Review: Jessica Z.

Jessica Z.
Jessica Z. by Shawn Klomparens

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was strongly recommended to me by a friend or two, and lots of positive Goodreads review.

While I wouldn't say that this is the best book I've read all year, it was an engaging read with interesting, believable characters. What moved it from three stars to four was how the book explored Josh's character after he died. Instead of the pure manipulation and mania you witness during his relationship with Jessica, his actual motives and decency are exposed. Clearly he and Jessica made a terrible couple, but he was a good human being, which Jessica only discovers after his death.
