Well read this book to know what actually might have happened to Jill if this nursery rhyme was actually a murder plot!


High school senior Tabitha and her Ivy League boyfriend, swimming star Mark hike into the woods. He falls from a cliff and dies. She stands accused of his murder. Everyone has an opinion. Everyone thinks they know Tabby. Love her or hate her, they judge her.

A golden boy, remarkable swimmer, Princeton’s shining star, wearing bright yellow running shoes went to hike with his girlfriend, only 17, not so girl next door, mostly called trash who doesn’t do anything to deny that notorious reputation, wearing pink running shoes!

The boy fell from the cliff, the girl came back alone! The boy is drown. The girl is scared shirtless!
The girl says it was accident. You know what, the girl’s story has more holes than my sweatpants!

You heard the story on the news. A girl and a boy went into the woods. The girl carried a picnic basket. The boy wore bright yellow running shoes. The girl found her way out, but the boy never did….

Those few sentences were all I needed to read to know that All Eyes on Her is a book right up my ally and it did not disappoint. The pacing, the character development, and the multiple point of views were all on point. Keep in mind that this is a YA mystery so you get all that teen angst and some

Jasmine from How Useful It Is
This book has the easy fast paced teenage voice, though at times I'm tired of their bad mouthing of one another. I like how the story is organized with newspaper clippings, chat messages, diary excepts, etc. Teen relationships are so rocky. I do like one advice during the story was to enjoy more in life than letting the relationships get in the way. In the end, I don't favor any character because they all do something mean to one another.


This book started with Tabby, 17, giving an interview to

Well that was a great premise with a clever style of narration. This murder mystery was narrated from multiple POVs of people close to the main suspect in the murder of the town’s golden boy. We only got to hear the main suspect's thoughts through a handful of diary entries. I loved that I was bounced around from POV to POV and this technique added to the sense of confusion surrounding the facts of the case. I also think the author did an incredible job of weaving in so many unreliable narrators ...more

A really great YA mystery/thriller/suspense. So far Flynn is two for two with me, and I will continue reading her novels, she is not disappointed thus far!! I loved the variety in perspectives and format including text message screenshots, newspaper articles, interviews, it really kept me intrigued and guessing throughout! This had very similar vibes to the Amanda Knox story which captivated me! The only thing remotely negative about this one was the ending was a bit anticlimactic, as I had this ...more

Tl;dr: If you read only one young adult title in 2020 make it this one!

All Eyes on Her is a searing look at gender roles, emotional abuse/manipulation, and how much and how strongly society judges teenage girls. All this and one cracking mystery--one where you, the reader, are left to think about who did what and why and (and this is the best part!) what role your assumptions about teenagers, gender, and society are. (Yes!!)

To say I loved All Eyes on Her is an understatement because I adored it

This one is a must-read for YA thriller fans and those who enjoy taut, social thrillers. I wasn't sure at first how it would work with the conceit--it's the story of a tragic death (or is it a murder?) told from the POVs of a bunch of people who know Tabby, the girl suspected of foul play in her boyfriend Mark's death. It's all about how THEY see her, their assumptions, their snippets of information and speculation. Interspersed with their first person accounts are articles, Tabby's diary and he ...more

You know those books that make you want to stay home with a cup of cocoa and cancel everything and read? This is one of those. An incredibly well-paced thriller with with sharp psychological features that’s loaded with barbed zingers about the unfair expectations facing teen girls, ALL EYES ON HER will keep you guessing until the very end. Is Tabby Cousins a victim or a vicious killer? Is Mark the Shark a golden boy or an abuser who got what was coming to him? The answers to those questions may ...more

High school senior Tabitha and her Ivy League boyfriend, swimming star Mark hike into the woods. He falls from a cliff and dies. She stands accused of his murder. Everyone has an opinion. Everyone thinks they know Tabby. Love her or hate her, they judge her.

ALL EYES ON HER is the story of what everyone thinks Tabitha did to Mark, or Mark did to Tabby. They all have secrets they believe played a role in what Tabitha did or didn’t do. They all lie, or hide part of the truth. Only Tabby

All Eyes on Her is a difficult book to describe, it’s a mystery/thriller wrapped up in a blanket of social issues, dysfunctional relationships and unreliable narrators all told in a variety of voices and perspectives.

