This book was extraordinary. I finished it in one day (on a school day too!). And let me tell you, I usually take a while to finish books, but I flew through this one. It was quite similar to We Were Liars, but (I didn’t even think this was possible) 100 times more twisted. The story jumps back and forth in time, and throughout the book, you slowly unravel why the main character (Imogen) is on the run, in the first chapter. There are a series of clues throughout the book, that keeps you eager to finish it, because it is almost unthinkable as to who is responsible for the crime going on.

I can’t explain to you guys how fantastic the horribly twisted plot of this book was, without giving away spoilers. My only complaint is that the characters aren’t likable. They aren’t really meant to be likable either, because the story wouldn’t work if they were, but still. That’s why this book could never be my favorite, but this is an absolute must-read. At the end of the book, your just sitting there, all jaw-dropped, like, “WOW.”

Favorite ARC you’ve read this year?

  1. Okay, this sounds amazing. I didn’t know this book existed before now. I liked We Were Liars but I never loved it like a lot of people seem to. Did you like it more than We Were Liars?

    • If you enjoy a good mystery, it’s better than We Were Liars (a lot more twisted). I personally didn’t like it better since We Were Liars is my favorite book, but I thought it was really good and definitely worth reading.

  2. Ok so that synopsis is really, really intriguing. Normally, I wouldn’t be too hopeful but after reading your review, I know the story will be just as interesting.
    I don’t think I’ve read any ARCs so far this year… But I plan to!
    Great post, Sarah! 🙂
