Lemme start this review off with THE BIGGEST TRIGGER WARNING EVER ⚠️ ⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️

If you or a loved one has considered or completed suicide, DO NOT read this book. Really. Like, not even the first chapter. It’s not a light TW, this is a full-throated TW. Just don’t.

That being said, if suicide is not a trigger for you... this book is horrifyingly good. How shall I describe it?

At the very beginning, It’s like a thriller from the POV of the bad guy. Which is AWESOME.

And then it turns into a tale of revenge— and how it destroys the lives of all who seek it. Which is GREAT.

And then it turns into a Gone Girl-style shitshow. Which YOU KNOW I love.

And the best part? You’ll be thinking about it forEVER after you finish it. I know I am. So yeah. 5 stars, and probably one of my favorites of 2017.

But again, I cannot stress this enough, if suicide or suicidal ideation is in your history (or your present), PLEASE pass this one by. It is too triggery to be trifled with.

5 stars.

Audrey Really great review! Clear and to the point :)


Karen Medrano-rios I TOTALLY agree! It was an awesome page turner but definitely gruesome and uncomfortable. "Gone Girl style shitshow" is the PERFECT description! 😂
