Review: Read Me Dead by Emerald Barnes

Reviewer: Justine
Rating: 4 out of 5 Fairies

Read Me Dead by Emerald Barnes had me crying rivers! Emerald was super sneaky, giving us a sleeper story: starting slowly, then reeling you in with an almighty love triangle, and finally the peak of ripping your heart out halfway through. 

Emerald Barnes starts us out slowly until we reach chapter 3 or 4. By chapter 15, I was well and truly hooked and at chapter 26 or 27, she tears my heart out. I cried for two hrs! (I’m hormonal, but still!) Damn YA reads have been, as Bex would say, “Bloody Amazing” lately!

That leaves us with the ending, and oh what and ending it was! This ending is most definitely ‘Justine approved’, and she even left a squeak of an opening for a second book. Although to be honest, the ending was so wonderful, I don’t think a second is even needed. 

Goodreads Synopsis
Alexia Wheaton’s problems go beyond picking a dress and a date for homecoming.

For seven years, Alex has lived with a painful memory - her parents' horrific murder. As the sole witness, she has kept quiet to protect herself, but when the local newspaper reveals her secret, Alex is plagued with fear that her parents' murderer will soon find her - and silence her forever.

Alex is catapulted into a race against time to save her own life and bring her parents' murderer to justice.
