Don’t Believe It by Charlie Donlea

I received this book via NetGalley and has been a surprisingly good read . I say surprising because I have not had much luck in terms of picking out thrillers which I  liked. I would have given this a full five stars if I had not figured out the ending and been proved right before the twist officially got rolling.

If you are not so impatient as me, this is a book that you would really enjoy. I remember having requested it long ago, after reading some very interesting reviews in the blogging world. I recollected that nugget of forgotten information a few chapters into the book. It was a blessing going in blind into the book and I will just skim over the salient facts while I recommend it to you in order to ensure you get the same effect. We follow Sidney as she is trying to make a documentary to look into a ten-year old conviction of a girl she sort of knew. The entirety of the process is fitted with some small detours with characters whose presence will be explained only at the end.This is one of the few books I have read of a male author writing a female perspective that I can actually get behind. Sidney is a very realistically ambitious woman who tries to hold on to some core principles. The ending may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it did (strangely) wrap up the story for me.

P.S: I do not get the relevance of the cover, I wish it was something different
