Publisher Description

An arresting un-coming-of-age story, from a breathtaking talent

Becca has always longed to break free from her small, backwater hometown. But the discovery of an unidentified dead girl on the side of a dirt road sends the town--and Becca--into a tailspin. Unable to make sense of the violence of the outside world creeping into her backyard, Becca finds herself retreating inward, paralyzed from moving forward for the first time in her life.

Short chapters detailing the last days of Amelia Anne Richardson's life are intercut with Becca's own summer as the parallel stories of two young women struggling with self-identity and relationships on the edge twist the reader closer and closer to the truth about Amelia's death.

A Dead Amelia Anne Is Dead And Gone

It is summer in New England and nobody mentions the Red Sox. That is the problem with Kat’s story of New England teenagers, Amelia Anne Is Dead And Gone. With the exception of dead Amelia Anne, and she is a little older, nobody has any passion. They aren’t excited about music, sports, vehicles, or anything else. They don’t even argue about which kind of beer is best! The young characters seem more like the way they perceive their grandparents.
There seems to be a big interest in stories about boring people and dysfunctional families and that is Amelia Anne. If you want characters with passion go elsewhere.
