This book was bad, not a likeable person in it. Delta marries her high school sweetheart despite the fact that he cheats on her non-stop. It was really just about a group of people that needed to grow up and let high school go.

3.5 stars. Fifteen years earlier, a group of teen girls formed a clique called the Five Firsts -- Amanda, Bailey, Carmen, Delta, and Zora with Ellie wanting to be a part of the group. One of them drowned at the end of their senior year and maybe that wasn't an accident.

At their 10 year reunion, another one of the group dies. The deaths continue in current time. Way too much of a coincidence.

The first third of the book describes teen girls in hormonal lust for a guy, Tanner. I found it difficult

A decades old tragedy comes back to haunt a group of high schoolers that leads to more deaths and mystery.

They were known as the Five Firsts. Tragedy strikes this elite group at a pre-graduation party when one of their group dies. There are a lot of rumors floating as to whether her death was an accident. Now years later others from that graduating class start dying mysteriously. One of the group is suspected of murdering her husband. It soon becomes obvious that there is a vendetta happening.

This was a fairly good thriller. It sort of wandered around a bit for awhile. But then it really took off at the end. It kept you guessing right up until the end.

When there's trouble on the horizon with the elites....
Ahhh! The Five Firsts are about to experience a shocker right before senior year graduation when one of their own dies.
Carman well lets just say she wasn't so lucky when she died trying to save another. Was this an accident? How could this happen trying to save the hottest guy in the school?
Full steam ahead as now these elite groups join up for a reunion that showcases their similarities but also their differences. With the latter being

Note to self - if this ends up being a series, skip it.

3.5 star rating. I have to start off by saying I typically like Lisa Jackson's books, however I felt this wasn't on par with her average book. The book starts with a group of high school girls that forms a clique called the First Fives. There are five girls in the group, along with Elly, really wishes she was part of this group. At the end of their senior year, one of them ends up drowning. Perhaps it wasn't an accident? The book then transitions to their 10-year reunions, where another one of ...more

I have loved all of Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush books, and Last Girl Standing , did not disappoint. This book is about five girls , who becomes friends in high school, and the tragic death of one of them at a party, just before graduation. Was it an accident or something more sinister, years later it seams all of them were keeping secrets. Last Girl Standing kept me guessing to the end, and thats the best kind of story, the ones you cant figure out to the end. Great job to the authors. Thank you ...more

this book starts out with 5 main girls in high school. It is full of teenage angst and jealousy. The weeks before graduation one of the girls drowns. Is it an accident or murder? Then the book skips 10 years and more deaths of the friends. I had a hard time with all of the jumping back and forth and I really just did not like most of the characters, too much angst and cheating among everybody. The end of the book was good and the killer was not who I expected. I would give a 3 1/2 but with the ...more

3 1/2 stars. Funny thing about this book is that I had just finished another book by another author written a few years ago that had basically the same storyline. I just found it odd that I just read two books back to back with high school friends that were being killed off. I may have rated this higher and I just not read a similar book and maybe was perhaps a bit bored by the end. It was still a very good book just wish I hadnt read them back to back. ...more

I have to say that this book is nothing new or special and it's been done hundreds of times but many authors....reminded me in many ways of the movie "Heathers" but for some reason it actually kept my attention until the very end. It's been many years since I read either of the sister authoress's but it was an interesting book back into their world.

I enjoyed the book, it was one which held my interest and one which I could just read and enjoy. DId some of it seem not plausible? maybe but that was ok as I had pretty much bought into the characters and cared enough to want to know how it all ended.

This is a good read however it is also an example of "less is more" the plot was pretty long and drawn out and then little time was spent on the development of the twist at the end leaving it rather flat.

Secrets, lies, infidelity, jealousy, murders this book has it all. I actually read this in one sitting... That's how much I enjoyed it. The storyline flows so well and the characters are interesting to say the least. I really was never sure who the killer was. I highly recommend this book.

Highly recommended!

2.5 . I just rounded up because I've been a long time fan of these sisters. It had vapid characters you couldn't root for, and a very basic, Lifetime movie plot. I finished though, so there's that.

A good book with twists and turns. A lot of characters that I had a little trouble keeping track of but it could be my mind set at this time.
