Release Date: April 8 2014
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Format: ARC Paperback
Sophie Winters nearly died. Twice.
The first time, she's fourteen, and escapes a near-fatal car accident with scars, a bum leg, and an addiction to Oxy that'll take years to kick.
The second time, she's seventeen, and it's no accident. Sophie and her best friend Mina are confronted by a masked man in the woods. Sophie survives, but Mina is not so lucky. When the cops deem Mina's murder a drug deal gone wrong, casting partial blame on Sophie, no one will believe the truth: Sophie has been clean for months, and it was Mina who led her into the woods that night for a meeting shrouded in mystery.
After a forced stint in rehab, Sophie returns home to a chilly new reality. Mina's brother won't speak to her, her parents fear she'll relapse, old friends have become enemies, and Sophie has to learn how to live without her other half. To make matters worse, no one is looking in the right places and Sophie must search for Mina's murderer on her own. But with every step, Sophie comes closer to revealing all: about herself, about Mina and about the secret they shared
I was really happy with Far From You. It was an emotional read with a lot of ups and downs. This is a heart breaking read that will leave you in tears. It really is a testament to one girls love for her best friend. After Mina is murdered Sophie does everything she can to hunt down her killer. But she was not prepared in the slightest for all of the answers that she is about to receive.
Tess Sharpe's debut novel is breath taking in all of it's edgy and realistic content. I am a big fan and hope that this book reaches a wide audience. A true love story with a not so happy ending but beautiful at the same time. One girls chance to make everyone in her life believe in her again and a chance to bring some justice to Mina.
I honestly loved it. Every single second of it. I could not put the book down until every last page was read. There is something about this book that will capture a piece of your heart and shatter it into a million pieces. Far From You is bound to be one of 2014's top read books.
You will want to take the journey with Sophie to catch Mina's killer and also watch as Sophie finds her place.
