Book Review: Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls (2015) by Lynn Weingarten

Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls (2015) by Lynn Weingarten

The synopsis goes like this: They say Delia burned herself to death in her father’s shed. They sat it was suicide. But June doesn’t believe it. June and Delia used to be best friends in that way that comes before everyone else – before guys, before family. It was like being in love, except more. They had an infinite number of secrets, tying them together like thin silk cords. “Secrets tie you together”, Delia often say to June.

But one night a year ago, everything changed. June, Delia and June’s boyfriend, Ryan, were just having a little fun. Their good time got out of hand. An in the cold blue light of morning, June knew only this – things would never be the same again. Now Delia is dead. June is certain she was murdered. And she owes it to her to find out the truth… which is far more complicated that she ever could have imagined… That’s it, as for the rest of the story, read this book… or… maybe you should consider first…

Suicide, pressure, broken family, relationship issues, BGR and sexually confused are popular themes nowadays. Have you watched or read Gone Girl? A bit of that element though. How about 13 Reasons Why book or series? Sort of like that but a bit less. Besides Nicholas Spark’s novels I seldom read on romance and much less about suicide (oh I love mystery and action novels). Why I picked up this book? I’m not sure. Storyline perhaps. Nice book cover, of course. Or I’m just curious about girl-and-girl relationship. Maybe all of the above. I like this book because of its twisted plot and intense in almost all pages. This book kept me guessing (though all of my predictions are almost right) and somewhat shocking conclusion (but not surprise). What I don’t like is… well, this book can be shorter, contain lots of vulgar language and this lesbian-best-friend-ism (spoiler!) make me uncomfortable…

But then again, maybe an uncomfortable book is good something :)
