  6. Actual rating 3.5I liked the book It s the first YA I have read as an adult It made me think a lot of my own teenage years and also how some of the concerns you have then you can still have as an adult I found the main character to be in constant conflict with herself.I liked the idea of a teenage crime solver I think the writer has other books of this nature which I look forward to reading.It kept my interest throughout and enjoyed it.


  7. The reason why he committed suicide was so scary and sad It nearly blew my mind not to mention the unexpected ending.


  8. I thoroughly enjoyed Carol Hedges book, Jigsaw.I always love it if it feels as though I saw it on television, the characters seem real when that happens, don t you think
