It's been one year since the brutal murder of her sister, Zoë, and fifteen year old Echo is still reeling from the aftermath. Her parents are numb, her friends are moving on, and the awkward start to her freshman year proves she'll never live up to her sister's memory.
Until Zoë's former boyfriend Marc shows up with her diary.
At first Echo's not interested, doubting there's anything in there she doesn't already know. But when curiosity prevails, she starts reading, becoming so immersed in her sister's secret world, their lives begin to blur, forcing Echo to uncover the truth behind Zoë's life, so that she can start to rebuild her own.______________________________________________________
Saving Zoe, by Alyson Noel, is a wonderful book about the struggles Echo is dealing with, like the stress of her sister's death and having to deal with the staring and whispering at her from school.
This book is packed with so many emotions like being scared, excitement, depression, anxiousness, and hope. Saving Zoe made me sad and made me laugh. I could really feel Echo's grief for her sister.
I also loved the passages from Zoe's dairy--I just couldn't stop reading.
Overall, I'd recommend anyone who reads books to read this wonderful book. I think if you are under the age of 13 you should consider asking you parents if you could read this book.
