ABOUT THE BOOK:
When she was a child, Cassidy Pratt accidentally started a fire that killed her neighbor. At least, that’s what she’s been told. She can’t remember anything from that day, and her town’s bullies, particularly the cruel and beautiful Melody Davenport, have never let her live it down.
But then Melody goes missing, and Cassidy thinks she may have information. She knows she should go to the cops, but she recently joked about how much she’d like to get rid of Melody. She even planned out the perfect way to do it. And then she gets a chilling text from an unknown number: I’m so glad we’re in this together.
Now it’s up to Cassidy to figure out what really happened before the truth behind Melody’s disappearance sets the whole town ablaze.
Can we just take a moment to admire the cover of this novel! I mean how amazingly creepy is the cover? It fits perfectly with the story and I love it!
I absolutely loved this book! It kept me entertained and hooked from the very start! We are introduced to the main character, Cassidy Pratt. Bit by bit we get pieces of the puzzle about what happened all those year ago that claimed the life of one of her good friends, who is related to Melody Davenport. Melody (and others) have never let Cassidy forget about the fact that she is responsible for starting the fire that killed her good friend many years ago, and Cassidy is often ostracized and ridiculed for it.
One night while out drinking with friends, Cassidy jokes to someone about the perfect way to get away with ridding their lives of Melody forever. Then once Melody goes missing, all fingers point towards Cassidy and she is terrified that someone has found out about her drunken night joke.
A thrilling, addictive story that you will devour in one sitting, it is that good! I loved the various characters in this novel and loved the main character Cassidy. She was an interesting character to get to know and I liked reading about her friendship with her best friend and confidante., which is put to the test due to the events then finds themselves in.
There are many shocking twists and turns that you will not see coming, with one revelation at the end that will shock you! I loved the ending! I will be on the lookout for other titles by this author!
MY RATING: 5/5 stars