Tabby Cousins went on a hike with her uber hot boyfriend, Mark the Shark, golden boy swimmer and returns alone. This is where literally EVERYONE knows what happened: Tabby pushed her boyfriend off the cliff or Mark got too close to the edge and fell off accidentally or ….

I see what the media does to Tabby. Everyone says boys will be boys, but girls? Girls will be monsters.

My friends and my acquaintances and even my coworkers all know I love reading. And one of the questions I get the most is why I am drawn to murder mysteries involving teen girls so much. And the answer is kind of complicated to explain, but feels easy and natural in my mind.

On the one hand, I think a big part of me is fed up with the classics. I grew up with parents that rea

I think I went into this book expecting more than it could deliver. Let me explain:


The story is told from various POVs, except the person accused of murder and, of course, the dead guy. I think that was a very smart, fresh plot device because it forced the reader to play detective the entire book and decide which things said about the accused are fact and which are opinion.
What I didn’t think worked well was the fact that the “truth” (or at least what were lead to believe is the truth) doesn’t

I don’t know why I don’t read more books like this because every time I do I thoroughly enjoy it!

To be honest I genuinely didn’t know which way this was going to go and it was very very interesting to see how each character hard a part to play in the story.

I think I’m going to look at the authors previous book to this because it was such an easy but enjoyable read!

Did the author do zero legal research? This gripping mystery was ruined by an utter absence of legal and courtroom procedures. The victim's family does NOT hire the prosecutor. The medical examiner cannot determine time of death to the exact minute. Cell phones are not allowed in a courtroom. Teenagers bringing 'evidence' to the police should not be taken at their word. You cannot find a footprint in the woods a month after a crime. And the police don't share their every lead with the press. God ...more

3.5 stars rounded 👆🏼This was a fun YA mystery! Did Tabby kill her boyfriend in the woods? You’ll hear from everybody surrounding the case except for Tabby...you have to wait til the end to hear directly from her. The narrator did an exceptional job flowing in and out of all the male & female characters. Highly recommend if you like YA Mystery 🖤

This rainy weather was asking for a Mystery so I tried one and guess what My favourite Mystery list got a new member.

The Story is about a girl and boy who went hiking but returned only one. This story is about Mark-a Princeton-swimming champ-golden boy and Tabby-dark-suspicious-not so good girl, and many other characters. Tabby is suspected for Mark’s murder, every one believes it from people of school to media.

I can't say that I'm surprised by my 3 star rating. Don't get me wrong- I enjoyed All Eyes On Her, but there wasn't anything about this book that felt particularly new/exciting to me, or made me feel like I HAD to keep reading it in order to find out what happened next.

The only reason this lost a half star is because it lacked character diversity. Everyone was straight and white.

This is really good. It is a young adult psychological thriller. Perhaps thriller is not the right word because it is not scary but it does keep you guessing. The structure of the novel is interesting. A young woman is accused of murder after her boyfriend dies in mysterious circumstances. The book is told from the perspective of those who know her... all of them teenagers or young adults themselves. This is an excellent adaptation of the genre for a younger audiences... there are too many refer ...more

That was fun! As always during my shitty reading year, I’m looking for books that I can read quickly and hold my attention. This book definitely did both. I liked all of the points of view, the articles, the texts, etc. I didn’t develop a lot of theories like I normally would so I was hoping to be surprised by the ending. I was, but I’m also unsure of how I feel about it.

Who are we suppose to root for here?!
We're not suppose to know; which is exactly why I liked it. While reading your thoughts and opinions go everywhere, because you'll never know what the truth is. I'm a big fan of the idea that if you ask different people about one subject they will give you different stories; and that is exactly what this is,

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read an early copy!

All Eyes on Her was fast-paced, dark, and, at times, darkly funny. It reminds me of a 1990s high school movie. The coolest part about the book is the storytelling format. Tabby and her boyfriend went on a hike one day. Only Tabby came out of the woods. What comes next is a media frenzy about a girl and her dead boyfriend and the possibility that he is dead because of her. What’s fresh about the formatting is that the

A girl and a boy went into the woods. The girl carried a picnic basket. The boy wore bright yellow running shoes. They weren't planning to stay out past dark, but the sky was pitch black when the girl found her way back, without the picnic basket and without the boy.
