Pretty Twisted has a good concept and Gina Blaxill expertly weaves the current events of the beginning of the story with how Jonathan ended up in the police station. The pacing is good and while Ros’s textspeak gave me a headache both central characters are teenagers through and through.

What I couldn’t get to grips with where the adults in this story. I apply that term loosely because while Jonathan’s parents were ridiculously trusting it’s the artist friends that Ros ends up with that really creeped me out. There is also inconsistency in Ros being really concerned about them while overly trusting of Jonathan.

I struggled with this story because there were a few too many instances of needing to suspend disbelief. By the end of Pretty Twisted I was left thinking that all teenagers are selfish, unconsidered and really dumb. It’s a pity because the characters undermine a story that is really promising.
