Catching You

"Catching You" by Katie Gallagher is a very interesting read since it's not your typical "who-done-it."  Confession... I judged this book by its cover, and I was right!  I knew as soon as I saw the cover that it was going to be different, but good. Overall rating... 5 stars!

Here is why I fell in love with it.  First, it is well-written.  I'm not just talking about having good grammar here either.  The characters have substance to them, and there is not an overwhelming amount of teen drama.  Don't get it twisted, there is teen drama, but it is actually there for a reason, so it works!  Second, I actually could not guess who the murder was (bonus points for Gallagher)!  There are great twists that keep you guessing throughout the book.  Third, the "creep level" was perfect for the young adult genre.  As a reader, you aren't sure which characters to trust, but you won't be with nightmares either.  And finally, it was a quick read.  I plan on taking this one to the beach with me to read it again.

Synopsis:
This was supposed to be the best summer of Lauren’s life. It turns out to be the worst.

Now, she’s even more determined to learn the truth about Ryan’s death and she wonders who she’s able to trust. She starts confiding in her best friend, Bryn, until she remembers something about the accident that makes her wonder if she’s trusted the wrong person the entire time.
