    She'll get under your skin...

    We know who the killer is, that's SO not the drive of this book, it's the WHY and will she strike again and get away with it? Hayley is a dark and disturbing character, who manipulates all those around her. She gets under your skin. The writer's absolute skill is when you find yourself drawn into Hayley's mind and feel sympathy for her - it's unsettling and sometimes uncomfortable. Gee's writing style is understated - which is absolutely perfect for the character's motivations and her voice. The 80s world building is spot on. Immerse yourself, be disturbed, but be warned, Hayley will stay with you long after the last page.

    Gosh I really hate having to give negative reviews but this book was unbearably bad. The cover, however, is gorgeous and includes the blurb "She was my best friend. So why did I kill her?", only that's not entirely true. The murderer, Haley, introduces her victim, Kirsten, as her best friend and then a few pages later she introduces Leila, whom she's known most of her life, as her best friend. This is just one example of the glaring inconsistencies in this story. Haley and her victim go to college together where Leila is ruthlessly bullied. Yes, I said bullied. In college. On the day of her murder she is tormented by girls making fun of the fact that her period has spotted her tights. Really? In college? They apparently have principals in college and they call your mom if you're absent, too. I knew at that point this book was going to drive me to new depths of frustration. All of the college kids in this book read more like cliché 8th graders from a really bad YA novel. The murder and subsequent storyline is so implausible and poorly developed I thought my eyes were going to stay permanently rolled up into my skull. Even the writing style is juvenile, reading more like a middle school creative writing assignment. That's all I've got. This book has exhausted me. I was provided an ARC of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
