Title: The Amateurs by Sara Shepard
Genre: Young Adult Mystery
Everyone’s dying to know the truth . . .
When Aerin Kelly was eleven, she idolised her seventeen-year-old sister, Helena, and they did everything together. They made Claymation movies and posted them to YouTube. They made fun of Windmere-Carruthers, the private school they attended, they invented new flavours for their parents’ organic ice cream shop, and they dressed up their golden retriever, Buster. But when Helena went into senior year things started to change. Rather than being Aerin’s inseparable sister, she started to push her away. Then, on a snowy winter’s day, Helena vanished.
Four years later, Helena’s body is found. Wracked with grief and refusing to give up on her sister, Aerin spends months trying to figure out what exactly happened to Helena and who killed her. But the police have no leads. A young, familiar officer named Thomas wants to help and suggests she checks out a website called Case Not Closed. Hesitantly, she posts, and when teenagers Seneca and Maddox show up on her doorstep offering to help investigate she accepts in desperation. Both have suffered their own losses and also posted to the site with no luck, so they are hoping this case might be the one they crack. But as their investigation begins, it seems that maybe it’s no accident that they are all together, and that maybe the crimes have something – or someone – in common.

Hey Guys and Welcome Back!
Can you believe we are already in November? I can’t!
Time is going by so quickly and I believe the year will be over with a blink of an eye. But in the meantime I want to come at you with some Money Saving posts!
Like me i’m assuming your here because you love books? You probably have an addiction to buying books as well don’t you? Hey no judging I promise. I’m guilty for that addiction. Lately I have been seeing so many good deals across the internet for books and I took to twitter to ask if you would like to see a post on this and some of you said yes. So here we are.
Rather than do a giant post on all the deals I have found, I have decided I will be doing individual posts dedicated to that place so that it’s not a super long post. Considering it’s nearly Christmas I thought this would be another great addition to my blog as we could all use that little bit extra of a saving at Christmas right?
**Please note that obviously I am not sponsored by any of the sites which I am featuring**
Today I am coming to you with Amazon deals!
Amazon for me is my go to place for buying books. I have Amazon Prime so I love being able to receive my orders the next day. Amazon is also full of amazing deals from super cheap to FREE books. So let’s explore what it has to offer shall we?
