Echo starts going out with her dead sister's boyfriend, but never once feels guilty about it. The ending is sad, but it was also very honest and wraps up the novel well. Echo's life hasn't been the same since, then Zoe's boyfriend Marc gives Echo Zoe's diary. Zoe's boyfriend Marc shows up with Zoe diary ,at first E go is not interested but soon becomes interested, when she starts reading she becomes so immersed in Zoe's secret world. As someone who works with youth online, we do our best to teach them of the dangers and pitfalls that can hide online. The theme of this book is basically how to find assurance and peace after someone close to you died.
It's been one year since Echo's sister, Zoe, was murdered by a man posing as someone taking modeling pictures. Best of all, if after reading an e-book, you buy a paper version of Night Star Immortals Series 5. Echo has a lot of confusion about her sister zoe she thought she knew her but one day at school her sisters ex boyfriend asked echo if he could talk to her and even though her parents thought he had somthing to do with the murder she decides to talk to him n. For instance, cool people do drugs. 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.
A cross between 13 Reasons Why and Speak. Hate, hate, hate, especially since Alyson Noël is an established author. Maria Carmo, Lisbon 19 April 2016. I am really not a big reader of any book that involves sexual abuse, stranger danger, or gruesome murders. Before I was even half-way through.
Zoë's diary entries are just as annoying - that's just not how you write in a diary. But, as a story goes, Saving Zoë is pretty freaking amazing. I would've probably given it 5 stars, but I guess it left me wanting a little more, lol. The use of drugs and drinking and partying, and the talk about sex being so casual and common, it really upset me. It felt as though Zoë was there all the way through and even though I felt Zoë was a normal teenager, she just made a few mistakes along the way but for her, she paid a very high price for them.
I stared at the toe of my black Converse sneaker, noticing how the fabric was wearing thin, and wondering what that lady could possibly need a picture for. This book has a very interesting topic. How on Earth can the author actually believe that so many teens drink and smoke and do drugs. Are they really being themselves, or are they pretending to be someone else? They all just personify that one characteristic. Also, gone on a bit more to what was in store for these characters that hopefully all of us have gotten to love.
I liked it, but, obviously it has major flaws. As I said before, the novel surprised me on a lot of levels. That's not saying I need books to have loads of action - I love books that are mainly about inner processes and character growth - but since there is none of that, either. I may have to see what other novels Noel has available in audio format and have another one work its way onto my iPod soon. Anyway, despite all this, this book wasnt one I regreted reading, since it leaves you some lessons although they are pretty obvious ones: dont arrange dates with weird people you meet on the internet, dont let anyone videotape you having sex, etc. Malory and Dana had to reach deep inside themselves to find their keys—and not without paying a price.
I wanted to like this more than I did, but at the end of the day I didn't think the characterization of Echo, the protag, was consistent enough. Can these two souls with so much at stake right undeniable wrongs and not only save the ones they love but to also save each other? It was entertaining enough that not only did I listen while exercising, but I worked in other times to listen to the story, hooked in by the narrator and the story itself. But her courage in the face of overwhelming odds cannot be underestimated. I would say more but I don't want to give too much away. So, I guess any story that can do that to the reader, that can pull you in so much that you hope for what you know will be impossible but still…any story that can accomplish such a feat must be pretty darn good. How she ended up on a quest for a key to unlock the soul of a warrior demigoddess is another story… Invited to an imposing estate overlooking the town, she met Malory Price and Dana Steele.
In many cases, young adult novels serve as a solid distraction as the miles go by without demanding that I hang on every word and stop paying attention to my pace or things coming up ahead like mud, vehicles, fellow runners or roaming animals. Outside of her believing that she's never wrong and knows what's best for everyone including the adults in her life, a pet peeve of mine , she's very milk toast. Are they really being themselves, or are they pretending to be someone else? Disappointing, given I like loss books and I like sister books. At first Echo's not interested, doubting It's been one year since the brutal murder of her older sister, Zoë, and fifteen-year-old Echo is still reeling from the aftermath. Or should I say young adult novels as audio books to listen to while I'm working out in this case, running.
Life is really starting to happen and dealing with that should be really exciting to watch. But as she gives in to curiosity and starts reading, she learns that her sister led a secret life that no one could have guessed 151;not even Echo. I think Echo wants to go thorough experiences that Zoe had gone through because it could make her feel more connected to Zoe. I think every female should read this, or a story similar, because it gives us all that little reminder to be aware of who we talk to on the internet. Echo has a lot of confusion about her sister zoe she thought she knew her but one day at school her sisters ex boyfriend asked echo if he could talk to her and even though her parents thought he had somthing to do with the murder she decides to talk to him n.
