So this is just going to be a short spoiler free review. I 100% think this is a book that you just need to jump into and figure out on your own, so that is why I this is just a mini review.
As for the writing, it was so well written. The entire time you were left guessing with absolutely no clues as to who is the real bad guy until the Bayview Four start doing their own investigating and start bringing up clues. This book hooked me so much, it was so suspenseful when it came to finding out who killed Simon! I didn’t want to put it down.
The plot is really good too! Not predictable at all! When you start suspecting one person there is something that pops up that changes your mind. The whole time you are just shuffling around in your mind who it could be. Very well done mystery book! And also, that bloody ending!!!!
Overall, I loved it! It was so well written and I never wanted to put it down! It was suspenseful and mysterious and just an amazing debut from Karen M. McManus and I can’t wait to see what she does next!!
