As Abi tries to keep up with the demands of her fickle friends, strange things start to happen – precious letters go missing and threatening messages are left in her room. Is this the work of the beautiful and capricious Bea? Or is Abi willing to go to any lengths to get attention?

the sisters

I haven't yet read it but it sounds intriguing! it sounds mysterious and i absolutely love it (keep in mind, i haven't yet read it!)!! I am in the mood for a good thriller and this seems to just hit the spot. I'm hoping all the masterpiece is on the front and the rest is bad, but I'm going to take a leap of faith and go for it (not much of a leap of faith, though!). If you have read it please write a description… but no SPOILERS! I just can't wait to read it!

Pedestrian, obvious, uninspired.

I want my time back.

A big letdown

I thought this was going to be a great read but instead it was slow going & the end was disappointing, sick & weird. A waste of time sadly
