DISCLAIMER: I haven’t read One of Us Is Lying by the same author and I was still able to read this book so yes, it’s a different story.
A book full of secrets that are just dying to get out
The funny thing with this novel is : the main climax and twist was quite predictable but I still enjoyed it. Adding to that, some moments were very slow paced but it was pretty fast paced over all and sill filled with thrillers. I love the atmosphere she was giving out in this book, Echo Ridge, a local town with its own set of creepiness and mysteries. I still think that some people can find a lot of twists and turns while reading this book and might enjoy it even more. The twins Ezra and Ellery are quite ordinary characters but also very relatable and vulnerable, which I really like about this book.
However, the overall experience was underwhelming and to be honest, I haven’t met a good thriller YA since 13 minutes, so this one was probably better than all the YA thrillers I’ve read so far but not the same quality level as 13 minutes in my opinion.
I think anyone who would like to pick this up, read about murder mystery in one sitting, you got the right book.
