Book Review: Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne

Truly, Madly, Deadly Sawyer Dodd’s boyfriend Kevin is dead. They said he was drinking and crashed his car, a tragic end to the young life of a star athlete. Then Sawyer receives a note in her locker, accompanied by a newspaper clipping about Kevin’s wreck. The note reads “You’re welcome”. Someone knows that Sawyer and Kevin’s relationship wasn’t perfect. Someone has been following Sawyer. And now others might be at risk.

Why I picked it up: My Roosevelt book club wanted a murder mystery that was fast paced.

Why I finished it: It is really fast paced and keeps the reader guessing as to the identity of Sawyer’s stalker. It even had me thinking maybe she had a split personality. There were some inconsistencies and a few things that happened that seemed completely unbelievable to me (as an adult) but that teens may not even notice or care about.

Readalikes: What Happened to Cass McBride by Gail Giles, Wake (trilogy) by Lisa McMann, Identical by Ellen Hopkins, You by Charles Benoit. It reminded me of the R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike books I used to read as a teen.
