Sunday Synopsis

Famous Last WordsFamous Last Words by Katie Alender
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I almost abandoned this book when I first started it. I put it down for a couple of months after reading the first 3 or 4 chapters. I picked it back up at the urging of one of my students. I was worried about it being too scary because it is about a haunted house. And it was a little eerie.  Hauntings and ghosts usually aren't my cup of tea, but I got past that because the story was good.

Understanding the main character was difficult in the beginning. Her name is Willa, a high school student, and she has just moved in to an infamous Hollywood home with her mother and step-father.  She doesn't make friends easily, but one person she does have a connection with is Wyatt who is obsessed with the Hollywood Killer that is stalking women in Los Angeles.  Meanwhile, Willa thinks her home is haunted.  She sees and hears things that no one else does including a strange person in the mirror where her own reflection should be.

This story is a mixture of murder, mystery, and Hollywood history.  The ending will surprise you!   I figured out the mystery only shortly before it was made obvious. Clever story line, if just a little unrealistic.
