Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Abandoned by her mother on Jellicoe Road when she was eleven, Taylor Markham, now seventeen, is finally being confronted with her past. But as the reluctant leader of her boarding school dorm, there isn't a lot of time for introspection. And while Hannah, the closest adult Taylor has to family, has disappeared, Jonah Griggs is back in town, moody stares and all.
Jellicoe Road was heartbreakingly amazing and amazingly heartbreaking. I loved how real the mystery and everything else was in it. I loved the 5 characters that it would switch to. The main character, Taylor, was a very strong character. Some parts were a little hard to keep up with, especially with the territory wars and going in between Taylor and the other 5 people. Like I said, this book was heartbreaking and I was sobbing by the time I got to the epilogue.
