Isn't it just like a teenager to think that where she lives is boring and wants to move away to some excitement? Well, the main character of this book, Lily, should have been careful about what she wished for because nothing could have prepared her for the nightmare that was about to happen in Niceville.
This book introduces you to typical teenage characters adjusting to high school life with its cliques and quirks, but also introduces you, through a series of plot twists and unexpected surprises, to a crazy killer. Lily is a typical teenage girl who lives with her little sister and their single mother. Lily is guarding a secret from everyone but her best friend Emily, but when the dead bodies start piling up, it is time for Lily's secret to be exposed.
It is fairly well-written, and I enjoyed how the author created chapters toggling back and forth between the perspectives of different characters. I also like how she created diversity among the different characters: a jock, a jerk, a lesbian, and a nerd are all represented in the story.
I enjoy stories at right around 100 pages, so this book was just the right length for my attention span and held my interest the entire way through as I read it all in one sitting. It is my understanding that the author is a teenager, and I think she has a great future ahead of her. I'll be keeping my eye out for future works from her.
