Recommends it for: People who are dense.
For whatever reason, my review on audible was cut off, and there is no way to edit it. So here's the full rant, because I feel like readers should be fully warned about the cringe-worthy writing in this laughable excuse of a novel (that's actually the size of a novella, really). I don't know what these other high-praise reviewers read, but it couldn't possibly be the same thing I did. I mean really, I feel ashamed of mankind, actually embarrassed that people think this is good writing. Just show ...more

SPOILERS I was thrilled to win this book on goodreads, firstreads and looked forward to reading it. Unfortunately, this book fell short on my expectations. I didn't realize that it was a YA/Christian read, which really didn't matter. The Christian angle was just there, almost if it was put in as an after thought. The story lacked substance and there was little to no character development. The ending was just bizarre, I had to re-read the beginning to remind myself who the killer was...he was su ...more

YA thrillers are my jam, so I was excited to pick this one up. It’s about a girl named Shayley who is the daughter of a famous singer. In the middle of her mother’s concert tour, someone is murdered.

I thought the murder mystery was well done with plenty of red herrings. I didn’t suspect the perpetrator at all so that made reading much more exciting.

Overall I enjoyed this one and I am excited for book 2 - that was quite the cliffhanger!

I got this book free after reading about it on the nook blog. It was described as a modern Nancy Drew where teenage Shaley investigates the death of a friend. However Shaley isn't even close to being a teen detective. She spends time thinking about events that happen to her and information the police tell her but doesn't really do any sleuthing. This book is more of a teen thriller than a mystery. The story ends abruptly and continues in the second book. The murderer is revealed but the details ...more

A good story, and decently written...but a lot of wasted space.

Sophomoric at best. Kept thinking of junior high school students writing their hearts out with trite similes yet great intentions.

The story was ok. The editing issues sometimes made a sentence weird. I'm not sure how there can be another book. Not a big enough cliff hanger to make me want to read the next book.
