I really enjoyed Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls! I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the writing and how engrossed in the story I became. The main character June reminds me of me and my friends in high school, unwittingly naive. I found her to be a very realistic high school aged character which is refreshing. The story was great. The thriller aspects where perfectly laid out to where you can figure it out, but your still unsure until the author reveals it. And the ending left me hanging on the edge, but in a good way. I don't usually like endings left open to interpretation, but it really suited this story. ( )

First, I will say I highly recommend this book for a specific audience of teenage girls. When I say I "really liked it," I say it with the enthusiasm of someone who loved Tori Spelling in "Mother, May I sleep with Danger" and "Sexting in Suburbia." I toyed with the idea of giving it a 3, but I cannot tell a lie. It starts off as a relatable tale of abandoned friendship. As most girls know, broken friendships are the hardest breakups, and this book deals with the guilt, sadness, and betrayal of moving on. In many ways, our childhood friendships are like marriages. There's no one you spend more time with, no other who will indulge you and your silly pastimes and jokes like a best friend, and no other relationship where your secrets don't have to be told. Of course most of these friendships will fade or fall apart with age and someone has to deal with the guilt of the breakup. On that level, this book made a lot of sense and there are certainly some quotable-quotes.

Just when I thought I knew where this was going, the book took a sharp left turn toward Lifetime Movie Network- that's not a dis. I love Lifetime movies. However, it needs to be said that while the book keeps it's mysterious edge, the book lost sight of reason, motivation, and true understanding of the characters. I just didn't get June. Delia, spoiler-spoiler-spoiler. In no way do I mean stop reading this book. It was more likeable for it's Lifetiminess. If you are looking for exemplary development or themes that pass the test of time, look further. But if you get excited every Saturday night for your DVR to start recording the latest Lifetime flick- you are in for a treat, my friend! A fun read- YA readers will forgive (or ignore) any disconnecting plot points or jumps. ( )

They say Delia burned herself to death in her stepfather's shed, but June does not believe it was suicide because she and Delia used to be closer than anything, but one night a year ago, everything changed when they and June's boyfriend Ryan let their good time get out of hand, and now, a year later, June owes it to Delia to know if her best friend committed suicide or was murdered.… (more)
