Sparks fly between two teens as they grapple with grief, love, and the future.
Eighteen-year-old Amelia Griffin is obsessed with the famous Orman Chronicles, written by the young and reclusive prodigy N. E. Endsley. They’re the books that brought her and her best friend Jenna together after Amelia’s father left and her family imploded. So when Amelia and Jenna get the opportunity to attend a book festival with Endsley in attendance, Amelia is ecstatic. It’s the perfect way to start off their last summer before college.
In a heartbeat, everything goes horribly wrong. When Jenna gets a chance to meet the author and Amelia doesn’t, the two have a blowout fight like they’ve never experienced. And before Amelia has a chance to mend things, Jenna is killed in a freak car accident. Grief-stricken, and without her best friend to guide her, Amelia questions everything she had planned for the future.
When a mysterious, rare edition of the Orman Chronicles arrives, Amelia is convinced that it somehow came from Jenna. Tracking the book to an obscure but enchanting bookstore in Michigan, Amelia is shocked to find herself face-to-face with the enigmatic and handsome N. E. Endsley himself, the reason for Amelia’s and Jenna’s fight and perhaps the clue to what Jenna wanted to tell her all along.
Amelia Unabridged was such an unforgettable read. I really did love the storyline and the characters in it. The book deals with lost and finding yourself along the way. I thought it was well written and I like the cover to it a lot. You see the main character, Amelia on the cover looking lost.
I really like Amelia in this book. In the beginning she becomes a huge book nerd and have fallen in love with a new fantasy series. Jenna and her been friends forever, have their lives plan out even going to same colleges. I enjoy how they first met at the bookstore.
Sadly after a fight during a signing event, the girls drift a part. Then one day, Jenna suddenly passed away. Amelia is left alone to pick up the pieces and carry on Jenna plan for her. Suddenly a mysterious package arrives and now she goes looking for answers in Michigan. Soon Amelia starting to feel like she to belong here, but she can’t disappoint her friend wishes even after in death…
What will Amelia will do?
This book was so many emotions. It deals with grief and finding out where you belong. Amelia deals with the pressures to stick to Jenna plans for her, and Jenna’s family happy. When she goes discover what Jenna left her, Amelia starts enjoying things she loves again. Also questions what she wants out of life, beside the plan. She just wants to make everyone happy, despite making herself happy. Its one of those books you read in one sitting and fall in love.
Amelia Unabridged is prefect for people who love the setting that takes place in a bookstore and have a cute doggie in it. Such a cute read on learning to love and dealing with grief…..
