    Pulls you in

    I enjoyed reading this book. This was one of those books that pulled me into the story pretty quickly. I knew that things would go horribly wrong but I just couldn't look away. I had to know exactly what happened and I wanted Hattie to tell me. The way that the story unfolded really added to the story. This is a book that I am very glad that I decided to pick up. One of the first things that struck me about this book was the fact that it is told in a nonlinear manner. I am not usually a fan of this method of story telling and I have to say that I was rather disappointed to see that this book was told in such a manner. It worked wonderfully in this story. It wasn't hard to keep track of where the story was in time and having the characters tell their story as it was taking place was really powerful. This book is told from three points of view. Del is the sheriff of a small town who is working to solve a murder. Hattie is a senior in high school who dreams of leaving the small town she has lived her life in to move to New York. Peter is the school's new English teacher who has just moved to town. All three of these characters play an important part of unraveling what really happened to Hattie. I liked the characters even though I am not sure why I do with the exception of Del. Del is a likeable guy who is in a bad place. He needs to solve Hattie's murder but is getting a lot of pressure from everyone in town not to mention that Hattie's father is one of his best friends. Hattie is kind of hard to like at first. She is manipulative and seems to think she is better than others in her town. I liked her anyway especially as the book progressed. Peter seemed lost throughout a lot of the book. He is never sure what he wants to do and feels guilty with a lot of his choices. I thought Peter felt really authentic and I liked him even when I wanted to throw things at him. I would recommend this book to others. It tells a story that kept me guessing up until the very end. This is the first book by Mindy Mejia that I have had a chance to read but I plan to look for her work in the future. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Atria Books via NetGalley.

    Whatever You want me to be

    Wow! What an excellent read. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Well written. Huge characters. Hard to believe one mind came up with all these characters that were so different and convincing. Excellent story idea with lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing but no loose ends left in the finale. A great read. I thought this was better than,The Girl On the Train, which was a great book as well. Like that book, you will feel like you are in the setting, as it is so well described. The author is from Minnesota and when you're reading it you feel like you are too. If you were a fan of The Girl On the Train or psychological thrillers in general, I really think you'll like this. Highly recommended.

    Best Thriller EVER!

    Incredible! I love this book, only reason I have put it down is to sleep. I love the characters, the pace, the alternate perspectives and twists. This is the best thriller I have ever read! At first I thought the way the story moves back and forth in time would be confusing but it just adds to the suspense.
