I have to say that I loved the names of the characters in Nearly Gone. They were new and tied into the title. I loved that there wasn't an insta-love. This book is a rare read and I will definitely be grabbing an extra copy soon. Nearly Gone is full of mystery, a killer who loves puzzles, and an unbelievable end you won't see coming. I loved the cover and the story. It has a great mystery and even better love story. I can't wait to see what else this author has in store for us.
Bones meets Fringe in a big, dark, scary, brilliantly-plotted urban thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end
Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother's job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone's skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn't trust: the new guy at school--a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.
Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn't figure it all out soon--she'll be next.
