Goodreads:     A dark and moving novel—reminiscent of Thirteen Reasons Why—about the mystery surrounding a teenage girl’s fatal overdose.There was something about Ellie…Something dangerous. Charismatic. Broken. Jake looked out for her. Sarah followed her lead. And Jess kept her distance—and kept watch.

     Now Ellie’s dead, and Jake, Sarah, and Jess are left to pick up the pieces. All they have are thirty-four clues she left behind. Thirty-four strips of paper hidden in a box beneath her bed. Thirty-four secrets of a brief and painful life.

     Jake, Sarah, and Jess all feel responsible for what happened to Ellie, and all three have secrets of their own. As they confront the past, they will discover not only the darkest truths about themselves, but also what Ellie herself had been hiding all along…

Ope’s Opinion:  This book was not what I thought it was going to be.  After I read the synopsis,  I thought this going to be a mystery.  To me this book  became  about a girl exploring her sexuality and not being able to deal with her feeling for another female.  This was definitely a dark novel.  The constant use of the “f” word added nothing to the story or the characters.

Rating:  Two Chairs – I may have one friend who might like this book.
             FTC – Disclosure of Material Connection:
