Six months have passed since the last Ellerton teenager died, but Darina is still traumatized by the stabbing of her own beloved Phoenix. But there's work to be done as Darina must now turn her attention to the shooting of Summer Madison - the beautiful and gifted, singer-song-writer with a heart of gold. It's been nearly a year since the random shooting in a shopping mall caused Summer's meaningless death.
Summer left behind recordings of her wonderful songs and a deep sadness amongst high school friends. Now Darina must act as Summerās agent to track down the psychotic killer in a clear search for justice. With the sound of Summer's music constantly playing inside Darina's head, recalling the wonderful months when she was alive and performing her first gigs, Darina, Phoenix and the Beautiful Dead are determined to catch the crazed killer. And all the while Darinaās love for Phoenix continues to beat ...
My Rating: 4/5
This book is slightly different to the previous two books as Darina was more involved in the actual death part not just the solving part.
Summer was less involved that I thought she would be considering the book is named after her.
Darina is a pretty frustrating character. From the way she treats other characters to the way she pines after Phoenix her dead boyfriend. Also when she finds out the truth about Brandon and her car she doesn't even care.
I liked the mystery aspect again with the book as I did with the previous books but I wanted there to be a greater emphasis on it. It was good how there were never any real suspects until the truth was revealed.
