THANK YOU SourceBooks Fire for an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to help market your book and to also help fellow readers!
This book has an awesome idea. I wish it could be played at schools without, you know, the “too-far” that could and probably would happen.
Let me explain.
So There’s this game: KILLER or ASSASSIN.
What it is: a group of kids that are trying to figure out who the “killer” is. A group of kids are picked to participate in… a series of pranks basically. You “poison” someone by putting vinegar in their drink, or you shoot them with a water gun and they are pronounced dead.
Well, things start to get a little out of control (obviously) and start to actually hurt people instead of just embarrassing them in public.
And Cate is getting a lot of messages that could raise some eyebrows.
Could it be the childhood friend turned strange new boy that just showed up to school late? Or maybe the guy who you just friend zoned. What about the friend who has been acting weird? Or the teacher that people think you are too close with?
So, as much as I loved the concept and the book and wish I could have been apart of something so completely awesome… I didn’t really like the writing or the story itself.
I felt as if the characters acted as if they were.. just written on paper, two dimensional characters with no depth. The story was slow at first and I felt as if the main character freaked out about a lot of smaller things and then all of a sudden she had a lot of things to freak out about but then didn’t give it the amount of freaking out it deserved…
I am not sure. I am really picky with my writing styles; so this could be something that just doesn’t fit with my personality and likes. I think it could have a lot of potential for some people.
