Life got a little crazy so it took me awhile to finish this but I really enjoyed it I thought the writing was really strong it kept me guessing throughout the entire thing and the characters were interesting My theory about what was going on was so completely wrong it made me laugh This was a perfect book to pick up for the SpookAThon I m glad the hosts decided to make it their group book otherwise I may not have ever picked it up

This is my last review for the next couple of weeks plays the world s smallest violin and unlike the title of this book I don t really have a lot to say about it Which is why this is probably going to be the longest review ever anywaysThe blurb sounded so promising I haven t read many YA thrillers so I was wondering how scary it would be compared to a regular thrillerI have to admit a couple of scenes had me on the edge of my couch with some half ass attempt at hyperventilating but I also have to admit to skimming through a lot of paragraphs because I was bored out of my mindThis is the story of Lana told in the first person by drum rollLana She lives on the island of Gant a fictional island near the coast of Seattle with her dad stepmom and stepbrother Ben Ben s name is being mentioned 873 times in the book Maybe this isn t just the story of Lana eh Or maybe Lana s just slightly obsessed with Ben You can t really blame the lass because Ben was stabbed and thrown off a cliff practically right in front of her eyes All Lana and the police knows is that the culprit was a man with a red painted faceWhile everyone s determined aka slacking the shit out of the actual investigation to find out who Ben s killer is another person is found dead on the bottom of a river Maggie Ben s ex girlfriend The one who also happened to be present when the man with the red painted face dragged Ben out of his carSo while this still sounded promising to me at around 10% into the book this is what happened next Lana Ben Ben Ben yadayada Ben I feel so awful I feel so amazing I m a bad person somebody should spank me The girl just couldn t make up her mind about anything which made it very hard to relate to her This is uite a problem for me if it s the protagonist we re speaking of The other characters horrible teenagers matching dialogues I have no problem with YA and YA drama most of the time but this was just toe cringing The plot Just like Carrie mentioned in her review here from the get go it s pretty obvious who the killer is So you d expect it not to be that person Nuff said there apart from it being a bit of a disappointment in the end The length of the book Somebody edit this please It could ve had a 100 pages less easily and probably would ve been a lot better too thenWhy am I still giving it 25 brownies Because I m a sucker for the Scream formula in which victims are picked off one by one and where everybody s a suspect The edge of my couch peopleJust because I didn t really like it doesn t mean you won t either If you re into YA thrillers and don t mind reading about some Mean Girls type of teenagers this might be a nice summer read for youhttpswwwyoutubecomwatchvcwKWiThanks to Simon Schuster for providing me with a copy of this book via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest opinion

fantasy added in that have you uestioning if everything is real or not until you know the truth The truth is a vindictive fuck I wanted out of the characters most specifically the members of the

fascinating female friendship to read about And there wasn t enough here It s odd saying there wasn t enough when my other biggest complaint is the length of the novel It wasn t necessary and only contributed to a slower pace A good amount could be taken out not harming the novel I promise you I liked thisit had it s faults But still a good read The writing upped the ante for me It truly elevated the story with several passages that are still resonating with me If you enjoyed The Creeping or other YA mysteries you d appreciate Alexandra Sirowy s second novel Heritage of Love villains
