Ashes to Ashes by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian

Ashes to Ashes by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian
Published by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing on September 16, 2014.

Summary: "New Year's Eve ended with a bang and Mary, Kat and Lillia may not be prepared for what is to come.
After Rennie's death, Kat and Lillia try to put the pieces together of what happened to her. They both blame themselves. If Lillia hadn't left with Reeve... If Kat had only stayed with Rennie... Things could have been different. Now they will never be the same.
Only Mary knows the truth about that night. About what she is. She also knows the truth about Lillia and Reeve falling in love, about Reeve being happy when all he deserves is misery, just like the misery he caused her. Now their childish attempts at revenge are a thing of the past and Mary is out for blood. Will she leave anything in her wake or will all that remain be ashes?"  -- From Goodreads

My Thoughts:

Holy crap.  This book series would seriously give me the warm and fuzzies one moment and then make me want to throw the book against the wall.  The characters in the book are so realistic!  I loved how the authors took a realistic look at high school, and created characters that you would see if you walked down the hallway at school.  I liked the ending, and how it gave closure to Mary.  The epilogue was interesting, and I wished that Reeve and Lillia would have gotten back together.  I think they were smart though to realize that not all relationships work out, no matter how much we want them to.

Disclosure: I purchased my own copy.
