Rating: 3.5 stars...although I don't think "like" is quite the right word. The book is very well written and packs a massive punch in just 30 pages. In that short space, I felt I got to know - and like - Eddie. From the blurb, I thought I would enjoy this book. The ending, for me, came out of nowhere...and wasn't what I was expecting at all. It was very cleverly, eloquently and vividly written...and left me feeling most uncomfortable and with questions about what happens next to Joy.

This book was quite a surprise for me. It is a very small book but it was very well written.

Snakes by Travis Heermann
I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. The story was well written and kept my attention to the end. I loved that the story is about a girl whose struggles can relate to real life but the author also throws in some creepy aspects that are not so real yet exciting. This is a short read but an excited and twisted one which I loved!
This book is short but intense. I so did not see that ending coming. Just as I'm getting caught up in the lives of Eddie and Joy...that was one crazy twist!

I won this book through Goodreads First Reads.
