The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin
Addison Stone is a young artist who makes it big--she's the talk of New York City, dating the high society darlings, and her artwork sells for thousands. But, underneath it all, she's suffering from mental illness. The first page begins with a copy of her obituary. Was she murdered? Did she commit suicide? Was her fall from the bridge an accident?
Told in snippets of interviews, the book seems oh so real. The book is a piece of art--photographs of a striking Addison with her friends, copies of emails, and her paintings and drawings. This book is getting some Printz attention, I'm sure, for voice and design. It's unique and I loved it.
