‘You’ll Be the Death of Me’, written Karen M. McManus, is about three kids, Ivy, Cal, and Mateo, who skip a day of school. Little did they know someone would get murdered… You should read this book because it has a great deal of suspense and McManus describes Mateo really attractively. Each chapter is written from a different character’s perspective where you have to put together the pieces.
McManus creates heaps of cliff-hangers by switching the perspective right at the most intense moment, luring you in to keep reading more and more chapters. Mateo, the buff but mysterious guy, is so respectful despite the adversities he faces. Throughout the story you get to experience the romantic tension between him and Ivy. It so frustratingly amazing that you genuinely can’t stop reading.
There is so much in this book that I can’t even fit in to this review. Everything from the romantic tension to the unresolved ending to each chapter makes this book impossible to put down. I would rate this book a 5 of out 5 stars.
