When I first saw this book, I could not get enough of the cover!!!! As many of you know, I am a sucker for covers!!! And this one made me think about this book for weeks before I was able to get my hands on it. A good friend of mine wanted to borrow a couple books and in exchange I was able to borrow this book. And it was everything that I thought it would be. Now I am not going to lie, at first I didn’t know what was going on. I thought that the first couple chapters were very confusing. So I took a little time away from the book and then came back and finished it. The book was more then I thought it would ever be. The book was beyond my expectations. I really think that everyone should read this book because it tells a story that is not normally told. A story that makes you want more, a story that makes you feel the sorrow that the characters are feeling. The book was an easy read once I got past the part of the book that was very confusing. The story just came naturally. It made you want more. It made you want to make sure that justice was going to happen for poor Amelia Anne. If you want a book that keeps you guessing, is sad, and amazing all wrapped up into one this book is definitely for you. You will not be sorry for reading this book!!!!

I, like other reviewers, had a little trouble keeping up with the switching perspectives in the novel. But, I really did end up liking the book quite a bit. It took a little while to understand what was going on at the start, but te confusion was momentary and went away quickly enough. I'll definitely order it for my library. I have a couple patrons that I know would really like it.

GoodReads Synopsis: Becca has always longed to break free from her small, backwater hometown. But the discovery of an unidentified dead girl on the side of a dirt road sends the town--and Becca--into a tailspin. Unable to make sense of the violence of the outside world creeping into her backyard, Becca finds herself retreating inward, paralyzed from moving forward for the first time in her life.Short chapters detailing the last days of Amelia Anne Richardson's life are intercut with Becca's own summer as the parallel stories of two young women struggling with self-identity and relationships on the edge twist the reader closer and closer to the truth about Amelia's death.My Thoughts: I loved the author¿s voice and writing style¿but not so much the story. While the premise was interesting¿the story was a bit gruesome for me. Unpleasant images stuck with me long after I finished the book.I also did not care for Becca or James¿I felt no kinship or ever really cared what happened to them. The part of the story that appealed to me the most and wanted to read more of was the story of Amelia Ann, and it was the drive to read her story that kept me reading. Sorry, just not my kind of book¿and according to GoodReads, I appear to be in the minority.

I am kind of in love with Kat Rosenfield. What a fantastic writer! I truly did enjoy this book. It's different from anything I've read recently, which is refreshing! Reading this story was like an emotional roller coaster. You are reading about some pretty gruesome scenes, but Rosenfield writes it heartbreakingly, and you find yourself living in this small town, feeling what the characters are feeling. I loved Amelia's story much more than Becca's, but James is largely to blame for that. He just reminded me of every jerk I, or close friends, have dated. In closing, if you're looking for something that feels a bit real in a genre crowded with the supernatural 'Amelia Anne' is it. Enjoy!

Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone is about Becca who's life seems to take turn for the worse the summer before she leaves for college. The chapters are interrupted by Amelia's story and the events leading up to her death. The chapters are written in first person and narrated by Becca while Amelia's part is written in third person.I was very intrigued by the whole murder mystery, but that was about it. I enjoyed Amelia's story, but Becca's story was so boring to me. I honestly didn't care about what was going on with Becca, but I read it anyways to see if anything exciting would happen in her life besides her feeling sad or nausea's or unsure all the time. I got very confused quite a bit. The writing jumps around from past to present, like Becca would be having a conversation with her boyfriend, James, and he would mention something that I wouldn't understand, and then Becca would jump back and start explaining something that happened in the past, to explain what James was talking about, but I wouldn't be able to tell if she was really telling us about the past or if it was something happening the next day until I read a couple pages. It all made sense in the end, but it was confusing while I was reading it, and sometimes the whole scene wouldn't even contribute to the overall story. The scene might have been interesting, but it didn't fit into the story, to me. I thought to myself "what was the point of even telling us that?".Becca's chapters are also very descriptive. Now, sometimes I can enjoy a book that is very descriptive, but that is very far and few between, so needless to say, I didn't like how it was very heavy on the description. While some might find the writing pretty, I found it boring. I was already impatient with the writing, with the jumping from past to present, so I wasn't very willing to read about how the grass moved in the wind.Regardless, I did really enjoy Amelia's story. I probably liked it because I knew that her story wasn't going to end well, and to read about the events that lead to her death was almost fascinating because I was trying to figure out who killed her the whole time. The fact that her story was written in third person also helped me get into the story more because it wasn't so descriptive like Becca's, so her story moved at a faster pace and was easier for me to read.I felt more invested in Amelia's story than I did for Becca's. For some reason, Becca becomes depressed for some reason that wasn't very clear to me. One minute she was fine, and then the next she was upset. There were also a few things that were touched on, but not fully explained, like Becca would mention the she hadn't seen James for weeks, but it wasn't very clear to me until she actually mentioned it, as much as I knew, she talked to James just yesterday. So then it made me wonder why she was clinging onto her and James relationship when they were barely talking anyways?So, overall I enjoyed Amelia's part of the story, but I couldn't get myself to really care for Becca's.

