Tash's pick

Title: Every Breath (Every Word #1)
Author: Ellie Marney
Released: September 5th 2013 
Publisher: Allen and Unwin
Add it to Goodreads 

Rachel Watts has just moved to Melbourne from the country, but the city is the last place she wants to be.

James Mycroft is her neighbour, an intriguingly troubled seventeen-year-old who's also a genius with a passion for forensics.

Despite her misgivings, Rachel finds herself unable to resist Mycroft when he wants her help investigating a murder. He's even harder to resist when he's up close and personal - and on the hunt for a cold-blooded killer.

When Rachel and Mycroft follows the murderer's trail, they find themselves in the lion's den - literally. A trip to the zoo will never have quite the same meaning again...

why i chose it

This book sat on my shelves for two years and I wished I read it sooner  once I finally picked it up. This series became a  favourite because of Watts and Mycroft. There isn't another pairing like these two. They may be inspired by their famous counterparts but these two teens are unique.  Two lost souls who found their way  to each  by chance and ended up  solving a murder and falling in love.

They had their highs and lows but this was the perfect YA crime series. It started my love affair with this author and you won't be disappointed. You will be devouring this series and craving more after finishing this series.  Marney's gritty style doesn't sugarcoat things. She is realistic about life and how things are never smooth sailing. The crimes are top notch and fitting of the setting. Marney offers a everyday look at Australian life, tackling areas that sometimes forget in fiction adding authentic to Australian YA that is needed.
