But when curiosity prevails, she starts reading, becoming so immersed in her sister's secret world, their lives begin to blur, forcing Echo to uncover the truth behind Zoe's life so that she can start to rebuild her own.
Prepare to laugh your heart out and cry your eyes out in this highly addictive tale as Alyson Noel's "Saving Zoe" tackles the complicated relationship between two sisters and shows how the bond can endure long after one of them is gone.
“Alyson Noël finds the perfect balance of heartbreak and humor in this story about sisters, secrets and saying goodbye. I loved every minute of it!”
–Hailey Abbott, author of the New York Times bestselling Summer Boys series
“Even though you know from page one where the story will eventually lead, Saving Zoë pulls off the amazing trick of keeping you guessing. You have to follow along with Echo, the good sister chasing the tail of the “bad” one through the streets of darkest suburbia. Prepare to read this in one long sitting. Think Chinatown. Think "Where are you going, where have you been?" Think Veronica Mars.”
–Maureen Johnson, author of Devilish
“Noel writes a smart and compelling story about life, love and loss that you won't be able to put down. Saving Zoe is a must-read.”
–Cara Lockwood, author of Wuthering High
