Well, once again we have a very cryptic blurb for this book, and once again this book is full of mystery, and lies upon lies are uncovered.
I’m not going to tell you too much about this book, because not knowing what is going to happen is part of the fun, but once again poor Rain is in for a rough ride.
In book 1 (Justice), Rain’s life was turned absolutely upside down and back to front by a prank played on her by a girl at her new school, and now, on top of all the drama still going on surrounding that event, Rain has a murder to solve.
A girl at her new school was strangled to death, and Rain’s only friend – River, has been accused of her murder and locked up in jail. Rain knows that River could never hurt someone like that, no matter what other people are saying about him, and she knows that any evidence they have is fake. What she doesn’t realise is how tightly interwoven her own life and the dead girl’s are.
Once again, Rain’s life is further shattered by lies told by those older than her, and this time she’s worked out one hell of a complicated family tree, connecting several teens at her school. The question still remains though; who had the means and will to murder one of her classmates? And what were they trying to hide?
I really enjoyed this book. I picked this one up straight after finishing the first one,’ cause I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next! This book picked up pretty much where the last one left off, but this time we had more than one mystery to solve, and once again, layers and layers of deceit. It’s difficult to say much without giving too much away, but this book is just so cryptic, and has such a complex storyline, the mind boggles.
I love Rain, she has such a fresh, clear voice, and you can totally image her saying and doing the things she does. She’s also incredibly normal, even when she feels guilt for telling white lies.
I have to say that the ending left me wanting more! It was a bit cryptic – Rain knows who the murderer is and how they covered it up, but she doesn’t actually tell us! Thanksfully though, there is more to come, and I am really looking forward to the next book – ‘Death’.