Hmmm after reading this I'm not really sure what to think of it. I mean, the cover is gorgeous, so that's why I was really excited to win this from the LIbrarything early reviewers. Reading the summary, I was even more intrigued by the murder, mystery, and relationships (aka romance, my favorite). So when I finally got this book, I knew I had to start it right away.My favorite part about this book was definitely the writing style. Kat Rosenfield is an amazing writer and her descriptions and overall organization of the book were amazing. The story switched between Amelia the day before her death and Rebecca after they found Amelia's body. The story then progresses moving closer to Amelia dying and closer to Rebecca figuring out who did it. Along the way, both girls learn more about themselves and what they really want out of their lives. Too bad we all know Amelia dies that night. But the reader becomes really connected to both girls and wants the best for them.What I'm really not sure about, though, is if I like how the story ended. I know the whole book was about Rebecca and Amelia and figuring out how Amelia died, but at some parts, I was like "what's the point of this?" I'm not sure why, but the story was kind of in and out for me during the middle parts. And how things turned out, I kind of wish it was more dramatic and shocking. For finally uncovering a murderer, there could have been way more shock and suspense. There was some by how the author wrote it out, switching from each girl at very vital moments, but the actual storyline just needed more oomph.I'm not saying this was a bad book. In fact, it was really quite good and definitely unlike anything I've ever read before. There were just a few things that didn't quite let it reach five star potential. Despite that, I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a break from the same old standard books and try something different for a change. With this one, you won't be able to put it down until you know every last detail of Amelia's death, which goes until the very last page. So read this book if you're in the mood for a different and definitely interesting book.

Becca is the class salutatorian. Smart, hard working and desperate to escape small town life. She has just graduated and is looking forward to spending that one last summer with her boyfriend, James, before heading off for college. She has big dreams and knows exactly what she wants out of life. She has lived in this small town her entire life and has always dreamed about leaving. Only Becca never stopped to think about the dangers of the outside world. Crimes like murder just don't happen in her town and when a badly beaten body turns up, she struggles to make sense of it. She no longer feels safe and that is putting everything she has ever worked for in jeopardy.Amelia Anne is in college and also very bright. She studies so hard that she barely takes time out for personal enjoyment. But on a whim, Amelia Anne takes over for a friend in a play and realizes what she has been missing all along: acting. She loves it and is surprisingly great at it too. But Amelia Anne needs to make a decision, and the one she makes is going to lead not only herself, but Becca, a girl she has never met, into an unimaginable downward spiral.I came across this book for the first time many months ago and it immediately grabbed my attention. The cover is stunning and possibly one of my all-time favorites. It's simple, yet beautiful. Once I read the synopsis, I was hooked. Something about this story called to me and I felt a deep need to get my hands on it. I was ecstatic to learn that I was lucky enough to snag an arc from LibraryThing. Sadly though, the book sat quietly on my shelf for a month or two before I was finally able to pick it up.When I did finally sit down with Amelia Anne, I didn't want to get back up. This incredible story of two girls trying to decide on their futures was gripping and intense. Told mostly from Becca's point of view, small chapters about Amelia Anne's last days intertwine, leading us to the breaking point for both girls. The two stories are written so beautifully and just flow right into each other. The author did such a fantastic job setting the scene of this small town and I felt like I knew all of the characters. And in a way, I do. I have lived in the same small town my entire life (31 years!) and it works the same as Becca's. Everyone knows everyone and some things you learn along the way and you are never really sure who taught you or where you learned it from. This plays a big role in the plot and I think this really helped me connect with Becca. Her struggle is incredibly emotional. She is starting to lose herself and she doesn't know how to stop it. I felt for her and wanted desperately for her to snap out of her depression and start living again.When it came to Amelia Anne, it was just like watching a car accident. You know from just reading the title that this poor girl is going to die, but you can't help yourself from getting attached to her. I knew it was coming but I was still immersed in her life, maybe even more so because of that. I wanted to know what happened to her right away, but the author toys with you, giving you only so much at once. Her pacing was brilliant and she knew exactly where to switch the stories in and out. Kat Rosenfield has found a forever fan in me!If that isn't enough to convince you to rush out and buy this book RIGHT NOW, perhaps I should tell you a little bit more about James. James is gorgeous (of course!) and he loves Becca deeply, but he is also struggling with his own demons. After dealing with a deep loss, he has taken up chain smoking and his life seems to be at a stand still. Even though he is kind of an ass, I couldn't help but feel for him after reading his history. Ok, I swooned a little too. I couldn't help myself, I love snarky guys!Trust me when I say that this book is not one to miss. It is an impassioned coming of age story and a compelling mystery, a combination that makes it the perfect summer read!

