Book Review

All Unquiet Things centers around the murder of teen heiress Carly Ribelli, who was found shot to death a mile from her house in a wealthy Northern California suburb. Carly’s uncle, a dissolute alcoholic, was convicted of the crime, but a year later his daughter still doesn’t believe her father is guilty. Determined to prove his innocence, Audrey Ribelli contacts Carly’s ex-boyfriend, Neily Monroe, the boy who found Carly’s body. She is convinced that he knows more than he thinks about the events that led up to Carly’s death. Despite Neily’s initial reluctance, he and Audrey begin their investigation at the posh private school they attend, identifying prime suspects from among their spoiled classmates and digging up secrets about Carly’s past to get to the truth behind her murder--

This book is awesome! If you like mystery and crime then this is the book for you. It reads like a basic "whodunit" novel but the characters are well-developed. Readers will relate to the feelings Neily has for losing his one true love. Each page reveals new information about the crime, and readers get to see the relationship between Neily and Audrey develop. This is the first novel by this author, and it is spectacular!
