Two-time National Book Award finalist Adele Griffin offers an ingenious fictional take on the "oral history" celebrity bio that defined a bestselling genre: Edie, American Girl by Jean Stein and George Plimpton. In presenting herself as interviewer and curator of memories, Adele paints the portrait of a tragic young celebrity who allegedly committed suicide—presented in a series of brief first-person recollections—that ultimately results in the solving of a murder. 

Adele's words: "From the moment she burst into the downtown art scene, seventeen-year-old Addison Stone was someone to watch. Her trademark subversive street art and her violent drowning left her fans and critics craving to know more about this brilliant wild-child who shone so bright and was gone too soon. By means of more than one hundred interviews with those who knew her best—including close friends, family, teachers, mentors, art dealers, boyfriends, and critics—I have retraced the tumultuous path of Addison's life, with research that sheds new evidence on what really happened the night of July 28, 2013. With photo inserts and previously unpublished supplemental material."

Why I'm Waiting
  • The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone sounds different from anything I've read in both style and content. 
  • I'm becoming a fan of murder mysteries - I don't need sweet romances all the time 


  1. Nice pick! I hadn't heard of this one before but you're right, it definitely sounds different and, hopefully, unique! Will look out for a copy when it's published so thanks for sharing!

  2. Ohh, the cover hurts my eyes a little, haha. But it sounds really good! Plus, I love murder mysteries. Always my favourite time of read. :)
