    One thought on “The Window”

    1. With smart, sharp prose and a dark but relatable undercurrent, this book pulls you through the labyrinth like mystery of a teen girl s life and her tragic end Yet it s also a poignant story of sisterhood twinhood, specifically , young romance, and grief, and employs some drop dead gorgeous imagery a girl flying through the air before crashing to the ground the slick walls of a deep, dark well I particularly enjoyed the little interstitial chapters written from the perspective of Anna, which are [...]

    2. After the death of her twin sister Anna, Jess vows to figure out what happened The premises had my attention regarding the mystery, but the plot was very slow Jess was hard to connect with She made assumptions on a single piece of evidence and stuck with that story, blaming the beloved English teacher and cross country track coach for seducing her twin She joins track and frequently stalks this teacher, trying to see if he will slip up and do something implementing that will connect him to Anna [...]

    3. I read an ARC of this book and absolutely loved it From the first page, I was drawn into this story and had a very hard time putting it down The narrator, Jess, is investigating the death of her twin, which she refuses to believe is as simply explained as everyone else seems to Jess is such a complex and beautifully drawn character, as is the sister she lost Jess makes a series of startling decisions, but the author has written her so well that every move she makes, you stay with her and hope it [...]

    4. I found The Window hard to put down Anyone who has ever felt the connection between sisters will love this book With powerful imagery and realistically flawed characters, the story weaves Jess s point of view with moments of Anna s It s tragic and beautiful and dark.

    5. This excellent story begins with Jess, thinking in gym class, that she is doomed to be out of fashion for her whole life and eager to tell her twin Anna about her realization Only the counselor comes to the door, her parents are in the main office, and her sister Anna has been found dead lying on the ground below her bedroom window.The rest of the story follows Jess as she tries to find out what happened to her sister and what she didn t know about the person she thought she knew best of anyone [...]

    6. I read this quickly, wanting to find out, along with Jess, what really happened to her twin sister Anna, who died from a fall out of a window Jess s reaction to grief was realistic and well portrayed, the resolution was surprising, and I especially appreciated that romance didn t solve all of Jess s problems This was a suspenseful and satisfying read Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing an e galley in exchange for an honest review.

    7. I received a copy of this book from Random House Childrens Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    8. This book was so captivating As I read, I felt just as curious and eager to find out the truth as Jess was Each chapter leaves you wanting information and you feel compelled to keep going Amelia s characters are human and real and at the core of this story is a lovely, complicated relationship between twins The author captured a wide array of emotions that teens experience and did so beautifully I loved this book

    9. The story was intriguing enough Twin sister is found dead under her bedroom window leaving her twin no other choice, but to solve the crime herself I m a big fan of this subject I love a good who dunnit and everything discovered and under covered to get there Unfortunately this particular story didn t give me anything new that I haven t already read before Once I knew the story, I could easily pinpoint all the players and having all that in line, the who is pretty easy to guess, IMO I just wasn [...]

    10. Oh my gosh, I am obsessed with this book I didn t want to ever stop reading it I recently had surgery and I end up being up in the middle of the night because of needing to take medicine and I would end up reading this book and not wanted to sleep because it was so good.The book is about Jess Her twin sister, Anna, was found dead and they think she fell when she was sneaking out her window The book then shows Jess trying to get through life without her twin and also discovering that things aren [...]

    11. I don t normally write reviews, but after reading this, I felt I had to As a YA librarian, I ve read a lot of the books in my section But I can honestly say this is the first one I ve read that really surprised me The plot took so many twists and turns that I truly had no idea how the book would end and I m usually one of those people who can figure out the end of a book before a third of the way in.This is one of the best books I ve read in a long time, and I will definitely be adding it to my [...]

    12. This book was wild For multiple reasons The advance reading copy I had actually started somewhere in the fourth chapter, right in the middle of a sentence had been Anna s partner in bio that fall I don t think this was intentional because of the lack of a front flyleaf the whole title and credits pages Nevertheless, I read the book, and it was good Slightly creepy, and I wouldn t pick it up unless you re going to read the whole thing in one sitting, but it all pulled together Definitely not the [...]

    13. I was expecting this book to be another YA whodunit but as I was reading this book all the theories I had and let me tell you I had many, many theories didn t end up being correctat in itself is a great story for me Amelia Brunskill did an amazing job weaving a gripping tale that kept me guessing until the very end Grab this book if you want to be surprised Thanks to Random House for the ARC

    14. For a first novel, this was really, really good I was rooting for Jess to figure out what really happened to her twin sister I think the pieces to the puzzle were placed nicely throughout the book The bits and pieces of Anna s journal created suspense as you follow Jess figure out who was involved.

    15. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher of this novel for the E Arc copy.The Window has a slow progressive story It had a pace that I felt was to build up toward the end and the finale It missed on some of the marks, but overall wasn t a bad read If you like the dance of a novel then this one is defiantly for you It builds over time.

    16. I think the whole what happened to the twin genre can be hard to pull off in a unique and interesting way, and let me say that Brunskill totally did it I recommend this book and am so happy I had the chance to read it through a giveaway.

    17. I enjoyed this read very much It s everything you want in book complicated relationships and a mystery that will keep you riveted until the end I highly recommend this book

    18. I wasn t sure about this book at the beginning because it got off to a slow, but familiar, start Jess is the quiet one who is left essentially voiceless after the death of her outgoing friend family member and needs to find her own way in the world Having read several titles with that framework, I was unimpressed, especially since Jess didn t grab me as a compelling character and I thought the book was primarily going to be about her grieving process But fairly quickly we began to find out that [...]

    19. trigger warning pedophilia Initially, I d thought if they d been together, that made him a creep, a predator Yet watching him in his house had made it much difficult for me to think of him that way I wondered if it was possible there d been something good between them In a way, I hoped there had been No No Are you effing kidding me right now Honestly, I don t even want to TALK about the book itself Crap like this makes me so frikkin angry This book is an insult to any and all victims of pedophi [...]

    20. How well do you know your sibling And if that sibling is your twin, shouldn t you know her even better than non twin siblings That s popular wisdom, right Well, not so fast apparently Jess doesn t know Anna as well as a twin is supposed to know her twin Of course, that s pretty par for any YA book about twins or even adult books for that matter And how Anna ultimately ended up falling from her bedroom window Not all that surprising, or different Still, despite that predictability, there are some [...]
