Josephine A, a blog follower and free lance writer, left a comment suggesting I include Reconstructing Amelia By Kimberly McCreight on Joyce's Choices. She said that it reminded her of the bestseller Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn but thought it was even more inciteful and engaging and had a better ending.
She also included a blurb from the New York Times which I posted below:
By Kimberly McCreight
In Ms. McCreight’s first novel, a mystery with enough red herring to stock Lake Michigan, Amelia is a teenager who falls to her death from the roof of her Brooklyn private school. It’s ruled a suicide. But her mother, Kate, an ambitious lawyer raising Amelia by herself, receives a text message after the tragedy: “Amelia didn’t jump.”
Chapters that track Kate’s attempts to learn the truth alternate with flashbacks from Amelia’s perspective, in which she struggles against social pressures, including the hazing rituals of a secretive school club. Facebook updates and strings of text messages also help tell the story....
Reconstructing Amelia sounds like a timely read and a riviting debut novel from Kimberly McCreight. Thankyou Josephine A. for the book recommendation.
Please don't hesitate to leave a comment below or email me if you read anything you think is worth mentioning. (Old, new or otherwise!)
