Fatality is a well written book about a plane crash and how 16 years handled it when no adult with training was around. I would recommend you borrow it at the library. I was sorely disappointed in Caroline's new book and I really didn't think the ending in this story sounded right

Fatality is a well written book about a plane crash and how 16 years handled it when no adult with training was around. Recommend this book for anyone teen or adult. I was sorely disappointed in Caroline's new book and I really didn't think the ending in this story sounded right. It was too sudden and just didn't fit in. To sum it up it was an okay book.

Fifteen-year-old Rose is a good student and stays out of trouble until she steals a police car so she can destroy her seventh grade diary they have confiscated. Readers will have to suspend their belief that a good kid (or even a troublemaker) would go this route, then continue to pretend a four year old adult murder investigation would center around a twelve-year-old acquaintance of the suspect's daughter. Then, readers will have to believe that young Rose wrote what she may (or may not) have known about the murder, including her crush, who's three years older than she is.

Still, I enjoyed this fast paced YA novel. Caroline Clooney has created a likable character in Rose, even when we don't understand her motivations. I finished the book in an afternoon.

I couldn't put this down! Although for young adult readers, this kept me guessing until the last chapter. Not too scary for 13 uo.

Fatality is a well written book about a plane crash and how 16 years handled it when no adult with training was around. It kept my interest throughout the whole story and I am looking to buy more from this author. Recommend this book for anyone teen or adult. I do have a couple of other books by the author and liked them as well. She does not disappoint.

In the novel, Fatality, by Caroline B. Cooney, Rose is caught in an intriguing police investigation. When the book begins, we meet Rose, a young girl who is contemplating stealing her diary back from the police officers who took it. What precious words are written in the diary, we don't know, but they must be important. Rose is being interrogated in a murder investigation and refuses to speak, only sharing that she "didn't see anything." Yet, with the retrieval and destruction of her diary, the police and her parents can hardly accept that answer. They assume that she must know something and that it was written in her journal, but no one can get it out of her. Through this tangled web we meet Rose's parents, her brother Tabor, and her school friends/acquaintances, Chrissie, Alex, and Anjelica, whose father is also involved in the investigation. As the reader learns more, the case begins to unfold and things become clear, but, we are still left in the dark about the diary entry. Does Rose know something and had she written it down? Who is she protecting? When Rose almost gets run down by a dark truck, her family urges her to give up whomever it is she is protecting. Unfortunately, it might be too late...

I don't typically enjoy thrillers, but I was hoping to read a good one to get into them. Unfortunately, I'm still fishing for the perfect thriller to grab and hold my attention. Fatality is not your typical thriller. It takes place after the crimes have occurred and therefore, is not very suspenseful. The ending is unexpected, yet not climactic enough to be satisfying. I liked that Cooney put in a few different conflicts to spice up the story, but overall, it just didn't do it for me. On a positive note, the plot was intricately woven involving many characters in a few different story lines. Also, it was nice that the plot didn't just involve murders, chases, and escapes like some others in the genre. Ultimately, I liked the book and would recommend it to my students. But if you're expecting a suspenseful and compelling story with many twists and turns, this isn't the book to choose.

Four years ago, when she was twelve, Rose went away for a weekend with Anjelica, an extremely rich and popular girl. Anjelica's father drove them to the family's lakeside compound, stopping on the way to have a shouting match with his business partner while the girls waited in the car. After the weekend was over, the business partner, Frannie, was found dead with her head crushed by a rock. There was no doubt it was murder, and Anjelica's father was the prime suspect. Rose and Anjelica were both interviewed by the police and both insisted they didn't know anything and hadn't seen anything, but the police assumed they were covering for Anjelica's father. The case was dropped with not enough evidence to prosecute.

Now, though, the case has been reopened. Police visit Rose's house and Rose's mother offers them the diary Rose used to write in when she was twelve, thinking there might be some sort of clue in there that would help. Rose is desperate for the police not to read what she had written, though, so she steals the police car and drives it to dispose of the pages in the diary. Now police are absolutely certain that Rose was a witness to something, and they are putting the pressure not only on her, but on all of her friends as well. What did Rose witness? Why won't she confide in anyone?

I liked the suspense of trying to figure out why Rose was so upset at the thought of people reading her diary. This book showed realistically how adolescent girls interact; the flashbacks to [...] and how badly the girls treated each other seemed completely accurate. I really liked the way the ending all came together, although it seems Rose could have saved herself a lot of trouble by confiding in someone.
