I received this book for free from the publisher, so that you to them and in exchange I will be doing an HONEST review. This is a YA psychological thriller that had me spooked. If I’m honest with you, the entire book is a slow burner and nothing really seems to happen and yet the whole time I was on edge because I knew something was up. This book is the equivalent to going to see a horror film and that feeing of forbidding you get when you’re waiting for something to jump out at you.
This isn’t the best thriller I’ve ever read, this isn’t a criticism it’s just my opinion but it was still a really good read for me. I read this in one sitting because I just had to keep turning those pages and finding out what was going on. And as much as I did enjoy the whole book, even if the majority of the book had been bad it still would have been worth it for THAT ENDING. Think I’m gonna be looking over my shoulder for a long time, cause this book is savage!
