High school can be brutal. Even more so when you’re the new girl. Finding new friends can be a lifesaver. Or not…
Kacey’s only known the dysfunction of life with her mother. So when she moves in with her dad, things are shockingly normal. Including her stepmother and step siblings. She even makes new friends, tops among them being Bailey and Jade. Amazing how quickly they took her in and made her one of their own. Maybe a bit too quickly?
When Bailey goes missing, all eyes turn to Kacey. What does she know about Bailey’s disappearance? And does it have anything to do with the legend of that creepy ghost lady everyone likes to talk about? Kacey soon finds out that her new friends aren’t at all what they seem to be.
This is mean girls at its finest. Two’s company, three’s a crowd and all that. The real thrill, though, comes from the many twists and turns along the way. It’ll keep you guessing up until the very end. And after you’re done guessing, you’ll just be shocked.
I have to start off by saying how much I enjoyed this book. I expected it to be decent, good even. But it was much better than I had anticipated.
The story beings with Samantha surfacing from some type of traumatic event. She has no knowledge of what happened and no memory of the person she used to be. She does know, however, that she was likely the last person to see best friend Cassie, who is now missing. In addition to trying to regain her memory, Samantha starts to realize that she doesn’t like the person she used to be. She’s rich, popular, beautiful, has a handsome boyfriend, and is a typical mean girl. So in fact losing her memory gives her a second chance at life, at becoming the person she wants to be. But when her memories start to resurface, she realizes that something dangerous is lurking in the background.
This was an excellent story for me. I really liked Samantha, and her interactions with the other “mean girls” were entirely believable. There’s also a nice little thriller element to the story with a few surprises towards the end. A highly compelling story that was hard for me to put down!
