The Death of Us I am usually not a fan of books written in multiple POVs, I usually do not like books that start off with the end cliffhanger and then start from the beginning But in The Death of Us, all of the above worked in such a way that made me love this book so much.POVs, or point of views, are always important in a novel and as a reader I always tend to gravitate to onethan another, and that was no different in this novel Callie was my favourite I think because i was able to relate to her and wh I am usually not a fan of books written in multiple POVs, I usually do not like books

always important in a novel and as a reader I always tend to gravitate to onethan another, and that was no different in this novel Callie was my favourite I think because i was able to relate to her and what she was going through Having a friend move away and then move back can be hard on friendships and a family dynamic, especially one that has a new baby attached to it I also liked Callie s voice a lotthan anyone else because she was just so sweet and I felt like she was so genuine and seriously wanted to fit in Did she make some bad choices, of course she did but they made her character that much better than it already was.Ivy s character was one that I was not a fan of from the very beginning, and I don t think we are meant to like her She is the friend that wants all the attention, and hates it when someone steals it from her I liked her perspective on the story especially in contract with Callie s POV because they were so different And it showed how different people see the same situation is very extreme ways Kurt was the last and final POV and I loved his the most because he was in the middle of these two girls, and he knew both of them better than I think either of them thought Kurt was an interesting character because we only got is POV from the present, where as we got Ivy and Callie s POV from the past And what I loved the most about this book was the fact that every single one of these characters meant something to the story Each one affected the other and in the end, each one took part in the end game And seriously, THAT ENDING loved it so much I read an advance reader copy of this and really enjoyed it The sparing, poetic style is reminiscent of We Were Liars by E Lockhart as is the plotline, which combined present day actions with those of a few weeks before The three narrators have distinct voices, allowing you to really get to know Kurt, Ivy and Callie All that said, the action, mystery and suspense will make this a good pick for teens who

Why this number of stars The Cover This is the only part of the book I can agree with myself on I love it The three people depicted on the cover are the three people who tell the story and the sunset to me has always signified suspense as you never can know what the night may hold The Content I don t really know how I feel about this book Reading it made me almost uncomfortable Sometimes I felt like throwing the book across the room and other times I couldn t get enough My emotions were thrown around like your stomach on a tilt a whirl At times I didn t know where the story was taking me and at others I thought I had a grasp on what was going on only for the whole perspective to change by a turn of plot Character Development Callie, one of the main characters, came to terms with her sexual orientation through the course of the book, but the character I felt most proud of by the end of this book was her mother Her mother finally realized that she was neglecting her child and needed to reconnect with her I really didn t like Ivy s character at all She compulsively lied and didn t seem to regret it She reminded me of those mean girls in high school who are always going to parties and are pretty shallow on the whole.Would I read the second book Honestly, I m not sure I might read other books by Mrs Kuipers, but I would not read the sequel to this book.Find Callie is

got new covers to disguise the fact they were enjoying young adult novels I expect the same will begin to happen to Alice Kuipers after The Death of Us Yes, this is a young adult novel, but adults will want to read it and then talk about it with their friends Was not a fan of the writing style The characters were interesting, but not totally captivating I wasn t really invested in the story Review to come. This is not a long book, very quick read, but packs quite an impact It s a coming of age story of Callie, a good girl, whose estranged best friend Ivy comes back to town after a three year absence Despite her parents wishes because of things from the past, Callie finds herself unable to stay away from Ivy, Callie spreads her wings a little, has some normal teenage fun and discovers truths about herself A quick read, but definitely intense, spellbinding and worth reading. A Recovered Friendship, A Dark Secret, And A Love Triangle With A Deadly Angle Callie Is Shocked When Her Friend Ivy Reappears After An Unexplained Three Year Absence, But The Girls Pick Up Where They Left Off, And Suddenly Callie S Summer Is Full Of Parties, Boys And Fun Beneath The Surface, Things Aren T What They Seem, However, And When A Handsome Boy With A Dark Past Gets Tangled Up With Ivy, The Girls History Threatens To Destroy Their Future Not at all what I was expecting Minor issues, but overall very enjoyable.
