Amelia Anne Is Dead and Gone

Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone - Kat Rosenfield 3.5 stars. Lush, intriguing and gorgeously written. The central relationship felt real, the small town was depicted perfectly. Sometimes the prose itself was a problem - too much, too thick. And I wasn't shocked or surprised by the ending - for either Amelia or Becca. And in a book like this, I needed that moment.
