Sixteen-year-old Liz is Photogirl—sharp, focused and confident in what she sees through her camera lens. Confident that she and Kate will be best friends forever.But everything changes in one blurry night. Suddenly, Kate is avoiding her, and people are looking the other way when she passes in the halls. As the aftershocks from a startling accusation rip through Liz's world, everything she thought she knew about photography, family, friendship and herself shifts out of focus. What happens when the picture you see no longer makes sense? What do you do when you may lose everything you love most?
My thoughts:
This was a fantastic book, it was just too short. I wish she would have made it longer and not covered such a long time period in a short book. The fact that it was so short took away from the plot and character development.
If you like books written in lyrical format you will enjoy this book. Just be prepared to have to fill in a lot of gaps. Also this book will appeal to reluctant readers!
