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.

A good listen

This wasn’t a great story, but it was a very fun listen. I stayed interested in the outcome of the mystery until the very end. It wasn’t as scary or heart pounding as I’d hoped, though. It was gruesome in a cartoonish way. The writing didn’t really put me in a mental space to visualize the murder scenes as I’d hoped. It was more like watching a silly adult cartoon that ends in ridiculously overwritten butcher scenes.

I was more than a little frustrated with the main character, Mikani. I’ve never read anything by Stephanie Perkins before and know nothing about her. Thus, I do not know her background or ethnicity. I do not know if she’s ever written a black character before. Mikani, who was biracial (black and Asian), read like a stereotypical white teenage girl in a slasher movie. It’s only mentioned a few times that she’s “different” and never explained why her grandmother, a black retired teacher, lives in an all white town. They were basically white characters with brown skin. That was disappointing. Not that I think the writer should’ve made Mikani or her grandmother stereotypes of the black community, I don’t. I do, however, think that Ms. Perkins believes that the only thing that makes black and white people different is their hair. The story doesn’t recognize cultural differences at all. It’s as if race doesn’t exist in this small Nebraska town.

The body count was high. The final scene was done very well. An epilogue would’ve been good, but all in all the story was good.

The narration was okay, not great. All of the male characters sounded alike, and all of the female characters sounded alike. The tag lines were the only way that the listener/reader knew who was speaking. It was sometimes confusing. This was not Bahni Turpin’s best.

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!

Snooze Fest

Have you ever wanted to like something more than you did? That’s how I felt about this book. I absolutely loved the idea — YA Slasher Novel. How cool is that!? It’s like SCREAM. But in the end, the story was not what I expected. It was scary, wasn’t really thrilling, and I felt like the killer reveal was the most lack-luster reveal I ever did read. We find out who the killer is 1-2 hours before the audiobook ends and the reason for his killing was definitely YA-like. I just didn’t think it was imaginative. I think it’s because I grew up with slasher movies and loving the theatricality of them. I have never really read a slasher book, so I expected deeper content and more significant storytelling (I Know What You Did Last Summer wasn’t at all like the movie, so that doesn’t count)—I just felt like the writing was a novelization of a 1999 PG-13 movie that bombed at the box office.

couldn't be saved by a good narrator

I love Bahni Turpin but this book was so bad. So generic and poorly thought out.

I was expecting more twists, but it wasn't bad! The narrator did an excellent job with all of the voices.

Wrong audience

I was a bit hasty picking this one out. It wasnt bad by any means, but I definitely wasnt the intended audience. While it is a slasher, it is also very much a YA horror with more love story involved than suspense. Decent story overall, but not my cup of tea 🤷‍♂️
