Saving Zoe – Alyson Noel

SavingZoe

In Saving Zoe, one sister’s secrets save the other’s life–in more ways than one. Meet fifteen-year-old Echo, a typical teen trying to survive high school without being totally traumatized by boy trouble, friend drama, and school issues.  As if she didn’t have enough on her plate, Echo is also still dealing with the murder of her sister Zoë.  Although it’s been over a year, Echo is still reeling from tragedy that changed everything.  Beautiful and full of life, Zoë was the glue that held her family together, and although the two sisters were as different as night and day, they still had a bond that Echo can’t let go of.  When Zoë’s old boyfriend Marc shows up one day with Zoë’s diary, Echo doesn’t think there’s anything in there she doesn’t already know.  But as she gives in to curiosity and starts reading, she learns that her sister led a secret life that no one could have guessed–not even Echo.

This was a really, really good book.  Echo is just reeling after her sister’s death.  I can’t imagine what that would be like, but her anger, frustration, and utter bewilderment are absolutely believable.  Her relationships with her best friends, her sister’s ex, and her current boyfriend all come into jeopardy…can she hold it together?  Recommended.  – Jessica, Teen Librarian
