Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.
This is not her story.
Unless you count the part where I killed her.
Sixteen-year-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens, having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison's condition is proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can't explain what happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori – the next she disintegrated. Into nothing. But that's impossible. Right?
Ultraviolet was a book that intrigued me from the beginning. I love the way the author has combined some real life mystical elements and then something from the other end of the scale.
I liked the main character Alison and reading her thoughts was very enlightening, for a reason that'll come up while reading the book.
The reason why I ended up rating Ultraviolet three stars instead of the four I would have given based on the first hundred and fifty pages of the book are the last fifty pages. Somehow, from my perspective, the story line just jumped this huge distance and left me gaping and laughing to myself, thinking "is this for real?"
Much more cannot be said without giving the surprise away...
