It's Saturday, it's summer and, although he doesn't know it yet, everything in Adam Thorn's life is going to fall apart. But maybe, just maybe, he'll find freedom from the release. Time is running out though, because way across town, a ghost has risen from the lake...This uplifting coming-of-age novel will remind you what it's like to fall in love.

I give it - 5/5
My review - Can you believe, this is my first Patrick Ness book?
I know, I know, I need to go read all of his other ones which I will be doing since I read this book I fell in love with his writing and this book was just so brilliant.
If you haven't read release yet then you really need too. It's not too long but, the perfect size to just curl up with at night and just have your heart broken and then healed again. I really loved this book and I really felt for Adam who, had to live up to his fathers exceptions and deal with a pervy boss at his work and, not to mention seeing his first boyfriend again after he broke his heart.
Adam has to deal with a lot in this book and it's all in one day. Starting with a phonecall that sets of the events of the day. Everything is about to change for Adam but, is it for the better?
Adam grew up in a religious household. He knows his parents would go crazy if he let them know that he was gay so, he keeps it to himself. But, after some events he knows he has to tell them to figure out what to do.
I also really hate his boss.
Adam is currently going out with Linus but, he still thinks about Enzo who broke his heart. He made him feel like he was the only person in Enzo's world only to then crush him. He wants to love Linus but, something is holding him back. Will this day change everything?
There is also another story in this book that is kind of magical realism. About a woman who was murdered and comes back to get revenge on her murderer.
I really like the two different stories in this book and how they went together, really fun.
This book contains homophobia, sexual assault and some other parts that some readers might find uncomfortable but, it ties the story together and it shows what some people can be like in the real world and it s a real eyeopener.
A brilliant book from Patrick Ness and I cannot wait to pick up his other ones.
