I enjoyed this book. The entire book is a series of letters that Zoe writes to a convicted murder who is sentenced to death. She admits to being a murderer and reveals the a little bit of the story in each letter. I found myself thinking that I would just read one more letter before putting the book down. Its a quick read.

"Fifteen-year-old Zoe can't help but blame herself when her stormy relationship with two brothers -- Max, whom she dated, and Aaron, whom she loved -- ends in a tragic death. Unable to contain her grief and guilt, she pours out her heart in a series of letters to the only person she thinks might understand: a murderer on Death Row. Clues about who died and how Zoe was involved are revealed at a deliberate, deliciously suspenseful pace in this wry, insightful, and deeply felt page-turner. For another intriguing confession laced with doomed romance, check out The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan."

That's not how you're going to live, Bird Girl. Not on my account. Spread those strong wings of yours. Fly.
