I don't remember how I ended up in the icy water but I do know this - it wasn't an accident and I wasn't suicidal.
They say you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but when you're a teenage girl, it's hard to tell them apart. My friends love me, I'm sure of it. But that doesn't mean they didn't try to kill me. Does it?
This is an excellent physiological thriller that manages well to mess with you.
The book is written in different forms, first person POVs, a diary, text messages and fun documents stolen from the police.This worked well with the mystery side of the novel and feeding us the information at satisfying rate with the characters.
The main characters ain't that likable. They're believable, except Becca's thoughts about her "Best Friend" are terrible and don't buy that they would be as close as they are in the novel. Besides that, it totally works with the rest of the story.
The mystery side is done very well and you never get a clear solution right till the end. I think it gives a realistic way of discovery and doubts that mislead.
Overall, I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars for stage lights.This was a really great thriller and the clues were lay out got us to stick with the characters' thinking.
I got this for review off NetGalley and is being published by Gollancz on 18 February 2016.
