  • Shocking ending

    By ThatPsychStudent
    I promise that you will not see that ending coming. I like to guess in the beginning of the book what’s gonna happen or how it’s going to end and I was completely wrong. I personally thought that the book started off a little slow, but then once you reach the shocking part, you can’t put it down. Highly recommend for young adults!!

    This book is one of the best books I’ve read . But, that does not mean it is the best book I’ve read. Still, I would recommend anyone to read this book, as it is the book that got me into reading more and more.
