I saw this book on a random pass past the YA shelf (I was actually just taking my copy of The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater) and realised I had seen this book reviewed extensively when it first came out. I did not remember much about the reviews but decided to give it a shot.
I am glad I did read it since it was different from my usual. I liked the first person narration and the leading lady Greer. She is struggling to get comfortable in her new school. She lets us know at the very beginning that a crime has been committed and follows up with the hows and whys of it. It has an element of surprise and dread and this is still a book about school students.
There is a sinister plot at hand and Greer is stuck in the middle of it all. She is a relatively naive individual but learns things the hard way. It is a pretty extreme situation for misfits to find themselves in, but it is built up in a good fashion. Overall an interesting book and one that I would recommend for anyone looking for a quick book with a bite or two in it.
P.S: This is a pre-scheduled post that I am setting to post when I am travelling, I might get to the comments a little later than usual but I will be (probably more than) periodically checking the blog.
