What they say: When Hugh Henry Van Boren, one of the most popular and richest kids in Jess Choudhary’s school, is found dead, the student body is left reeling and wondering who the murderer could be… Jess, a student under strict instructions to keep her record clean or risk losing her scholarship, finds herself at the centre of the investigation when it’s revealed that Hugh died in the exact same way as a character in a short story she wrote.
And then Jess receives an anonymous text thanking her for the inspiration.
With time running out, Jess knows if she doesn’t solve this mystery she’ll finally have something in common with Hugh Henry.
I am truly loving ya thrillers at the moment! This is the story of Jess, who begins this book by telling us who the murderer of ever popular, very rich Hugh, is, only it was never going to be that easy, was it? We follow a huge rage of people in a very rich boarding school where Jess is a scholarship student, and are sent all around as we try to figure out who the murderer is, as other murders happen and tick other people off the list! There’s a nice touch that you can scan a code near the end of the book and play detective. Of course this caught me unaware and being sick in bed without a phone I couldn’t do this but I did guess the killer. (I lie, the killer was in my head at one point then I discounted them lol!!) With threatening text messages and notes adding to the attempts to throw us off, and the dodgiest school illuminati type set-up-I was so invested and am definitely recommending!
Very enjoyable. Thanks so much for the book in return for an honest review.
