I received a copy of this book free via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This novel was absolutely riveting. It does not take the path you expect it to AT ALL. It was only in the last quarter that I started having stronger suspicions and putting things together. Honestly, I would LOVE a sequel to this. The second perspective was so menacing and then so… clarifying. It totally threw me.
I can’t say too much about this novel without giving away all the twists and turns!
The note I want to end this review on is that the characters were absolutely fantastic. I had mixed feelings about one, not because she was poorly written but because she was so well written – she felt SO real and she was so frustrating! I related so strongly to Em, the way she feels things and internalises, and I adored the side plot with Rosie. I would totally re-read this and I can’t wait to see more reviews. Five stars.
