Ivy, Mateo and Cal used to be close – best friends back in middle school.
Now all they have in common is a bad day. So for old times sake they skip school together – one last time.
But when the trio spot Brian ‘Boney’ Mahoney ditching class too, they follow him – right into a murder scene.
They all have a connection to the victim. And they’re ALL hiding something.
When their day of freedom turns deadly, it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out…
Firstly i would like to thank Netgalley, The Write Reads and the publisher – for my spot on this AWESOME Blog Tour along with my copy of the Ebook in exchange for my honest review.
I have read all of Karen’s work, in fact i think it was her debut ‘One of us is lying’ which was my first ever YA book and lets just say i have been hooked ever since.
Her newest addition ‘You’ll be the death of me’ was incredible. It was fast and pacey throughout with some AMAZING characters and it will no doubt keep you guessing until the very end. Well it did with me anyway.
The three main characters are all Students and honest some super little humans. I loved each and every one of them in their own way – mainly because i could probably connect with each of them on some level or other.
Ivy – She seemed very much like a goody-two-shoes in the beginning – but soon enough her character evolved into a fiesty little so and so who wanted, no, NEEDED to solve any situation out she found herself in.
Cal – From the start he seemed like such a sensitive and gentle guy. Cute, he did remind me of myself a little, being a little bit of a loner but he is also very much a dark horse and nothing shocked me more than finding out who his secret girl was.
Mateo – My favourite character – i think because he has this pasona that oozes from him like a bad boy but at heart he really isnt and he just has a heart of gold.
The rest of the characters in this book were equally well written and exhubarent. Especially Lara – i felt like i wanted to like her, i did like her. Her closeness to someone she shouldnt be didnt affect me, i didnt judge. It happens A LOT. More than we are all probably aware but what did it for me, was the ending when everything came together. Not only did i get a SHOCK factor at finding out who was behind everything but how Lara reacted, sickened me. So much.
This latest book was an AMAZING addition to the rest of the books Karen has written and i would definitely recommend this to any love of YA, or Thriller books. This definitely keeps you on your toes and keeps you guessing.
