Losing Faith - Denise Jaden

Plot Summary 
A terrible secret. A terrible fate.
When Brie's sister, Faith, dies suddenly, Brie's world falls apart. As she goes through the bizarre and devastating process of mourning the sister she never understood and barely even liked, everything in her life seems to spiral farther and farther off course. Her parents are a mess, her friends don’t know how to treat her, and her perfect boyfriend suddenly seems anything but.
As Brie settles into her new normal, she encounters more questions than closure: Certain facts about the way Faith died just don't line up. Brie soon uncovers a dark and twisted secret about Faith’s final night...a secret that puts her own life in danger.

My Review  
Hmmm I'm not sure what to write about this book. It was very different from what I normally read. The book revolved around religion a lot and even though Brie, the main character, was not religious herself the majority of the other characters were, especially her sister Faith. 

I also think the book was a bit slow in the beginning. After losing her sister Brie is kind of just there. She isn't really living, she is confused and broken. I suppose this is how someone would actually feel but I think the author dragged out these feelings a bit long and readers might lose interest. However I was determined to finish the book and about halfway through the plot became much more interesting and tense that I couldn't put the book down. 

So overall I think this was an ok book to read and if you can persevere I think you will enjoy the last half a lot. 

Score: 5.5 out of 10
