    1. I ll be honest and say I wasn t the biggest fan of this one which is to do I think with how I took to the main character rather than anything else so therefore highly subjective.The premise is good a child loses her best friend to murder, how will she and those around her cope with such a horrific event Taking in themes of responsibility and what we learn as young women about how to protect ourselves the message is on target I ve given an extra star for that but the execution for me personally [...]


    2. First things first, this book has triggers in it.I received an ARC of this in January, but was not warned of its potentially triggering content of rape and pedophilia.That aside, it was an incredibly chilling story.Children are terrifying Don t have them, don t go near them, just avoid them.I won t ruin the story but it has many twists and turns and the conclusion is akin to Gone Girl in terms of how angry you will be.I really enjoyed how much I could relate to the protagonists world I grew up i [...]

    4. Although this book is fantastically written I am conflicted because I didn t like the main character in the book and for me That makes a book hard to read It is only for that fact that I am giving it three stars Because the writing style really was excellent.


    5. The first two thirds of this book were pretty decent.The story of Billie and Theras friendship how they d grown up together,the likes they shared,the times they spent together.Then the bewilderment when Billie goes missing and is found dead.Trying to understand how the adult world works in terms of sex and rape and perverts I wish it had all continued like this.Because at some point,Thera and her dead girls become quite obviously nuts and scarily clever and single handed my find the murderer and [...]
