Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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?

Edgy and gripping, Please Ignore Vera Dietz is an unforgettable novel: smart, funny, dramatic, and always surprising.

From the Hardcover edition.

I love the characters, I love the way the story is told. At first I thought the sections where the dead kid, the pagoda and Vera's dad talk wouldn't work, but they did and added to the awesome writing style in the book. The characters are so real, this could happen. The emotions are palpable. This is a book that will stick with me quite awhile.
This is me using love in a sentences - over and over again.
