The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone

Addison Stone's sudden death left nothing but questions; everyone felt they knew her best, but once she died it seemed to be so much smoke and mirrors. 

So I decided to find out: who was Addison, really? What were we to her? THE UNFINISHED LIFE OF ADDISON STONE tells her inner circle's story. 

Adele Griffin is a two-time National Book Award finalist and the highly acclaimed author of numerous books for young adult and middle grade readers. Her works include Sons of Liberty and Where I Want to Be, and most recently, Loud Awake and Lost. Adele lives with her husband, Erich; their two young children; and their dog, Edith, in Brooklyn, New York.

This novel was BRILLIANT! The book was so well done with the pictures and the art. The story felt real and really unique. This is the first like this that I have ever heard of. I am not even sure what to call it, but it's a very intriguing concept and book. Adele Griffin is super talented at weaving fiction with just a hint of reality to make you totally forget that this was not a real life person.

Addison was a rebel and a talented one at that. She was a spark that was about to erupt into a full on firestorm. Her life was cut tragically short and definitely left a lot of questions and sadness behind. The wonderful thing about this book was the fact that the way Ms. Griffin wrote the story, you connect to Addison..even if it's indirectly and second hand, you feel the loss. This book will stay with me for quite a while.
