Thank you to the publisher for the advanced audiobook via NetGalley.



More than two dozen ways to die.

Just one correct path.

Do you have what it takes to survive?

Brightside is a beautiful mountain town blanketed by snow. Towering fences create a stark contrast to the serenity that appears on the surface. Your only crime is telepathy, yet your stay here is permanent. Your fate has been determined by society’s fears.

The outlook is bleak unless you manage to become part of the escape that’s about to go down.

Watch your back, choose wisely, and be careful who you trust.

Good luck getting out of Brightside in this interactive novel.



I enjoyed the uniqueness of this audiobook as it brought me back to my childhood and one of my favourite types of books as a kid – choose your own adventure books. I was hooked on those books as a kid and was thrilled to have the opportunity to listen along to Try Not to Die: In Brightside.

I loved following along this audiobook and making the many difficult decisions that you must make at the end of each chapter. Sometimes you are tasked with choosing one of two options, and sometimes it was on in three options, which makes it that much more difficult, because if you choose the wrong answer you die, then have to select a different choice. Each choice you make is unique in the sense that the story changes with each choice that you make. I love that about this book!

A definite must-add that I recommend you add to you TBR.


MY RATING: 4/5 stars
