Tell the truth. Or face the consequences.

Clue meets Riverdale in this page-turning thriller that exposes the lies five teens tell about a deadly night one year ago.

One year ago, there was a party.
At the party, someone died.
Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.

But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late.

Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago.

Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?
Or will their lies destroy them all?

Review:

One year ago, at a party in December, a series of events happened that led to the death of a teenager. Five teens had played a part in that death, but no one really knew what happened. Fast forward one year, and each of these students receive an exclusive invitation to compete for a $50,000 scholarship. After the events of last year’s party, they could each use that money for college so they all attend.

Once there, they realize they may have been a little hasty in accepting that invitation. Someone is hellbent on revenge and determined to find out the truth of what happened that night, and they will do whatever is necessary to know the entire story from start to finish.

Each of the characters were so strongly developed. I adored each persons’ chapters and being able to get into their brain to see exactly how they were feeling about the events that transpired at last year’s party, as well as the events at the revenge party. Ruby’s chapters were by far my favourite though. She was such a complex and interesting character with an insane life. No joke, I have no idea how that girl is still standing.

The writing was easily my favourite part of the book. Like I just mentioned, the characters were written beautifully. Not only that, the descriptions threw you into both the past and the present so clearly. I could picture everything as it was happening, and my god, if I never even have to think of a porcelain doll ever again, it’ll be too soon.

I was constantly on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen. While it was pretty obvious from the prologue who organized the revenge party, I was engaged all the way through wanting to know every single detail of both the past and present.

Overall, I would highly suggest picking up this book. While, yes, it is obvious who the party is organized by, I think the book is so thrilling and mysterious that it’s easy to look past that and have a wonderful reading experience.
