Synopsis: Tell me a secret, and I'll tell you one… In the five years since her bad-girl sister Xanda’s death, Miranda Mathison has wondered about the secret her sister took to the grave, and what really happened the night she died. Now, just as Miranda is on the cusp of her dreams—a best friend to unlock her sister’s world, a ticket to art school, and a boyfriend to fly her away from it all—Miranda has a secret all her own. Then two lines on a pregnancy test confirm her worst fears. Stripped of her former life, Miranda must make a choice with tremendous consequences and finally face her sister’s demons and her own.
God I just loved this. It had a lot more skeletons behind closed doors then I thought it would. But really, thats what made this book incredible. I honestly, do not feel that I can put this book into physical words. It really put a great perspective on how one huge thing can affect someones whole life. Most books dont like to delve into the mind of someone who has suffered loss, and is suffering change at the same time. They usually choose one or the other. So this, was a huge thing to me. Tell Me A Secret was so much more real then most books about teen pregnancy. It had the family tension, it had the isolation, it had every little detail that we may see someone or we may experience during our teenage years. This book was just amazingly written and really touched my heart. I absolutely adored it.
