alone not alone

Review :

4.5 stars

Now that I have read all three books written by this duo of authors, I have to say they are at the top of my list of favorite writing teams. This was one of those good popcorn eating type reads in which you know the main character is probably in danger but you aren't entirely sure what is going to happen and it is pretty fun watching it all unfold.

Normally, I try to give a brief synopsis in my reviews but I really think you are best off not knowing too much ahead of time. Shay is the main character and you could say her life is a bit messy at the moment and it's about to get worse. You see she is about to meet the Moore sisters and well things are going to get crazy.

In order for the plot to really work in my opinion you do need a good lead character and Shay was an ideal pick to help drive the story. You feel for her and it's not difficult to understand why she just wants to fit in somewhere. The story alternates between Shay's perspective as well as some of the other characters including the sisters and I thought it was an effective way of storytelling.

The first half was slightly better than the second half and I think it is because there is more uncertainty about where the story is going. The authors have shown they can get pretty creative in their storytelling and it was exciting to read the earlier chapters in the book as it felt like the possibilities were endless. I'm not saying the action slows down in the second half, but I feel like that anticipation feeling you have as a reader was lessened just a tad. Overall though I had a real good time reading this one.

If you have read and enjoyed other books by the authors this one is a must-read.

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review!
