Psychological and suspenseful: the gripping story of one girl living a double life.

My Thoughts

I loved this book. I was slightly worried when I found out it was MPOV because I had never read a book that had used it well but Saskia was brilliant at switching between the characters.

I thought the characters where great and I loved all of them even the teeny tiny side characters. There was great character development and I definitely welled up at the end.

My only problem with this book was that there was a section of the ending that I thought was a bit unrealistic but it was essential for the plot.

In conclusion, it was agreat book that I would recommend to all ages. I'm giving this 4.5/5 stars.

*This book was given to me for free by netgalley in return for an honest review, however this doesn't effect my opinion*
