Blog Tour: Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia

Frenchie Garcia can’t come to grips with the death of Andy Cooper. Her friends didn’t
know she had a crush him. And they don’t know she was the last person with him
before he committed suicide. But Frenchie’s biggest concern is how she blindly helped
him die that night.

Frenchie’s already insane obsession with death and Emily Dickinson won’t help her
understand the role she played during Andy’s “one night of adventure.” But when she
meets Colin, she may have found the perfect opportunity to recreate that night. While
exploring the emotional depth of loss and transition to adulthood, Sanchez’s sharp humor and clever observations bring forth a richly developed voice.


Jenny Torres Sanchez lives in Florida with her husband and children where she
currently writes full time. Before her debut novel The Downside of Being Charlie she
taught high school for several years, where she credits her eclectic students for
inspiring her to write young adult novels.


My Thoughts:
This short book packs a big punch! Frenchie is a character you won't soon forget. Her life was basically changed in one short, but immensely important night. Jenny Torres Sanchez has written a book that deals in a very unique way with life's tough subjects; death, growing up, and all the "what ifs?"

I loved that Frenchie was someone that took things to heart the way she does. Her life and her personality reminded me of so many people I know, and even a little bit about myself. (I think this is proof of Mrs. Sanchez's writing skills..since I could relate so well to Frenchie, even though I've never been through anything like she has..)

I feel like this review isn't doing the right amount of justice that this book deserves! It's hard to put into words the way this story touched me. I do think this book was wonderfully written, the characters are simply some of the best I've read in a while, and Frenchie..well she is just a great character with an amazing story that will linger with me for a long time.

  1. The book cover looks spectacular! I'm following your blog and I was wondering if you could do this tag that I created called Blogging Things I Suck At. You can find out all the details and more at the post on my blog here. I really hope you can do it.
