If your kids are thinking summer reading, I wanted to share a book that she should add to their reading list -- GIRL, UNFRAMED, from National Book Award finalist and Printz Honor Book Winner Deb Caletti.  This new gripping thriller that is full of mystery, and a definite page turner will be available on June 23rd from Simon & Schuster.  Just in time for summer reading GIRL, UNFRAMED, will be a standout with your tween/teens summer reading .  I started reading this book the day before yesterday, and found myself not being able to stop.  I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen next.  This murder mystery will have you playing detective as you read and study the list of evidence shared at the start of each chapter.  As I went over this information, I felt like I was being thrown into the action and working against the clock to solve this who done it murder mystery.  Suspenseful right up until the end, GIRL, UNFRAMED is a page turning new summer release that your thriller/suspense teens will eat up.  Like me, they will start reading it and not want to put the book down.  I ended up finishing the book in the wee hours of the morning and found myself smiling as I read the final words, as I knew I went up a gripping journey in this well-written thriller from Deb Caletti.  Don't worry, I will not give away any spoilers or ruin the ending for you.  All I will say is that GIRL, UNFRAMED is a must read, and one book you will be talking about and passing the book around for family and friends to read, so that you can discuss it more, all through the summer months.

About the Book:

"A teen girl’s summer with her mother turns sinister in GIRL, UNFRAMED a dripping thriller on the dangers of unwanted attention perfect for fans of Courtney Summers’s Sadie. Ripped from the headlines, this novel is loosely inspired by the famous Lana Turner's boyfriend’s murder mystery as Caletti expertly explores gender dynamics and sexuality through Sydney Reilly, a teen visiting her mother over the summer in San Francisco. From the very start, each compulsively readable chapter opens with a list of evidence from a trial that involves Sydney and her family, but it’s a mystery what that crime will be. This slow-burn suspense keeps readers turning pages to see where the summer mystery will end."
