Well, this was a letdown. I was really excited for this one but it was rather strange. I think it was supposed to be scary but it was more so just sadistically weird and rather gruesome, especially for a YA, so it seemed odd.
Makani has moved from Hawaii to small town Nebraska and is hiding a dark secret. High school students are individually being murdered in gruesome ways, and as the body count gets higher, Makani fears for what might happen if her past is found out.
It was pretty gruesome but it wasn’t a frightening thriller which is what I prefer, suspense and thrill over gore. I did like the relationships between Makani, Ollie, and her friends and the revelation of the killer was interesting but I felt the overall ending and book as a whole fell flat for me.
