Snippet: "It made her feel horrible for days after."
Summary: "Looking For JJ" explores the circumstances and motives behind the murder of a child - by her best friend. Seven years later, JJ has now been released, and has a new identity. But is there any way that she can lead a "normal" life?
Review: Looking for JJ was an interesting book. I thought it was alright but nothing overly special.
The main thing that kept me reading was what happened to JJ, what caused her to murder someone, and who did she murder. I was also expecting the ending to be something crazy. But no, the ending was a bit sad in some ways but at the same time it made the book a little pointless.
I think the characters I liked were Frankie and Rosie. They seemed pretty cool.
I also felt that part of the book doesn't connect with the other part. The JJ part and the Alice part, to me it just seems like there was something missing between the two.
Overall, I think that Looking For JJ was an entertaining read but it wasn't anything overly special. If you have some spare time and you like suspenseful novels then this book is for you.
