Publisher's Summary

For fans of Pretty Little Liars, Little Monsters is a new psychological thriller from the author of The Darkest Corners, about appearances versus reality and the power of manipulation among teenage girls.

Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and, strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister.

Kacey's new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls - she's even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.

Which is why it's so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don't invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn't exactly feel like an accident.

But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly Broken Falls doesn't seem so welcoming after all - especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers.

Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you're the new girl, you shouldn't trust anyone.

Superb!

I'm am pleasantly surprised this was so good! I finished it in like 36 hours. I really recommend it! You grow to know the characters, and think you know who is the killer but then it all goes back to square one! For such young characters, it was really entertaining to me and I don't read a lot of YA!

Excellent Book That Lives Up to the Hype!

This is a book that could easily be compared to Gone Girl, and it lives up to the praise. This was a wonderful novel with plenty of twists, right up to the very end. I loved it because I did not try and over think and enjoyed the ride. It surprised me due to the fact that I was still guessing until the last minute. This is an author I will read again!

This is a great read for Gone Girl fans, fans of PLL, or just a good, twisted tale.

The narrator did an outstanding job and really made the characters distinctive and separate. The characters came to life due to her talents.

Favorite audio in a long time. Highly recommend.

Keeps You Guessing the Whole Time!

I really enjoyed this book! I finished it really quickly, even cutting into my sleep time because I wanted to know what happened! For once I did not guess correctly or know the possible outcome of the story. Usually I can see where the plot is going, but right when I think I have it all figured out, the author adds in something else and I'm second guessing myself and have to think about it all over again. The narrators were a great part of this story and flowed together perfectly, at first I couldn't even tell that there were two narrators. This book was well worth the credit I used, and I hope to read/listen to more from this author in the future.

That Plot Twist Though...(No Spoilers)

First and foremost, that twist ending had my jaw on the floor. This author knows how to keep you guessing the whole way through.

I don’t want to say much more, other than you need this book in your life! ...and the narrators did a stunning job. Loved it.

Teenage Thriller/Whodunit

Was pleasantly surprised. As the author lays the groundwork I did find myself pointing at several different people as the suspect so it was good at keeping you guessing. The ending was not what I was expecting. Would recommend if you like a good YA thriller. “AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY"

It’s a solid book if you like Pretty Little Liars

I liked the plot and how current the timing of the story is.
It was short and sweet, like I said in the title, if you liked the show Pretty Little Liars, you’ll like this book.

Gripping!

Was guessing a lot! Eventually figured it out but it definitely had a few tricks up its sleeve, good performances too!
