4 out of 5 stars
I really enjoyed reading this book. It took me a little while to get into it at first, but that also could have been because I read this book during the stressful ending of my semester at school. Once I got into the story, I was hooked. You could feel the suspense building throughout the story and gives you an “edge of your seat” kind of vibe which always makes for an interesting read. I love when the tension builds in a book and you’re waiting to see what will happen next. I did not see the twists and turns coming at all!
I think Erica’s character was my favorite in this book. She is such an amazing girl and is down-to-earth. She has a really likable personality and is easy to relate to. I also enjoyed Sasha’s character. I had all of the swoons and feels with those two. The side characters were great also.
