Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield

Genre: YA Mystery

Publisher: Dutton (Penguin)

Release Date: 2012

Goodreads Synopsis:

An arresting un-coming-of-age story, from a breathtaking talent

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.


“Even then, I didn’t expect to. Even now, when I think back on that night, I come away knowing that it was pure chance: a gift from the universe, or maybe a test.” (Hardback, pg. 120)
