STAR RATINGS GUIDE
This. Gave. Me. Chills.
💛 Look. I have listened to my fair share of mysteries and thrillers. Probably several people’s fair share. And this is an instant fave. In short, it’s a yes from me.
💚 Let’s start with the fact that the premise is instantly gripping. Children doing terrible things? I’m terrified. Sign me up. And it only gets creepier from there. And I mean super creepy. There’s a distinct Freddy Kruger vibe throughout. If there is a scarier sentiment than I FOUND YOU, please write a book about it, make an audiobook and fling it my way.
💜 Major bonus points for the main character, Likeable, especially as she is not made to do incredibly stupid things in sacrifice of moving the plot forward. In fact, that leads me on to my main point. Which is that this is just well written. It’s real and human, with light amid the dark (the characters have fun together at times) and kudos for the very sensitive treatment of mental illness. Huzzah.
🧡 I would put this on a par with Lisa Jewell. I would say it’s smarter than The Silent Patient.
Big thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
