Review:

Willa and her mom move to Los Angeles with her new Stepfather. In her new house, she starts having strange visions, like dead bodies in the pool and messages in the walls. Meanwhile, someone is reenacting famous movie murder scenes. She thinks she is going crazy and believes that she has to tell someone about it, but her only options are; Marnie, a new friend that she doesn't trust completely, Reed, her stepfather's assistant who seems to understand how she feels, and Wyatt, a really smart guy who has a deleterious obsession with the "Hollywood Killer". The question is; Can her visions be connected to all of this murders?

You won't be able to put "Famous Last Words" down until you know what happens. There was a time were my heart kept beating uncontrollably fast. This book is wonderful. It has everything you need; mystery, drama, romance, comedy, sarcasm, and much more. 

The characters were all amazing but my personal favorite was Wyatt. He reminded me of David Stark from "Rebel Belle" by Rachel Hawkins, which is a great thing. He was cute in a quirky way, respectful and smart. What else can you ask for?

If you are in the mood for a thriller/mild mystery/ romance book you should totally pick it up. I guarantee you will truly enjoy it.
