The book I chose to read is called All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab. The novel is about the life of a boy and a girl after the murder of a loved one. It begins with Neily, a senior in high school who is still haunted by the murder of his ex-girlfriend, Carly, nearly two years before. The book travels back in time and I learned about their relationship, and how they broke up. Carly became involved with the notorious drug dealer, Adam, and humiliated Neily when she dumped him. Carly’s cousin was Audrey, who was dating Adam’s brother, Cass at the time of the accident. Audrey’s father, Enzo, was arrested for Carly’s murder, but Audrey is sure that he didn’t commit the crime. The main storyline follows Audrey and Neily as they unwind the mystery of Carly’s murder, and find out just who Carly really was.
The images in my Vuvox collage represent the tragedy of Carly’s death. They depict how and where she was killed and how others felt about it. The quotes show different aspects of the story because they come from both Neily and Audrey’s point of view. I added the song Whenever You Remember by Carrie Underwood as background music because the lyrics remind me of how I think Carly would feel about her broken relationship with Neily, if she hadn’t been killed.
