to tell the story. I have to say the switch was jarring to go from painful tragedy to mundane school life. Then it was brilliant. In depth veins into the life pre- and post death for either woman. Disturbingly honest about the mother/daughter relationship. Really "How much would you tell your mother?"
A solid mystery and drama. So many secrets and layers it kept me guessing till the end. Addictive. Pulled me along the entire way, I really wanted to know the who/what/where/why. It became an obsession.
