This was an intriguing mystery that was full of twists, turns, and lots of back story. The author builds the mystery and suspense by introducing the reader to the end of the mystery straight away at the beginning of the novel, then skips back in time to show how seemingly innocent events led up to the present. Kitty is a great main character for the story. She's not only smart, devoted to friends and family (especially her older brother, Ben), but she also gives the reader immense insight into their family dynamics and a front row seat to her brother's life. The plot was imaginative and complex, with several factors combining to concoct the present dilemma. I loved how the author incorporated the back story of the characters to allow the reader to witness the progression of events through the eyes of Kitty. It gives us a glimpse of why things happened the way they did and who or what might be responsible. Aside from being a great mystery, the novel also touches on deep topics such as friendship, love, betrayal, family, and how far one will go to rescue and protect someone they love. Definitely recommended for fans of mysteries as well as those looking for a great story to lose themselves in for awhile.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
There is far more drama included in the book, including a pretty good murder mystery that gets the thrill going toward the middle. Great ending ya gotta read to appreciate!
Ben and Kitty are the primary players but Emma is the character to watch for. She is Kitty’s bitchy roommate who brought havoc between brother and sister. Without her this story would not have been quite captivating she is portrayed as a complete psychopath. I love mystery but this one is a bit too soft for my taste, the first half is mainly the set-up of college life: the setting, atmosphere and the relationships, etc. The second half is more dramatic and moves along at a better pace but the suspense is kind of lightweight and the development so predictable I became anxious to see the end. Having said this does not mean it is boring, on the contrary it is quite a sentimental journey.
This lively story is told from the perspective of young adults. The portrayal of friendship and the strong characterization is where this story excels. The dialogue is somewhat stilted although I did overcome noticing this after a while. How Ben slowly spiral out of control, starts drinking, does drugs and argues all the time is especially well represented. The serious problems concerning anorexia as well as family issues are also at the forefront. There is something to please everyone even a murder scene for the mystery buffs to enjoy.
This book should appeal mostly to older teens and young adults and to older adults who which to reminisce about their days in college…
