#BookReview of The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone: A Novel by @adelegriffin


The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: Soho Teen
Recommended Age: Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary, Mystery
About the Book: Brilliant young artist. Her mysterious death. Fandom that won't let her go.

From the moment she stepped foot in NYC, Addison Stone’s subversive street art made her someone to watch, and her violent drowning left her fans and critics craving to know more. I conducted interviews with those who knew her best—including close friends, family, teachers, mentors, art dealers, boyfriends, and critics—and retraced the tumultuous path of Addison's life. I hope I can shed new light on what really happened the night of July 28. Fully illustrated.
—Adele Griffin

Do I Recommend this book? Yes!

Notes and Opinions: I really did not want to put this book down until I had reached the end. This book was incredibly engaging. Addison still felt real to me throughout the novel. I can relate to the character which I think it is important in any story. There is a vast cast of characters who tell their version of events in Addison’s life. This book should be read because it's so fascinating! By the end I was convinced that Addison Stone was a real person (she’s not). The story itself is very sad though.
