In her run from these men, she meets Ty, who ends up accompanying her on her journey to get to safety. What Cady does know is that she’s still in danger, she just doesn’t know why.
I’ve had a few less than stellar reads lately, and I was hoping this quick thriller would be just the thing to break my drought. Unfortunately, it didn’t do it for me. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, and felt more like an action book than a thriller. The end also took a turn I wasn’t expecting – very similar to The Outliers, which was another book I didn’t like.
What I did like was Cady and her friendship with Ty. I did find it a little unrealistic that they bonded so quickly and that Ty innately trusted Cady when she didn’t even know who she was or what happened to her, but they were good together and relied on each other, which while not always believable, was a nice add to the story, especially considering most of the characters weren’t super developed and were often flat.
Overall, I don’t have a ton to say about the book, which is probably fitting considering it was only ~200 pages long. It was a very quick read, and if you like action books/movies with a touch of biological warfare, this will be the perfect choice for you. Unfortunately, I was looking for something that was more of a thriller, and this wasn’t a winner for me.
In The girl who was supposed to die, we meet a girl who wakes up with no memory of whom she is, where she is, or why she just heard a voice ordering to have her killed whatsoever.
Just my kind of story! The book picks up fast and it keeps getting better and better. It is when we found out who this girl is, and why people want her dead, that it all goes down the toilet.
I rate the second half of the book as total, unbelievable 'romantic-mystery teen crap.' You know what I mean? Like those simple romantic books that throw a little senseless mystery in to have an excuse for a girl and a boy to meet?
I did like the minimal cliffhangers. That is, we didn't have to nervously bite our nails wondering when something would be explained (other than the girl's true identity), because things always unfolded in the next chapter.
For once, the male character wasn't described as the handsome, take-me-now type. Thus, I was surprised when, after Henry less than favorable description of him, he tagged along.
For so much depth and fine execution put into the beginning of the book, I just wonder what happened to Henry to change toward the end. Even more, I felt as if two different authors had written the book! Henry, the beginning, and some else the second half.

In my opinion, the author did a commendable job in describing the situations and expressing "The Girl's" emotions.
Arrived quickly and was a good price.
Is a great story too. (Mainly for teens)