This book begins with a pretty steamy sex scene. At first it seems completely unrelated to the book and it took me off guard a bit, but by the end of the chapter I realized that everything that took place in the bed of that old pickup truck was in perfect parallel with what was about to take place.Becca¿s life changes the night of her high school graduation. After a hot and heavy session with her boyfriend, James, in the back of his truck, he breaks up with her. Even though she knew things between her and James would probably end when she went off to college, she wasn¿t expecting it. She thought they still had a few months left, and it throws her off course. She knows once she leaves her small town, she¿ll never come back. She wants bigger and better things, none of which exist in her hometown. Or, at least, she thought she did.Amelia Anne had dreams of her own. She¿d just graduated college and was looking forward to a promising future, but someone had different plans for her.As the summer months pass her by, Becca finds herself wrapped up in the mystery of the unknown girl found dead by the side of the road in her sleepy town. Who killed her? What¿s her name? What was she like? Could it happen to her?Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone is both an honest, gritty look at small-town life and a decent mystery. The piece is very character-driven and I totally connected with Becca. I, too, grew up in a very small town and I knew exactly what she was going through ¿ the need to go away and never come back, but also the paralyzing fear of what might lay waiting for you outside the protection of your small quiet town. The book is beautifully written, and flows nicely. I felt the plot was very well-constructed. It alternates between Becca¿s POV, third-person accounts of the small town, and short interspersed chapters chronicling Amelia Anne¿s last days. Sometimes this can be a recipe for disaster with all that jumping around, but I never felt the pacing stumbled at all. I was hypnotized by the writing and completely captivated by the story. I really enjoyed this one.If you are a fan of Kirsten Hubbard¿s ¿Like Mandarin¿, and if you like your contemporary gritty and real, then this one is for you. There is some sex and drinking, so it is probably better suited for older teens.

I wasn¿t sure what to expect when I started reading Amelia Anne Is Dead and Gone, but I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised with what I read. For some reason I thought there was a paranormal element to this book. I have no idea why that ever entered my mind¿the synopsis gives no hint of anything paranormal related. I guess I¿ve been so overwhelmed with all things supernatural lately, that I just assumed I was reading another book in the genre. Shame on me. In case you share my own folly, know that this is not a paranormal book. It¿s a murder mystery mixed with a coming of age story. I thought the author¿s ability to mix two stories (from two different points of view) was brilliant. She did an amazing job making the story lines flow smoothly without seeming choppy. I was engrossed with Becca¿s story from the first chapter. Her piece of crap boyfriend made my blood boil. (Read that first chapter and you¿ll know what I¿m talking about.) I spent most of the book waiting for Becca to realize how crappy her boyfriend was. I¿m not sure if that¿s how I was supposed to feel or not, but he definitely struck a nerve with me. Of course, he did have a few redeeming qualities. I couldn¿t help but feel a tug at my heart when he described his mom¿s death from cancer. His compassion for other people¿s suffering becomes clear in the end (even if he is a slug to his girlfriend). Mixed within the pages of Becca¿s story is Amelia¿s own tragic tale. When she finally realizes what she wants to be, it¿s too much for those around her. The effects are tragic. In a way, the book is the coming of age story for two girls (un-coming of age story for the one that dies?). Both girls, Becca and Amelia, struggle with figuring out where they belong in the world and how the people they love fit into the puzzle. Both girls deal with horrendous heartache and life changing events... except one of them never gets the chance to grow from the experience. Enough about the characters and the plot. Let¿s talk about what really made this book special: the author¿s writing. Her descriptions! Sigh. She has an eye for detail, that¿s for sure. Her writing had a poetic element to it that made me think of prose at times. There were parts that were simply beautiful. It¿s hard to believe that this was the author¿s debut book. She is certainly talented, and I¿m excited to see what else she will write in the future.

