THE UNFINISHED LIFE OF ADDISON STONE
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
One of YA’s most original voices takes on a fascinating character study of a fictional young artist and her tragically short life. Readers learn of Addison through those who knew her — and they paint a varied picture. Griffin’s mixed media approach to Addison’s story is fresh and welcome; art and photographs dot the pages of a compelling biography.
Addison Stone was a promising young artist. Though she grew up as a penny-pinching hustler in an artsy Rhode Island town, she catapulted herself into a life she always dreamed of as a NYC “it girl.” But then she dies, under very suspicious circumstances. Was Addison killed? People are quick to point fingers, but there was more to Addison’s life than most people understood. (SOHO TEEN, Aug., 256 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9781616953607, HC, 14 & Up)
