Publisher's Summary

Scream meets YA in this hotly anticipated new novel from the best-selling author of Anna and the French Kiss.

One by one, the students of Osborne High are dying in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, the dark secrets among them must finally be confronted.

International best-selling author Stephanie Perkins returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that's fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to turn off.

Just okay

I'll start by saying that I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I listened to it almost every chance I got and became truly invested in what happened and to whom. The writing was beyond decent and the characters were well developed. But it was still just "okay" to me. The story itself seemed well thought out and definitely kept me guessing who it could be. But at the same time, it was a little too over-the-top. Especially when we finally find out about the main characters entire back story, I almost laughed. It just seemed way out there - like, would that particular situation really cause her to go to the extremes she had to?

I think a large part of my feeling all boils down to the narration. Though not bad by any means, Turpin's voice just didn't suit the material. And I think that would have made all the difference. At least, in my opinion. The main character came across as whiny at times and other times there was no character distinction at all. But I could've dealt with that had there been even a small modicum of suspense in her inflection. That's what was missing, I think.

All in all it was an entertaining listen. Definitely worth a credit for those who are debating.

This book will make you scream... in frustration

I picked this book up for my book club. From the description, I was hoping for something like the movie Scream. Friends are targeted by a killer we know, we follow the main character as she gets stalked / chased, then the killer reveals a secret relationship he/she has with the main character based on their past. If that's what you're hoping for, don't read this book. Mild spoilers ahead.
Main character's secret background was a huge joke. Skip the chapter and make up your own back-story. Maybe she was in juvie for beating up her ex-boyfriend. Or daughter of a convicted serial killer. Or accidentally shot one of her parents when she was a child. Whatever you imagine is going to be better than what the author picked. The victims who get picked off are unrelated to each other instead of a chain of MC's friends. The villain's identity is revealed half-way through the book, and....SURPRISE! it's some nobody. Kinda kills the mystery. Why is the villain killing people? You don't want to know; just make something up for that too. The descriptions of the deaths actually feel really out of place. The author describes carving a person's head and dismembering body parts which doesn't really match the tone of the rest of the book. The author isn't very good at building suspense that you would expect from a slasher.
I haven't heard of this author before, but I definitely got the impression she was a romance writer. The problem is I didn't find the couple particularly attractive. Ollie is a pink-haired lip-ringed "rebel" which doesn't really appeal to me. Makani doesn't know how to communicate and doesn't have much loyalty. Despite the killer being on the loose, she lies to her grandmother so she can have sex with her non-boyfriend. And did I mention the boy used police resources to get her phone number when she didn't give it to him? I don't really consider that "romantic", but your mileage may vary.

Good read

After getting to a few chapters to the end of the book I decided to read the reviews. I saw a negative one and I have to disagree with them. I have to say this book was very well written. The author did a great job keeping the reader on their toes throughout the entire book. I felt like I was always waiting for the next scream scene. It didn’t get super deep into different characters in order to keep you anticipating what was coming next. I’m really hoping she will write another book!

Terrible Book for this horror fan.

I enjoy novels involving urban legends. But expanded characters. The characters in this book were as deep as paper dolls. It may be enjoyed by very YA crowd. I doubt it though.