AMELIA ANNE IS DEAD AND GONE was a thrilling novel, that, while slow at times, gave me chills and kept me on edge until the very end. Kat Rosenfield is a very talented writer who has a way with spinning words into gold. The descriptions she gave in the novel were both well-executed and beautifully told. Now, I very rarely bring up writing in my reviews (I'd much rather focus on reviewing the story) but I feel it should be addressed that the transitions between jumping from present to past first person, to a new third-person perspective was a little confusing and derailing at first. It did take some time to adjust to. But, in the end, it was needed to build on the story, and for that I applaud the author, because never have I encountered in the books I've read so far, such a unique and interesting way of telling a story. The characters, while they don't make my top favorite list, are sure to be better liked by others. I couldn't personally identify, nor connect to Becca or her attraction to such a boyfriend she had, and I think that is why it took me a while to finish reading. I like characters to be fresh and exciting, dramatic, over the top, and sarcastic¿not sullen, or sulky, which fits the tone of the novel well, but in the end makes for a difficult to like main character (at least in my opinion) that detracts from the fascinating story that is AMELIA ANNE IS DEAD AND GONE.In the end, I liked AMELIA ANNE IS DEAD AND GONE, and I can tell it will be a hit with some when it debuts in July. As I've said above, Kat Rosenfield is a talented writer, and I can't wait to see what she has in store next. I would like to thank the publisher, and LibraryThing for making it possible to review an advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

The setting of Amelia Anne is one unlike anything I've ever read before. The town is desperate, quiet, and inclusive. People either belong or they're the summerers, outsiders. Not many fit in.Unlike most novels where love blossoms throughout the novel, our protagonist Becca is suckerpunched one night after lovemaking with her longtime boyfriend James. Her life literally unravels within seconds, and unbeknownst to her at the time a girl, an outsider, much like herself lays dying a mere mile away. The mystery of the girl and the circumstances surrounding her death weigh heavy on the towners, and twists like a mangled dying tree into the subconsciouses of all those begin to suspect their most friendliest of neighbors. This book is not for the faint of hearted. It is very heavy and the subject matter is for those on the higher side of teenage years and adults. The book alternates between the point of view of Becca and the months surrounding Amelia's death and Amelia herself in her last days. I ended up enjoying Amelia's story more than Becca's, but there is no story without the other. Without the other, it could be seen as a sensless tragedy that would eventually be forgotten, as time undeniably heals wounds. Yet together, the parallels of these two incredibly similar girls' lives are alarming and thought provoking. Becca's chapters begin a bit wordy with heavy imagery and tend to repeat themselves, however the novel as a whole is richly beautiful, if not dark and twisted.

Kat Ronsenfield is a beautiful writer. There was an abundance of figurative language and well placed vocabulary, which helped to shape the mood of Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone. Athough this book is YA, it is definitely for older teens. I found the abundance of sex and foul language to be too much for the 14 year-old crowd. With that being said, I really enjoyed reading Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone. Two couples' lives are written in parallel, until one day they collide with a violence so mysterious, that I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to find out who the guilty party was.
HollyRae on LibraryThing 29 days ago
This book was quite a read. I really enjoyed it. It was interesting going into the lives of 2 different girls. Its was nicely set up and the pace was really good. I really enjoyed the characters so overall I would give this a 4/5 and definitely recommend this read. The ending was quite a surprise! : )

