Review: Far from you by Tess Sharpe

Nine months. Two weeks. Six days.

That's how long recovering addict Sophie's been drug-free. Four months ago her best friend, Mina, died in what everyone believes was a drug deal gone wrong - a deal they think Sophie set up. Only Sophie knows the truth. She and Mina shared a secret, but there was no drug deal. Mina was deliberately murdered.

Forced into rehab for an addiction she'd already beaten, Sophie's finally out and on the trail of the killer - but can she track them down before they come for her?

My thoughts
I tried to read this on my kindle and struggled to know what was going on and gave up with it. I then received a paperback copy which made the differentiation between time periods more clear and therefore so much easier to know what was going on and it had me hooked. The paperback wins again over the kindle.

I loved this book for a variety of reasons most of which I can't talk about for fear of spoiling the book. The murder mystery side was suspenseful and made me want to keep reading to know what was going to happen next. I loved being made to guess all the way through until the very end.

I loved how the relationships weren't completely straight forward and how that fact made the book that bit different from every other YA book out there. It made for a far more interesting story especially when you looked back over previous events and the way in which the characters reacted. Yay for being a bit different

Just a fab read all in all and one I'd definitely recommend.
