Ten

SHHHH!
Don’t spread the word!
Three-day weekend. Party at White Rock House on Henry Island.
You do NOT want to miss it.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

I love this kind of book, it was fun and exciting, left me guessing who the murderer was. I also liked the that there were other small mysteries to work out as well. It was a well written book and the story progressed well.

I liked the characters, wasn’t the biggest fan of Minnie, her outbursts annoyed me. T.J. was a good character, he was kind, loyal and true to his heart.

Meg was a good main character,  she was loyal to Minnie no matter what, even if it meant her own feelings got hurt.

The killings were sometimes brutal but not overly descriptive (which I am quite glad of). It was a little odd that Meg found the victims first every time, maybe it was meant for us to think she was the killer but I never really thought she was. I had someone else in mind and I was completely wrong. I never once guessed who it actually was.

I recommend this to people who like the scream films.

4 out of 5 stars
