Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

Vera Dietz and Charlie Kahn have been best friends since they could walk. They love the same music, know what each other is thinking. Both share the feeling that they have to escape the history of their parents. However, things have pulled them apart, and now Charlie is dead. Only Vera can clear his name, but she can't seem to talk about the day.
This book was really very good. I loved the characters of Vera and Charlie and how well they seemed to match. From the plot it seems like it would be an overly dramatic, paranormal thriller. But it wasn't at all. It did unfold like a murder mystery, every chapter revealed a little more about Vera and Charlie and why he died, but the voices of the characters were biting, witty, and sweet.  Really enjoyed it.

5 Stars
