Nico Cavan has been adrift since her mother vanished when she was four-maternal abandonment isn't exactly something you can just get over. Staying invisible at school is how she copes-that and listening to alt music and summoning spirits on the Ouija board with her best friend and co-conspirator in sarcasm, Obe. But when a chance discovery opens a window onto her mom's wild past, it sparks an idea in her brain that takes hold and won't let go.
On a ferry departing Seattle, Nico encounters a slight blond guy with piercing blue eyes wearing a hooded jacket. Something in her heart tells her that this feeling she has might actually be the truth, so she follows him to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest. When she is stranded there by a winter storm, fear and darkness collide, and the only one who can save Nico might just be herself.
**Thank you so much to the publisher for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**
Save Me, Kurt Cobain was a beautifully-written story. I honestly was originally drawn in because of the marvelous cover (I mean seriously, LOOK AT IT) but the story itself was absolutely amazing.
When the story first started off, I felt that it was kind of slow. It was honestly a little hard to push through, but once it hit the 40%-ish mark it got much better and more intriguing. At that point, the novel was something that I didn't want to put down! However, because it was a little hard to get into, I'm giving this book 3 stars.
I went into this book not really knowing anything about Kurt Cobain and I also don't know that much about the '90's itself, so this book was a pretty big learning opportunity. It honestly has made me want to go out and learn more about Kurt Cobain/Nirvana. I also just want to go out there and find out more about great bands and listen to some music from Nirvana!
I know for sure that I will be recommending this book to people in the future!
