Book Review: Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

Hello everyone! Today I finished reading Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King, which is the same author who wrote The Dust of 100 Dogs. Here and my review and I hope you enjoy:

Plot: Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything.
So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name? Does she even want to?
Edgy and gripping, Please Ignore Vera Dietz is an unforgettable novel: smart, funny, dramatic, and always surprising.

Review: This book was filled with suspense, emotion, drama, lies, love, truth, and no destiny. It showed me that there is a world out there that is cruel, but there are promises and the only way to gain those promises is to wait, and hope them come. Also to follow your heart and head, but never stop listening to either of them. Vera was a powerful character that did some bad things, but in the end she found herself and did the right thing. Before he died, Charlie was a child that didn't do what he was told, smoked, drank, and ate pieces of McDonald's napkins after writing on them. He was a interesting, mysterious character that I loved and hated as much as Vera did. There was side characters like Vera's dad, Jenny, Bill, James, and many more that were amazing to read about because of who they probably didn't mean to, but they did show different ways of life and how to live it in different ways. This book was gripping and I could not put it down, until I finished with tears in my eyes and laughing like there is no tomorrow. Also I will never look at pickles the same way ever again.
