I love it and it totally fits the subject of this book. Period.
How do I even start this?!
After finishing Blood on My Hands, I immediately started reading this one. I knew I'd love it because I became familiar with the writing style and because I was anticipating the thriller in it :).
The writing style was somehow different which got this book another star (or flower in my case.). The pacing of the story was just right. There were some times when I'd be like "Seriously, now?" but I'd forget about that the instance I read the next sentence, so it wasn't a big deal for me.
In this book, we meet Shelby, a nice and wealthy girl who lives in Soundview and goes to the Soundview High School. Her father is a well known photographer and a modeling agency director and a father that other girls would dream of. Her mom is a housekeeper who's been keeping to herself since Shelby's little brother of 4 months died of Pneumonia.
Then, three girls go missing, and while all the three girls are from different cities other then Soundview, the only thing in common between them is the fact that all three of them were photographed by Shelby's father.
Shelby finds herself in a mess and later in shock while trying to prove her father innocent and at the same time deal with the revealed truths about her family.
At the end, she does reach her goal of revealing the real murderer but it came with a price she had to pay.
What I loved:
The story was heartbreaking and breathtaking. It had suspense, a lot of twists and a horrifying aspect.
Shelby, the main protagonist, was a very believable character. She was thinking exactly like a real teenager put in her situation.Read more ›
Kill You Last by Todd Strasser
This is a great YA mystery. Shelby's father is a photographer. Three girls who he did business with have been reported as missing and Shelby's father is a person of interest. Shelby begins her own investigation to try to clear her father's name. She gets some help from her best friend Roman and a reporter, Whit, whom she is beginning to trust. Will Shelby find out who the killer is?
This book had good twists and turns. It was a very quick read and kept my interest throughout. Shelby is a good main characters--she has brains and guts. There was also some humor and romance in the book but the action and the mystery were the main plot points. I recommend it.
Kill You Last is the story of Shelby and how her family, and more specifically her father, ends up the murder suspect of young aspiring models. Pretty young teens are going missing in her town and Shelby's father is their only connection. Now that he is a murder suspect more terrifying secrets are finding their way to the surface about him. Shelby needs to figure out who the true killer is in order to clear her father's name even if it means breaking apart her whole family in the process.
Another insanely good story by Todd Strasser. I really enjoyed how he weaved the web of this one with closely kept family secrets. Shelby was always chasing after a lead (usually a red herring). I loved how even though she learned all those horrible things about her father she never stopped wanted to learn who the true killer was, even if it was someone she loved.
All of Todd Strasser's stories were great so far. They have an Agatha Christie vibe to them that I really appreciate. I am just sad there aren't more books to his Thrillogy.
