Post your thoughts on This is How it Ends by Eva Dolan here!

Ella Riordan is a community activist who became famous when she was beaten by police during a social protest. Now Ella is a squatter in a building where the owners are evicting tenants so they can convert it into luxury condos, and she’s determined to stay and defend the few holdout tenants, despite death threats.

One night after a rooftop party with her fellow holdouts, Ella finds a horrible scene awaiting her in her apartment. In a panic, she calls her neighbor Molly, who convinces her that the police won’t believe she’s innocent. Together the two women concoct a gruesome plan to hide the body down the building’s elevator shaft.

But the secret won’t stay buried for long. As truth hangs in the balance, a neighbor tells Molly he had heard Ella arguing with a man in the hallway and mistrust grows between Ella and Molly, as repercussions of that night threaten to change both women’s lives forever.

I wasn't sure about this book when I first started it. I found that it was hard to keep track of what was happening because the book is told by two different people, and jumps around from the present to the past a lot. I'm about halfway through, and very interested to see where it goes. I have a lot of questions and no answers! Number one is...who is the dead guy?

I finished this book today and wow, did it get crazy. I found out who the dead guy was (NOT who I was expecting). I did not see ANY of the plot twists coming and they were very fun to read. I really like how the author chose to reveal information to us in little bits at a time. The one thing I'm not sure whether I liked was (view spoiler)
