“Far From You” Tess Sharpe

Rated 5 stars ***** 2014. Hyperion (Disney Book Group). 341 pp.

FarFromYouSophie was always in constant pain after a horrible car accident when she was just 14 years old. Oxy pills were her only relief as she learned to walk again, and even her best friend, neighbor and soul mate Mina couldn’t completely take away the pain. After spending the next 3 years addicted to Oxy, Mina intervenes and saves her from the death trap of drug addiction into which she was spiraling.

Now 17, Sophie is the prime suspect in a murder investigation because of a supposed drug deal gone badly. Mina is dead, but no one will believe that she has been clean for 6 months and didn’t have anything to do with buying drugs or killing her best friend. After being locked up in rehab for 3 months, Sophie has one thought in mind: revenge. She will find out who killed Mina and get justice. Unfortunately the murderer knows she’s looking, and will stop at nothing to remain hidden – even if it means murdering again.

This tension filled mystery, told through flashbacks, will keep readers eagerly turning pages to find out whodunit.

Recommended for ages 14 and older.

As a School Librarian, I was Co-Chair of REFORMA's (The National Association to Promote Library Services to the Latinos and Spanish Speaking) CAYASC (Children & Young Adult Services Committee) for 2 yrs. As Co-Chair, I was in charge of all things YA. I have been a member of YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) for many years, and have worked as a school librarian for many years. When I'm not blogging, I like to read, run, race and sing - not necessarily in that order. My blog reviews books I enjoyed (or didn't enjoy), which leaves you to ask yourself "Should I Read it or Not?"
