Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

Vera’s spent her whole life secretly in love with her best friend, Charlie Kahn. And over the years she’s kept a lot of his secrets. Even after he betrayed her. Even after he ruined everything. So when Charlie dies in dark circumstances, Vera knows a lot more than anyone—the kids at school, his family, even the police. But will she emerge to clear his name? Does she even want to?

And A.S. King does it again! I really enjoyed reading King’s previous book Dust of 100 Dogs and I was interested in how she was going to present Please Ignore Vera Dietz since the premise of the novels are both so different. Vera is such a unique character, she just amazes me.
I love how A.S. King took so many different forms of writing a story and combined them. Through flow charts and different points of view, King told this story beautifully.
This book is unexplainable. It’s crazy. It’s amazing. I love it. But, it is so darn unexplainable. The emotional journey that Vera takes is fun and heart-wrenching to read about. With every book she writes, A.S. King gets even better. I highly recommend this novel, it was unforgettable.

FTC- Borrowed.
