5- Amazing!! I want to read it again!

Goodreads summary:

Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.

This is not her story.

Unless you count the part where I killed her.

Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison's condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can't explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori -- the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that's impossible. Right?


This book was amazing! It made me laugh, cry, smile and scream at the characters. It was just amazing. I didn’t really know what to expect when I started reading this book but the summary had gripped me so bad that I had to read it and I wasn’t disappointed when I finished it.
I’ve haven’t read any of R.J. Anderson’s other book but straight away I liked her writing style, it was clear and straight to the point.

I loved Alison’s character she was very unique and well rounded and I loved how she was able to hear colours and see sounds etc, it made the story different from anything else I’ve read and I loved it. Faraday… I loved Faraday so much, he just seemed like a small character and the BAM he’s one of the most important character in there, when I started reading I didn’t see that coming, but I glad that he was!

The plot was fast paced and easy to follow, the characters had depth and were realistic, the writing was amazing and the story was extraordinary. A story that will keep you guessing and a romance that you will fall in love with, if you see this book you have to buy and read it because you will not be disappointed… believe me!
