This is definitely one of my favorite books I have read this year. Ella is bullied and locked into a closet by teens who have tormented her for years. It releases something horrifying that Ella has to deal with while recovering from the trauma of what happened. Luckily, Ella has the support of her mother, a school nurse, and her BFF Kyla.
Things get much worse when Ella wakes up covered with bloody sheets and a metal object covered in blood but that is not the worst. One of her tormentors has been found dead. What follows is a harrowing account of the real and surreal. Is all this happening? Or is it all a figment of Ella disturbed mind?
I do not want to give any spoilers away but I was literally blown away with this book. It is obvious that Toni Vallan has studied the human mind and she blends this knowledge into a psychological thriller that does not let up. I stayed up late finishing the book and was stunned by the twist ending. This is a book not to miss. I want to thank the publishers for taking a chance on me reading the book so late on a deadline through Netgalley for free in exchange for an honest review.
