Until Beth

Finished Until Beth by Lisa Amowitz.  I received a copy from the publisher for review. (Note: This is the publishing company I work for but this is not one of my books.)

Summary (from Goodreads):

Talented rock guitarist Beth Collins has been barely holding herself together for months, ever since her boyfriend and bandmate became the latest victim in a string of suspicious disappearances. When her brother is injured an accident and she sees something dark billowing around him as he hovers close to death, she’s convinced her sanity is collapsing for good.

Then she’s accepted by a boarding school for the musically gifted. All of her new friends are bursting with talent, but they’re also keeping secrets. Can she trust Vincent, who’s so sweet that his very touch makes her fears melt away? Or Xavier, who’s trying to tell her something but is hiding even more?

And will anyone be safe when her true Talent comes out?”

The first thing you should know is that this is the start of a series. The second thing? Once you are finished with Until Beth, you will be absolutely desperate to read the next book.

Beth is a kickass heroine.  There’s some tragedy in her life and epic levels of weirdness but she refuses to give up.  She is seriously awesome, too.  She’s a kickass friend and always does what she feels she needs to do to keep her friends safe—sometimes even at her own expense.

I spent a lot of the book not knowing what was going on, and also not knowing who to trust.  If you read this—and you should—be aware that nothing’s going to make sense at first.  Even so, this is an insane ride and you’ll never want to get off.

Highly recommended.
