When Natasha wakes up, she is on a hospital bed with no memory of the past 24 hours and has been told she was drowning in a river and was dead for 13 minutes before a local passer-by rescued her and the hospital team revived her. She is expecting to go back to being her popular, normal, everyone-wants-to-be-her self but her friends are acting a little weird. And as Tasha and her old friend begin to look at the facts, not everyone is as it may seem.
Now, if you have read my blog for a few months now, you will probably know that mysteries are my favourite genre of book, just before contemporary and realistic fiction. However, I have always said
that there aren't enough good murder mysteries for teens and YA so when I popped into my Waterstones and saw this mystery book in the YA category I just knew I had to pick up a copy.
Because this was the sort of book I had been looking for, I had high expectations for this book, so I couldn't wait to start reading it. The couple of pages were a little confusing, I had to keep re-reading them before they made sense, but that was more likely because it was late at night, I'd had a long day in London watching The Lion King (my review here) and I was on a train but once I got into it, I was gripped. Whilst a lot of the characters really annoyed me sometimes, it was a very good plot and was fast-paced and well-written.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries or books that are gripping and full of suspense because this book certainly is. It also has a very modern vibe, on a different version to the cover I have a photo of above, there is the quote 'Mean Girls For The Instagram Age' which I think is very true!
Overall, I lovedddd this book a lot, and true to its genre, it doesn't disappoint. Have you heard of this book? Does it sound like something you'd like?
