A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn't mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie's life. That includes taking her job... and her boyfriend. It's a huge risk — but it's just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world.

My Thoughts

I have mixed feelings about this book.  The first half of the book I seriously hated and then the last half I started actually caring about the main character, Hawthorn.  I thought the whole premise of the book was to find out what happened to Lizzie Lovett, but it kind of started that way then the book turned into a totally different route.

I wanted to know what happened to Lizzie at first, then I just didn't care anymore about her.  I also couldn't stand how the author always referred to her with her first name and last name, just call her Lizzie, god I don't want to read Lizzie Lovett, over and over again. I also hated the aspect of the book when Hawthorn thought Lizzie was turned into a werewolf, seriously a werewolf, where the hell did you even get that scenario.  Plus, why does Hawthorn even care about Lizzie, you never liked her, so why go through all the trouble searching for her.

Then towards the last half of the book, I actually started liking Hawthorn, as weird as that is.  She started hanging around Lizzie's boyfriend, Enzo, which is kind of strange.  They started hanging out alot together and eventually start actually dating, which is weird, but whatever.  I honestly felt sooo bad for Hawthorn when Enzo stood her up for homecoming or prom, (I don't remember which).

I felt like Hawthorn was a very troubled girl and I think she grow up a little throughout the book.  I thought the ending was really cute, on who was crushing on Hawthorn.  So overall this book was okay, would I ever read it again, NO, would I recommend it, probably not.

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