Becca is just getting ready to leave her small town behind for good when the dead girl is found. Suddenly Becca's plan to go to college and never look back seems trivial at best. It seems like the peak of hubris to think Becca can get away when the dead girl could not. Paralyzed by the shock of this sudden violence, Becca isn't sure what to believe when her future--even the future in general--seems impossible to fathom in Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone (2012)by Kat Rosenfield. Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone is Rosenfield's first novel. Becca's first-person narrative is intercut with short chapters outlining the moments that lead to the unidentified dead girl's--Amelia Anne's--murder. Rosenfield's writing is lush and highly literary with vivid, often unsettling, descriptions of Becca's surroundings and the scenes that lead to Amelia Anne's murder. The mystery aspect is handled well here. Although it was possible to guess the ending early on, the pieces of the puzzle still twisted in a direction that was difficult to anticipate. Although the plot meanders with Becca's doubts and fears, the story is generally solid. The chapters about Amelia are particularly well-done as they illustrate Amelia's growth as she comes into her own before her life is cut tragically short. Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone is a frank and unflinching story. Both Becca and Amelia do not shy away from talking about sex or other topics in their narratives. That said, it would have been nice to have a little more context when Amelia talks to her boyfriend about rougher behavior (Specifically she says to him: "Haven't you ever thought about grabbing me from behind and throwing me against the wall? Just taking what you wanted?"). After the topic is initially raised there is not, unfortunately, any talk of consent and instead the chapter ends abruptly with no further discussion. Unfortunately there isn't much sense of character here. The only person readers really know is Amelia while Becca feels more like a convenient frame for a mystery that wouldn't flesh out into a full novel. Becca rarely comes across as truly real and Amelia's chapters stretch the limits of an omniscient narrator when combined with the first person structure of the rest of the novel. The secondary characters are painted with sharp vignettes that remain closer to caricature than actual characterization. The narrative voice never quite works with many different tones competing in one slim book. In addition to Becca's first-person musings there are also third-person chapters about Amelia. In addition, Becca's narrative often goes off on tangents about the hive mind of small towns and the "we" mentality that often develops as a result. These "we" passages feel lofty. While this was an interesting story about cause and effect and the lingering impact of consequences it still feels more like a literary exercise than a mystery novel. Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone is, however, undoubtedly well-written and demonstrates that Rosenfield is an author to watch.

My Secret Reader for the month of October picked this book out for me, and I was a little bit bummed at first. I had gotten the book years ago when Borders was shutting down after a recommendation from a friend. Back then I was hardly even looking at YA books and had been reading a fair amount of adult literature. This was also prior to my discovery of Goodreads and the way all the pretty covers can make me want books. Anyway, I was a little bummed because I was hoping I could knock off some older YA books I haven't read yet, but I was delighted to read this book. Girl in Translation was the best way to break up the monotony that YA can bring. I didn't have to worry about the cute guy being part stalker part hunk, or even entertain the idea of instalove. This book was everything that I miss about adult reading. It was evenly paced and beautifully written and while there was no big plot line where some big bad is lurking in the corner, it was a simple and heartbreaking tale about a girl who came to America with big dreams, and while it got hard at times, she never gave up. I really adored Kimberly and how witty she was. All the Chinese insults were fresh and interesting and while you couldn't always get what they meant right away, an explanation wasn't too far behind. I also loved that while the characters were speaking in Chinese, the text was in English never leaving me to puzzle out what was being said or having to wait for the author to provide a halfhearted explaination. I felt that each of the characters were wonderfully written and characterized. They were all their own unique person and not carbon copies of each other. While they were frustrating or down right awful, it was great to have people be so different. I felt that all the descriptions of all the characters were wonderful, I could vividly see many of them in my mind. I really enjoyed this book and I'm glad that my Secret Reader picked it for me!

This book is really written beautifully... but I am the type of person that prefers character development instead of lovely descriptions of ponds or fields or gravel roads. Becca felt very flat to me and her internal conflicts unbelievable. I don't even recall getting a full description of her. I really wanted to like her, but I felt bored. In a lot of ways this novel is the story about a small town and what's it like to escape, major emphasis on the small town. Also, I felt like the parallels between Becca and Amelia could've been better. Good for a quick read. Heavy on descriptions. Enjoyed it overall but could've been better.

I love reading and I really do and I try to read a whole lot of books all different kinds. But this book I read the sample on the my nook and I like what i was reading so far. But then once I revived the book in the mail and started reading it I became really disappointed! The story was going up and down not really making sense it seemed like three different stories all in one and the words didn't make sense and it was just really boring. If I would I really wouldn't waste my money because the way the story ends is like why did I even read this book.

Beautiful and mysterious and, uh, stuff—like a unicorn. Yeah. But seriously, this was an amazing book.
