It's been one year since the brutal murder of her older sister, Zoë, and fifteen-year-old Echo is still reeling from the aftermath. Her parents are numb, her friends are moving on, and the awkward start to her freshman year proves she'll never live up to her sister's memory. Until Zoë's former boyfriend Marc shows up with Zoë's diary.

At first Echo's not interested, doubting there's anything in there she doesn't already know. But when curiosity prevails, she starts reading, becoming so immersed in her sister's secret world, their lives begin to blur, forcing Echo to uncover the truth behind Zoë's life so that she can start to rebuild her own.

Prepare to laugh your heart out and cry your eyes out in this highly addictive tale as Alyson Noël's Saving Zoë tackles the complicated relationship between two sisters and shows how the bond can endure long after one of them is gone.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Alyson Noël finds the perfect balance of heartbreak and humor in this story about sisters, secrets and saying goodbye. I loved every minute of it! Hailey Abbott, author of the New York Times bestselling Summer Boys series

  • Even though you know from page one where the story will eventually lead, Saving Zoë pulls off the amazing trick of keeping you guessing. You have to follow along with Echo, the good sister chasing the tail of the 'bad' one through the streets of darkest suburbia. Prepare to read this in one long sitting. Think Chinatown. Think 'Where are you going, where have you been?' Think Veronica Mars. Maureen Johnson, author of Devilish
  • Noel writes a smart and compelling story about life, love and loss that you won't be able to put down. Saving Zoeis a must-read. Cara Lockwood, author of Wuthering High

    " It was a very very nice book. I have to say that at the end I didn't like to finish it because it was so nice. Zoe tragically murdered a year ago and her sister Echo got hold of her diary and learned a side of Zoe that made her rethink her own life. I so much wanted to cry at the unfairness of life because Zoe should be alive... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CAiTLiN | 1/15/2014

    " I really liked this book. It involved death, which I'm usually not thrilled about, but I liked the way it was about Echo's life with her sister's death "on the side." It was really interesting, sad, and heartfelt. I enjoyed reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabrielle Arguelles | 1/8/2014

    " 4.5, I'd give it a 5 for it's very captivating story, especially for a book without any type of magic/fantasy. It's one of those books you just can't put down, because you want to know what happens next. However, it's not an award-winning writing, so I gave it a 4. Highly recommend it! "

    " I enjoyed the story, but above all enjoyed knowing that some teens, no matter what really do ok even through the peer pressure. It scares me however, that this still happens and our teens are so impressionable. Good story and moral lessons. "

    " I did like this book but i didn't feel i could relate to it. Maybe just because of the stuff the character goes through, maybe because i've never had a sister. I don't really know. I do know that it was well written and alyson noel is still one of my favorite authors. "

    " Amazing book. I could never imagine myself in Echo's position! It made me so sad. This book is so realistic. The things that happen actually happen in everyday life for a lot of teenagers. I could definitely relate to this book which made it so much better for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joant | 4/28/2011

    " This book is well written, and lands right in the middle for me. This book has one of those awful events that crowd the YA genre, here it is a murder and a porn film, but it rises above this. (sort of) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kenzie | 4/10/2011

    " i liked this book. i didn't think it was anything special though. i fell that when series are only one book long (okay, i guess they're not really considered series then) they don't feel complete. but, for a only one book, it was good. :) "
