My review - What a fantastic debut!
This book was so gripping and the story really kept me on my toes. I also really enjoyed Savannah's writing.
In this book we follow Sydney. She only has one friend and keeps to herself mostly after an incident years ago in her school. Sydney's father is a psychiatrist and recently died. Sydney starts feel that her fathers car crash wasn't an accident and she starts to think that maybe someone was out to get him. It also doesn't help that she starts to receive threatening texts after the funeral.
The other weird thing Sydney notices is that June Copeland was at her fathers funeral. June is popular in her school and they have never spoken so, what was June doing at her father's funeral and why did she look upset?
Once the girls start to get to know each other more over time, their friendship blooming, things are happening. Someone isn't happy about this new friendship. With more threatening texts, Sydney starts to question everything. Why did June start speaking to her? Who is sending these texts? And could her father actually have been murdered?
This book is hard to describe without giving the plot away. These characters are fantastic. Sydney is sarcastic, says things without thing and sometimes says the strangest things but that is what just made me love her more. She was different and going through something traumatic and not to mention dealing with these horrific texts.
This was such a brilliant read. After you find out some information you have more questions and then the story just gets darker and darker towards the end and you start to question everyone.
A page-turner, YA thriller that, will keep you on your toes and gripped from the very beginning. I enjoyed every second of this book and it was just brilliant.
