This YA thriller is a solid 3 stars. The moment I picked it up, I couldnt put it down. Resulting in me finishing the book in one sitting. Which is not something I can complain about. I love it when a book captivates my attention so hard that I MUST keep reading.

I'm somewhere between 3-4* on this one. The suspense and paranoia builds quickly and kept me reading even when my brain was screaming because SO many poor choices were made.

Thank you to Edelweiss for providing a Digital Review Copy of this book.

I couldn't put this book down until I knew what happened. The story of 5 strangers in a car during a snowstorm had me feeling so claustrophobic. I was just as paranoid as Mira, constantly guessing which characters could or could not be trusted. After the reveal, I felt that the book wrapped up a little too quickly, but it is definitely a read that will keep teens at the edge of their seats.

This is intense! The characters are interesting, though a bit off for me. The ending was a bit anticlimactic and flat for me, but other than that, a great suspense for fans of Richards and April Henry.
