Things weren't so peachy in Cathy's life before Victor broke up with her. Her father died unexpectedly, she's failing school, and her best friend is mad at her. But when Cathy decides to investigate Victor's reasons for ending their relationship, things suddenly go from bad to very, very, very bad as her findings produce more questions than answers. For instance, what does the death of Victor's co-worker, the strange mark that appeared on Cathy's arm, and the surreal behavior of several Chinese elders have to do with it?Through Cathy's unique and irresistible voice-and lots of proof in the form of letters, photographs, date book entries, telephone numbers readers can call, websites they can access, as well as secrets only a careful reader will be able to decipher-readers will enter a strange and fascinating world where things often aren't how they appear. Two-color illustrations plus supplemental material. Ages: 12 and up

I liked this book, but I recommend to read the french version if you can, as it is more interesting, and there is a pocket with proofs inside, so you can really go on a hunt to find Cathy, as if you were Emma! Sure, the price might be a bit high (about 20 euros or 40$), but it's totally worth it!

The presentation of the book (journal entries, newspaper clippings, websites to visit, historical documents, etc.) is pretty neat in theory, but the actual execution is kind of a big mess. Every journal entry is covered in doodles and extra bits of information added to the margins, and I kind of got a headache after trying to decipher just a handful of pages. I'm looking at my stack of library books to go through and thinking that I'll probably just pass on trying to slog through the rest...

i thought this entire series was very unique and interesting. It puts a new spin on the concept of immortality. Unlike sockmonkey, i thought the idea was very fresh and i really enjoyed the book

honestly? this was what this book was about? really very stupid, sure the cover looked interesting and the fact that the inside cover of the book is about a bunch of fun girly things draws the reader in... but after page 1- she's raiding her boyfriends desk? she's ebing depressed? I mean, don't be fooled there are like 50 pages in this book about her going through her boyfriends desk! I didn't even read up to the park where he turns immortal or whatever... but while at the subject what could be stupider? Don't be fooled and DONT read this book.
