Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia by Jenny Torres Sanchez Blog Tour

* A special “Thank You” to Jenny for making this tour possible.

Jenny Torres Sanchez lives in Florida with her husband and children where she currently writes full time. Before her debut novel The Downside of Being Charlie she taught high school for several years, where she credits her eclectic students for inspiring her to write young adult novels.

Frenchie Garcia can’t come to grips with the death of Andy Cooper. Her friends didn’t know she had a crush him. And they don’t know she was the last person with him before he committed suicide. But Frenchie’s biggest concern is how she blindly helped him die that night.

Frenchie’s already insane obsession with death and Emily Dickinson won’t help her understand the role she played during Andy’s “one night of adventure.” But when she meets Colin, she may have found the perfect opportunity to recreate that night. While exploring the emotional depth of loss and transition to adulthood, Sanchez’s sharp humor and clever observations bring forth a richly developed voice.

Review : An emotional fast read that really pulls on the heartstrings. Frenchie is dealing with the loss of her crush and how she thinks she helped him die. She is not really but it is tough and the guilt is coming through the pages and you just want to hug Frenchie and tell her it will be alright.

Sanchez pulls you so far into this book, you don't know what Frenchie is feeling without feeling it yourself. She creates a great character who some can relate to in ways. You have to finish it in one reading to know what is going to happen to Frenchie there is no way to get out of it once you have picked this book up!

I really enjoyed everything about this book!
