A Novel by Jennifer Shaw Wolf
Description: Jaycee and Rachel were best friends. But that was before. Before that terrible night at the old house. Before Rachel shut Jaycee out. Before Jaycee chose Skyler over Rachel. Then Rachel is found dead. The police blame a growing gang problem in their small town, but Jaycee is sure it has to do with that night at the old house. Rachel’s text is the first clue―starting Jaycee on a search that leads to a shocking secret. Rachel’s death was no random crime, and Jaycee must figure out who to trust before she can expose the truth.
The premise of the story intrigued me.. it seemed like, pretty little liars-ish, but unfortunately you basically see the ‘whodunnit’ coming a mile away (if you pick up on all the tiny clues) so at the end it’s not actually super surprising. This is the second or third book I’ve read this summer that is totally racist! I hated that. Like every second page was something negative about latinos or latinas. It was all super stereotypical and just felt really wrong while reading it the entire time. The author apparently grew up in a small town but the way she wrote, she didn’t understand small town living at all. Nor did she really seem to understand religion or Christianity, she took literally everything to the extreme…It was an odd book, but I think if it was written quite differently and a few of the storyline plots were changed up a bit it would have been a fantastic book! but unfortunately it wasn’t.. I wasn’t a fan at all… I mean the cover was cool I guess. But otherwise, it was pretty bad…no thanks.
I rate this book
