Well, I missed the boat on reviewing “Everything You Want Me to Be” — I finished it more than a month ago, and at this point all the terribly deep, intellectual, impressive thoughts I had (so many) have dimmed. But I loved this book so much that I’ll still post a plea to read it. A month later and I continue to think of main character Hattie Hoffman and her story — what could have been — which says an awful lot about how good it was.

Brief synopsis: We start off learning that Hattie — 18, high school senior, actor — is dead. (No happy ending in this one.) Chapters rotate between three narrators: Hattie (pre-death); her English teacher Peter Lund; and Del, the likeable town sheriff. So, who killed Hattie, and why? We follow along over the course of a year, pulled into a memorizing reconstruction of the journey that led to Hattie’s death.

A few chapters in, and I had already “figured out” who killed her. I was wrong. I bet you will be, too. ( )

This book really makes you think about all the secrets around you that you’ll never know. It makes you think of the things people will do for those they love. And I think it makes you think about how much you really don’t know about people around you - no matter how close you are. ( )

Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia
This murder mystery, set in a small town in Minnesota fascinated me right off the top, with very real, deep, mesmerizing characters. An abandoned barn, a production of Shakespeare's Macbeth, and an unhappy marriage make for an interesting setting. Three main characters give us a glimpse into their world, before and after the murder, and the author had me wondering about the dark side of each one of them. The story moves back and forth in time, and only served to peak my interest. There are only two characters I was absolutely certain did not brutally murder Hattie, and that left a bevy of other possibilities. I was kept on my toes throughout.
The main character, Hattie Hoffman, is not your typical teenager. This 18-year-old has it all (talent, beauty, adoration, brains) but wants to be elsewhere. In her attempt to plan out and fulfill her dream of moving to NY, nothing seems to get in her way...except her death. I found her brilliant and unlikeable in her perfectness, and totally manipulative. I wondered throughout the story who would be the one to get caught in her psychotic claws, and tried to figure out how she caused her own death (did she?). She frightened me, and intrigued me, but I couldn't stop reading until I found out who would take the fall. ( )

This struck me as a YA book but does have some sexual content. An enjoyable mystery set in my home state of Minnesota. Very quick book. ( )
