The title struck me first. DEATH OF A KLEPTOMANIAC? What an eye-catcher! I like the way there's all this stuff on the bed that the girl likely stole, too. It's interesting to see the way the wallpaper is so bubble-gum pink and half the title is using super-curly script, creating a girly-girl vibe, which fits with the "finally popular girl" plot point.
I have to wonder how the main character, Molly, is going to die. Is it a theft gone wrong? Is it justice? The way the summary mentions her state of limbo makes me wonder if this book will read like IF I STAY by Gayle Forman and BEFORE I FALL by Lauren Oliver, so I'm interested in reading it when the time comes!
What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
