The Museum of Us by Tara Wilson Redd

It’s time for me to take a break from mystery/suspense/thriller novels for a moment (not that it was a bad thing at all!). I want to thank Netgalley and Random House Children for this book in return for my honest review.

Sadie and George were out for a drive one evening when Sadie accidentally hit a tree and landed herself in the hospital. She’s broken her leg, but has to stay in the hospital for a while. Reason being? There is something fishy about George. They’re trying to figure out how the car accident happened and who/where George really is. Sadie has an amazing support system around her – a rockstar boyfriend named Henry, a best friend named Lucie who loves Harry Potter just the same as Sadie, and parents who are by her side through it all. If that’s all true, why does Sadie still care about George so much? What’s his story?

I adored this book sooo much. I felt like it was such a unique storyline despite the popularity of mental illness young adult books. I felt for Sadie. She has so much that she needs to work through in her mind, and she was so afraid to give it all up.  I could not put this down… I needed to know what was going to happen to George! Most people have seemed to complain about the daydreaming aspects of the novel, but I adored them (probably because you can find me daydreaming quite often as well 😛 ). If you’re in the mood for an emotional read that is intricately woven together, this one is for you.

5/5 Stars
