Far From You

Far From You by Tess Sharpe
Published by Disney-Hyperion 4/8/2014


Far From You is a moving, yet horrific story all rolled into one wonderful book. It is a story of unrequited love, addiction, and murder. Sophie and Mina have been best friends since they were seven years old, but now Mina is dead and Sophie wants, no needs, to solve her murder. Tess Sharpe expertly transports the reader into Sophie’s world where she teeters between sorrow and terror. Where she wars between her thoughts and actions – “I don’t want to go there, I have to go there.” Where her parents won’t listen to her truth. Alternating between heart-wrenching and terrifying, Ms Sharpe leaves the reader with hope. And maybe, just maybe Sophie’s story will encourage others who have locked away their love to be true to themselves.
