    I will admit that this book was not quite as engaging in the beginning as it was in the end but it was a great story and once things begin to become clear it become a page turning adventure full of mystery Lila s father, Louis Ouimette, has just been released from prison, he had committed a murder 10 years prior, and she decides to leave her aunt in Boston and move in with him to make up for the time she had missed Finn is the son of a wealthy night club owner whose first wife had been murdered by a man named Louis Ouimette Nowadays Finn s father is seen around town with his new wife, Tracie, a woman who is disliked by Finn due to her willing to flirt and her lingerie When Finn witnesses the murder of Louis Ouimette and his step mother Tracie he is shook, his father is left in pieces after it is concluded that Louis Ouimette has killed Tracie and Finn s father had killed Louis Ouimette in self defense When Lila first meets Finn she is purely interested in learning about the man who was her father but once Finn begins to share stories of Finn s mother s murder and secrets begin to be revealed Lila begins to question her father s past and whether or not he killed Finn s mother.

    Finn discovered his mother s corpse when he was seven years old Ten years later he looks out of his bedroom window to see his stepmother shot, and he is later told it was by the same man who admitted to killing his biological mother While coping a second time with something most people are lucky enough not to experience a first time, he also deals with befriending Lila whom he later learns to be the daughter of the killer.This fictional first person told story alternates between Finn and Lila s perspectives which is different from many stories The story unfolds through the individual thought processes of Finn and Lila, but the dialogue is slightly limited for that reason The author Norah McClintock tries to mount suspense, but perhaps I have been exposed to too many detective stories because it was extremely predictable The pace was slow because each chapter was short, and alternating between perspectives played the same scene over from two points of view before moving on Guilty is a good introductory book to suspense novels, but it might be too boring to someone familiar with suspense stories The content is dramatic, but the reading pace is easy and therefore ideal for younger reads being introduced to leisurely reading.

    The reason why this book got so much attention is because of the title Guilty The reason why is because it s a weird title The author of this book is Norah Mcclintock she is from Canada She was born in 1952 and she died in 2 6 17 She lived in Montreal Canada She was a member of the Canadian Society of Children s Authors This author has a lot of different books This book is a fiction book It does not belong to a series This book is not that long but you need to focus when you read it The book is written in a remarkable language The group that should read this book are middle schoolers or high schoolers.If you get scared easily you should not read that book What happened first Finn s mother died 10 years ago Now Finn s step mother died The same person killed both so Who is that Lila s father died to around the same time Finn and Lila want to look for the mysterious killer So what is going to happen to Finn and Lila find out in the book The main characters are Finn and Lila They are normal people Finn and Lila are close friends Lila is the type of person how get really scared and Get nervous really quick Finn is a thankful person and nice as it is showing in the story I think we all relate to them because we lose same close people to us.The theme of this book is that some of your close people might be the worst enemy I really recommend this book for people who are looking to read books full with action I really like this book because it is mid ranged This book actually have a lot of information that the reader needs to remember and make connection Another reason why I like this book is the way the book started out but I actually do not like the ending.

    Notable book as an introduction to mystery, but not so much for adults Although I did enjoy this book, I feel that it was a bit slow for my taste I would still recommend this book to a friend, as I did enjoy and complete it quickly.

    I think this book was very confusing it took me till half way through the book to understand completely what was going on Once i understood it I got into the book I definitely wouldn t read it again.

    I was drawn to GUILTY by the blurb Finn witnesses his stepmother s murder by the same man who killed his mother and his father subsequently shooting the man That, of course, causes him to question things What could possibly have motivated the killer What follows is the definition of a quick read Since I m timing myself for the 48 Hour Book Challenge, I know that I finished in 53 minutes.The story alternates between Finn s point of view and Lila s Lila, the daughter of the killer, grew up believing her father had been framed and unjustly sent to prison This new murder seems to confirm that everything she didn t want to believe about her father was true Then Lila and Finn meet in the police station and begin a tentative friendship As both of them research their pasts, they discover they didn t know as much about their parents as they thought.Both Finn and Lila are somewhat static characters The plot drives GUILTY rather than character growth But they re good characters to tell the story Finn is slightly numb to everything due to reliving his childhood trauma Lila is stuck with her final argument with her father She prioritized working over school and didn t get a scholarship to college She stands by her decision, but feels guilty over how it might have contributed to her father s death GUILTY is a delightful mystery and a nice change from all the science fiction I started my day with The ending is pretty obvious, but I enjoyed the journey there I m interested in reading by Norah McClintock.

    Guilty had enough unexpected twists and interesting main characters to keep me very interested.Finn watches from his upstairs window as a man shoots his stepmother and Finn s father then shoots the murderer That s the opening scene, and we are off and running.Lila s father is the one who shot the stepmother It just so happens that he also murdered Finn s real mother, and has just been released from prison for that crime.The story alternates perspective between Lila and Finn Guilty may be a bit predictable you know they are both going to try to figure out what happened and why I had a pretty good idea of the real story from early on in the book, but I still didn t know it all And even if you do think you know, it just helps you root for the characters to figure it all out.There are some good adult role models, which always is uplifting to me The police detective, the man who knew Lila s dad from prison, the manager of Finn s father s club, and Lila s aunt all help to bring some hope to this devastating story.The pace is unrelenting, so there s no chance to get bored The book is short, making this an excellent choice for reluctant readers The main characters are a boy and a girl, which means this will appeal to both Guilty is a twisted plot with some unexpected developments There s a heart pounding climactic ending, but it is also satisfying I really enjoyed this quick read and can t wait to tell some of my teens about Guilty.

    In Guilty, the character Lila is interested about what happened, but is also mortified that she lost her dad who talked about making up to her the years he was in jail for the killing of Finn Newsome s mom On one side she believes her dad is a good person, but on the other side isn t sure of what to believe any She talks about on page 35 how it s harder than I could have ever imagined to read the newspaper and listen to the news to hear his name She is referring to all the publicity her father is getting for the killing of Finn s step mother She wants to believe that her father is a good person like how she states on page 19 how he said he wasn t proud of himself, but he was already proud of me and he knew I was going places This shows how Lila s dad wasn t proud of his actions but wanted the best for his little girl Lila also says on page 19 The days went by slowly, but it felt like we were both making progress She believes that her dad was making progress when she went to visit him everyday This is why she has a hard time seeing the news and reading any newspaper because they all portray her father as some sort of heartless killer She is interested because she wants to find out the reason why he went back and killed the second Mrs Newsome She wonders why he went back if he was wanting to start a relationship with her and be there for her It doesn t make any sense to her this is why she turns to Mr Newsome s son Finn.

    I just finished re reading Guilty by Norah McClintock I am really fond of McClintock s way of writing, and the structure of her books This book is not part of a series as far as i know This book is a two main character book The way this is written is first person point of view, and every other chapter the POV alternates between Finn and Lila, which are the two main characters Ten years ago Finn s mother was murdered, supposedly by Lila s father who went to jail for ten years No later then 72 hours after Lila s father is released, he returns back to Finn s house The scene ends with Finn s step mother is dead and so is Lila s father As the book progresses on, Finn and Lila figure out what happened and why, trying to clear up there confusion yet still Finn is unaware of the man who killed his mother is Lila s father Finn figures out that even though he hated his step mother Tracy, his dad loved her, maybe even than his birth mother Lila is living on her own now, and her aunt begs her to come back home, but Lila needs to know what happened first she has to stay put if she wants to find out because her aunt has always spoken negatively about him Throughout the book the tension builds until finally the tension ends in this thrilling book and everything is resolved But resolved doesn t always mean for the better.
