I was so excited to be approved to read this on NetGalley. This is my very first NetGalley book. I loved the cover and find fairs fun and fascinating. I had no idea that the story would be so unique.
The story is told in reverse, as if the main character Nic, is trying to put all the puzzle pieces together while she shares them with you. It can be a bit confusing at first, but once I got the hang of going backwards, it all came together for me.
This mystery is full of suspense, and twists, and turns. Just when you think you know who the bad guy is, BAM. there is a new, different, bad guy. You probably won't fall in love with any of the characters. They have all had it rough, and it shows. Their circle is small because they are the only ones who truly have it figured out, no one can understand them, but them!
The family dynamic makes the book special. How far would you go for the ones you love? What would you do for your sister? your girlfriend? your daughter? Personally, I come from a very small town, and honestly I could see something like this happening. Secrets are well hidden in a small town.
I did not see any of the twists coming. I was on the edge of my seat at the end. The storyline moved quickly and was never boring. The most unique book I have read so far this year.
*Thanks to NetGalley and Simon and Schuster for allowing me to read an advance e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
