Oh my!! This was a book filled with darkened lanes where the suspense was hidden in the shadows, ready to pounce when least expected. Author Simon Lelic wrote a book on friendship, quite a twisted one at that, which made it all exciting, especially in the last 30%

Sadie had disappeared. Nobody knew if she were dead or run away. Her 5 best friends went in search of her to their favorite place in the woods. One 4 came back, absolutely shell-shocked and in hysterics. There was a corpse in the forest.

My second book by the author, I spent the first two thirds of the book wondering whom to believe. The teens were like icebergs, there was more to them than what they revealed. Each with their contrary, conflicting personalities, raging hormones and different levels of confidence, the author added to the confusion where each had a secret to hide.

The woods added to the atmosphere of the book as the darkness and lack of food and water made the teens wary. Their masks fell away in the face of their fear. And all that remained was the blatant truth which they no longer could escape from.

The plot had a myriad of added nuances. I couldn’t help but feel sympathy for the kids. The one beacon of sunshine was the cop Robin whose bloodhound nose managed to ferret out the truth. But was it too late for the kids? Read the book to find out. I bet it would leave you gasping.

My Sunday breakfast read!!

No idea why my emoji is not smiling. She never does.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

16-year-old Sadie Saunders is missing.

Five friends set out into the woods to find her.

But they’re not just friends…


You see, this was never a search party.

It’s a witch hunt.

And not everyone will make it home alive.

    1. I had a PDF from NG and it didn’t format well and hence I think I didn’t enjoy the initial half and there were no chapter numbers or anything to distinguish one scene from the other, every sentence was in a different line. But the book was formatted well later and I could enjoy it more.
