As good as dead is an exceptionally well
written book. From the very first sentence
all the way to the very last page it keeps
you entertained. I loved how the ending of
the book was so subtle yet it gave you enough
information to let you know exactly what
happened. I loved the different perspectives
that we received from this book and it was a
very enjoyable read. The book takes us on a
journey through Pip’s 3rd year in a row
investigating a missing persons’ case but
everything changes when the person missing is

This book kept me on my toes till the very end. I wouldn’t say it was predictable at all, and was overall very creative and interesting to keep up with Pip as she uncovers the truth of a murder accusation case. It was intriguing to see the way she worked through the case, with limited resources and being a teenager investigating such a taboo topic in her town, along with the mental toll it took on her. This is overall fast paced and also has a slight romance. I feel like the book could have been a little shorter, however, the writing is still very interesting.
