The Lovereading4Kids comment
July 2015 Book of the Month June and Delia had an intense relationship, the kind that is all important, all-consuming even, but hard to maintain. In fact, when June hears the terrible news that Delia has died, they hadn’t spoken for over a year. Then Delia’s ex-boyfriend reveals to June that he thinks she might have been murdered and June feels that she owes it to her friend to find out what really happened. The twists come thick and fast, to keep readers guessing, and tense, and the ending is a real shocker! A thriller for readers who like them dark! ~ Andrea Reece

- Izzy Read - 'This is a perfect summer book, with a nice, juicy dark streak running right down the middle that leaves you guessing until the very last page. Trust me, I had to read the end a total of seven times!'
- Maisie Sadler - 'A gripping story. I thought it was so carefully written and had a great effect on me as the reader! I would recommend.'
- Destiny Maraj - 'This novel was absolutely amazing! I adored reading it. I loved the plot and really wasn't expecting the outcome.'
- Edel Waugh - 'The story is a dark one filled with manipulative characters and unnerving scenes made all the worse by how unpredictable and unreliable the narrators are...If you like a book with twists and turns then this is the book for you.'
Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten
When June met Delia, she was a lifeline. Their intense friendship gave her a sense of belonging, of security, that she'd never had before. She felt braver, smarter, funnier, more attractive when Delia was around. But then something went wrong, and Delia and June haven't spoken for a year when an announcement is made at their school that Delia is dead.
June barely has time to mourn before Delia's ex-boyfriend convinces her that Delia didn't kill herself but was in fact murdered, and June is fast swept into a tangle of lies and deceit - and a conspiracy she can barely conceive of, never mind believe.
'[This] reminded me of a dark Sweet Valley High in places ... The chapters also cleverly alternative perspective and in general I think there are some really interesting story-telling tactics used'
'I found myself absolutely hooked and the ending absolutely blew me away. This book is compared to Gone Girl and Thirteen Reasons Why but having read both I actually think this book is far far superior'
'If Gone Girl was the book of the year, then Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls is the book of the decade'
'Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls kept things fresh, unique and definitely left me totally shocked by the ending; just the way I like it'
