I know that this has been out a few years and I just never picked it up to read and now I wished I had done so earlier. Its a really sweet story about Echo, the younger sister to Zoe who was brutally murdered in their hometown a year earlier when the story starts. Echo is just starting high school, the same one that Zoe attended and is dealing with the gossip and stares she gets, as well as the boys she ran around with. When one boy, Marc, starts talking to her and giving her a cobalt blue book, she starts to really change. The book was Zoe's diary. The day she went missing and was killed she had given it to Marc to hold onto, and a year later he gives it to Echo. Once Echo starts to read her sisters thoughts she learns a whole new side to her dear sister. She learns that Marc was not the terrible person her parents made her think, he had nothing to do with her death, it was someone else. But the biggest thing she learned was the crowd of people she was hanging out with were really messed up and she needed to stay away from them at all costs.
The ending is sweet, and very tear jerking. But the story is one that any teenage girl will love and I highly recommend it.

I've been a fan of Alyson Noel since I first started reading, about two and a half years ago. Saving Zoe is definitely not like her other books, with the topic of dealing with a sister's death, but I found that it wasn't written much differently either. I didn't connect with any of the characters, but I didn't not connect with them either, if that makes any since; and some parts of this story were written kind of poorly. It had about as much depth as her novel Kiss and Blog, which is a completely different topic. I think it may have something to do with the short time period between the release dates of the two books, about four months. Overall, this story is nothing special: not amazing but not terrible. Would I recommend this book? I might suggest it to people looking for boyfriend drama and friend drama, but not to anyone looking for a deep, emotional book.

    A major Let down

    I read the back of this book and thought it was going to be great. But instead I found it was just depressing with the characters not well developed. It was boaring. I did like the ending however. I would not read it again.
