The Beauty That Remains, by Ashley Woodfolk
While critically acclaimed, I simply couldn't get into this story. The writing is decent and the characters fairly distinct and well developed, but they are not terribly interesting. As for the story, I simply didn't find anything sufficiently novel enough about this book to justify it. The characters grieve in various (and different ways), but Woodfolk doesn't have much new to say about teens and death.
