Far From You
Far From You | Tess Sharpe
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.

This one has all the feels! Pretty hard hitting for a YA book, tackling handicapping injury, addiction, same sex attraction, loss, and more all wrapped up in a double mystery. The mystery wasn't the most astounding, but when coupled with the rest this was a strong piece of fiction (IMO). Would definitely read more by this author.

GypsyKat Sounds really good! 4w
BookDragonNotWorm @GypsyKat First one I've read in a while that had some substance and wasn't just generically good. 4w

I didn‘t realize this was #YA and wondered why I wasn‘t enjoying it until I reread the description about 2 hours into it. Yeah...nope. Not a reflection on book or author. Just not my jam.

IamIamIam Sometimes YA can be satisfying and sometimes it's a harsh reminder that we're not 15 anymore. 😂 7mo
cathysaid @IamIamIam You know, now that you say it, I probably would have really enjoyed it at that age. 7mo

So after reading the first few pages, I honestly was like wth have I gotten myself into with this book?!... in a good way! It‘s a whirlwind rollercoaster trying to figure out who murdered Sophie‘s best friend, while also diving into secrets revealed through flashbacks. I couldn‘t put this book down. It has some dark areas, but life can get dark at times. I would definitely recommend. 📚❤️✨

@TheFunkyBookworm Here's just a few of the YA mystery and thrillers I've enjoyed. Pasadena is California noir, The Naturals is the first in a four-book series that's like Criminal Minds with teens, Allegedly is about Mary who allegedly killed a baby when she was a child, Far From You's main character is a recovering addict trying to solve her best friend's murder, and A Spy in the House is historical mystery with a touch of romance. #yawednesday

TheFunkyBookworm Ohh so many great choices! I think Cali Noir peaks my interest the most! Thank you for participating 💜🎉 1y

The first murder mystery I have read, and I was very engaged, only took me two solid days of reading to complete. Love the characters and their development and finding out who the killer was 🔪

This is a book that resonated with me so deeply, it makes me wish I could give it more than five stars. That I could hand it out to everyone who has even a remote interest. Its amazing story with many elements and quite the emotional punch in the teeth!

My #DiversityDecBingo TBR is all YA. I'm starting to feel like it's one of the only sections in publishing that has the majority of the small percentage of #ownvoices books being published.

I really enjoyed this one. But is it telling of the publishing industry in general that f/f romances in YA rarely either happen or end well?

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.

LOVED THIS. Absolute favorite LGBTQ YA I've read so far this year. This was an emotionally complex and intriguingly suspenseful murder mystery.
