Until Zoë's former boyfriend Marc shows up with Zoë diary.

At first Echo's not interested, doubting there's anything in there she doesn't already know. But when curiosity prevails, she starts reading, becoming so immersed in her sister's secret world, their lives begin to blur, forcing Echo to uncover the truth behind Zoë's life so that she can start to rebuild her own.

Prepare to laugh your heart out and cry your eyes out in this highly addictive tale as Alyson Noël tackles the complicated relationship between two sisters and shows how the bond can endure long after one of them is gone.

My Review: I spent a lot of my time while reading Saving Zoë trying not to cry. I felt sorry for Echo having to go through what she went thorough and with her parents not being completely there for her also must have been really hard.

Echo’s sister Zoë was murdered her parents blamed Zoë’s boyfriend Mark but he had nothing to do with it other than letting Zoë use his car to go and meet her murderer.

What no one but Mark knows is that Zoë kept a journal which he gives to Echo. At first Echo doesn’t know if she should read it but once she starts she can’t stop and Echo realises that no one really knew the real Zoë.

Echo believes that everyone sees her as Zoë's little sister who won’t be happy again. The more she reads Zoë’s journal the closer to her she feels to the point where she ends up kissing Mark her sister’s boyfriend.

While reading the journal Echo finds out that a guy who is now hanging out with one of her friends is a creep and he lead Zoë down a dark path along with Echo’s friend.

The story was completely addictive and it was hard to put it down, I was reading it while I was cooking and while I should have been doing college work.
