Author: Alyson Noel
Publication Date: April 4, 2017
Genre: Young Adult/Mystery
Recommended If You Like: young adult mysteries, books about secrets, behind-the-scenes looks at celebrity culture
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.
Picking up where the first book in the series left off, there is a presumed murder to solve, a celebrity's past to unlock, and a friend who needs their innocence proven.
What I Liked:
This is such a fun, well-done young adult mystery series. I really like that Noel manages to keep the momentum from the first book going without losing steam, and while continuing the mystery in a way that makes sense and flows well.
The characters are complex, and their relationships are compelling. I especially enjoy how well Noel has kept characters that could have been so one-dimensional so human instead.
Anything I Didn't Like?
There really isn't anything not to like about this series. It reminds me of Pretty Little Liars back in its heyday when the books were still full of strong mysteries and unique characters. I would have liked to have more of the mystery solved, but that's just because the mystery is so good that I want to know more as soon as possible.
I definitely recommend this series. They are quick, fun reads that will suck you in and leave you wanting to read more.
