* "This beautifully realized debut delves into the emotions of a girl recovering from drug addiction and grief, all wrapped up in a solid mystery."―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

* "Sharpe creat[es] a lacerating picture of grief and regret. ...The murder mystery is compelling, and its resolution serves as a reminder that love is irrevocably tied to loss and that few people get out of it unscathed."―Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

"This romance is full of struggle and strong emotions, likely to find an appreciable YA audience."―School Library Journal

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Breathtaking - New Favorite of 2014 6. April 2014
Von Jess @ Such a Novel Idea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
*I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Do you ever start a book and almost immediately just know that it is going to change your life? It doesn’t happen very often, but really early in this book, I had already made up my mind that this book was going to rock my world. And it did, even more so than I predicted.

Reading a book is never the same experience. The mood, time of day, setting, music all can play a huge role in how a book attaches to your psyche. Sometimes the stars align to create a perfect experience, and one such time was reading Far From You. Pandora was playing all the perfect music for the scene, and the thunder was humming in the background, and I was just in this reading bubble of bliss and heartbreak.

Because this book is full of that. Heartbreak, not bliss. The bliss comes from experiencing something magical. Tess Sharpe not only has an amazing ability to write and tell a story, but she has the ability to tell it in a way that leaves you breathless and wanting more.

This book was not linear – we go from present day to past every other chapter. And while this normally might be confusing or break the flow of the book up, Sharpe did it perfectly. We first see Sophie right now — how she is handling the past and trying to move forward. And at the end of every scene, we are swept up in a memory, a time from before her best friend has died. The scenes are sometimes helpful to what we just learned in the plot, and other times they are the whisper of a memory you might have if you were Sophie. It really puts you in the mind of the main character in a way I have only experienced a few times.

And feelings — you will feel everything in this book. I was having a physical feeling of pain just a few pages into the book. My heart hurt and there were times when I had to just put down the book and take a moment to compose myself. It was just that emotional and raw.

The book is full of secrets and layers and messy and tangles. I don’t know how she did it, but Sharpe made a stand alone book a contemporary, mental health, romance, mystery, and thriller all in one and didn’t make it overdone or trite. Everything fits together like perfect puzzle pieces.

I knew the book had romance, but the way Sharpe chose to layer in that romance was incredible. I can’t talk about all the things I want to talk about, because you really just have to experience it for yourself as a reader. I loved the choices Sharpe made, especially in the end. It was bold, real, and honest — and sure she could have taken another, easier route, but it wouldn’t have made quite the impact. And really, I should have known, because her Twitter bio kind of says it all.

This is the book I’ve been looking for all year. The book that would grab me and not let go even when the pages were done. I read the entire thing in less than three hours, but it will stay with me for a long time. Far From You is now my favorite book of 2014, and even though it is April, I don’t think it will fall down the ranks very easily. Tess Sharpe — I hope you are out there knee deep in some new work in progress. Because this world will be a dimmer place without more of your words in it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Strong Debut Novel 8. April 2014
Von J Settles - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a story about love, addiction, loss, friendship, and grief. Author Tess Sharpe takes all of these complex emotions and masterfully weaves them through this story which focuses on recovering addict Sophie Winters. Sophie's best friend was murdered in what everyone assumes was a drug deal gone wrong and blames Sophie even though she is 6 months sober. The police refuse to look for anyone besides a drug dealer so it falls to Sophie to uncover the true identity of the killer.

Far From You is more than a murder-mystery; it is a love story and a story about dealing with the loss of a loved one all at once. It is a great debut novel from Tess Sharpe, and I expect big things from her in the future.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Debut Novel From Tess Sharpe Shines 11. April 2014
Von Kathryn Esplin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I ordered this book a week before it was released, based on the excerpt I read. The words I had read kept ringing through my brain and I could barely wait for its release. The day it was released, Amazon delivered it to me at 1 a.m. on my Kindle, and I just had to peek. I read it right then and there, in one sitting.

What struck me when I read the excerpt and the book was Ms. Sharpe's voice. Dead on. No pun intended, but dead center for the world she writes about. This book is not a world of pretty, but of real. The characters are real, the voice is real.

Ms. Sharpe has immense talent. She's going places.

Writing real in a smooth voice that seamlessly sweeps the reader up into the author's world isn't easy. It's easy to overdo or underdo the voice just a smidge and oops -- verisimilitude falls right off the map. Voice that comes off as natural is a gift.

I loved the characters, the story and the gritty world -- this is the world we live in. It's not easy to paint characters with enough depth to enable the reader to feel as if she knows the characters. We see people like this in our lives.

Another test that a story is remarkable and well told is that the reader replays it in her mind over and over after she's read the book.

Tess Sharpe's "Far From You" has become part of my mental and emotional repertoire of scenes that replays itself as I go about my life.

I heartily recommend this debut novel. I could see this become a movie.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Heartbreaking and Suspenseful! 8. April 2014
Von Kend77 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Sophie has recovered from a devastating accident with an addiction to pain killers. After spending months with her aunt, getting clean, she has returned home to her best friend Mina, and Mina's brother Trev. When Mina is murdered and drugs are found on the scene everyone is quick to believe Sophie is to blame. Forced into rehab by her parents, Sophie returns to find Mina's killer.

This story was heartbreaking and suspenseful! An unexpected love triangle adds complications and confusion for Sophie, who finds herself in danger from Mina's killer. I really enjoyed this story, its complications and suspense kept me reading late into the night.

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Far From You 25. April 2014
Von Always YA at Heart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Far From You is a story that has a little romance, a little mystery, and a lot of emotional tragedy. Sophie, the main character, deals with addiction, death, friendship, love, pain, and loss. There is a love triangle of sorts, though not your typical one. While the story was good, it wasn't great. I kind of had the feeling from the synopsis that it was going to be a suspenseful murder mystery, but it really wasn't. That aspect was downplayed for the most part, which was kind of disappointing and something as a reader you might want to be aware of going in. Overall, while the novel did have its good parts, it still didn't blow me away, though I did read several reviews where the reviewer really did like the story.
