A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend By Emily Horner

Not just a unique and catchy title, but a compelling novel that surprises with twists and turns down the  long road of discovery.

After the death of her best friend Julia, Cass goes on the road trip that she and Julia were planning. As Cass travels across the states, she discovers herself, meets individual people and has entertaining and experiences along the way.

I loved this book. As soon as I saw it, I was drawn in by the distinct title, the simple but funky cover and the overwhelming need to know what the book was about.
I loved the characters, I felt that they were real and well-developed, making them entertaining and believable. 
Written int the style of Now, being the present -after the road trip, and Then, during the road trip; written in a sort-of chapter format.

A love story starring my dead best friend was original, thought provoking. As Cass was cycling across the states, she undergoes a journey, physical and emotional, with you along for the ride.

I highly recommend this book for girls aged 13 - 16. Fans of Luisa Plaja (The Kiss series) will love this quirky new novel.
