Teaser Tuesday (87): The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser is from The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin, on sale today! If you like dark stories with a hint of mystery than this one is definitely for you. I really enjoyed it and I usually don't enjoy dark stories, but there was just something about this book. It's a faux biography about young artist Addison Stone and it's completely unlike anything I've read before.

I went to her gravesite a few days later. Had to see it for myself, by myself. All the flowers were blooming in the summer sunshine. It was real pretty. You wanna know something? You could still feel that girl's spirit. You could still feel all that love around her.

Synopsis of The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone:

National Book Award-finalist Adele Griffin tells the fully illustrated story of a brilliant young artist, her mysterious death, and the fandom that won't let her go.

From the moment she stepped foot in NYC, Addison Stone’s subversive street art made her someone to watch, and her violent drowning left her fans and critics craving to know more. I conducted interviews with those who knew her best—including close friends, family, teachers, mentors, art dealers, boyfriends, and critics—and retraced the tumultuous path of Addison's life. I hope I can shed new light on what really happened the night of July 28. - Adele Griffin

  1. I could use a good mystery! I haven't read any really since The Body Finder and I loved that series. I'm definitely going to look into this one. Really liked that teaser. Thanks for sharing! I had no idea about this book. :)

  2. A false biography? I don't think I've ever heard of that lol. And, that teaser, it sure is a dark story. The writing doesn't sound to me like something I would enjoy but I'm glad you are, girl! xx
