Keeping secrets ruined her life. But the truth might just kill her.
Piper Woods can’t wait for the purgatory of senior year to end. She skirts the fringes of high school like a pro until the morning she finds a notebook with mutilated photographs and a list of student sins. She’s sure the book is too gruesome to be true, until pretty, popular Stella dies after a sex-tape goes viral. Everyone’s sure it’s suicide, but Piper remembers Stella’s name from the book and begins to suspect something much worse.
Drowning in secrets she doesn’t want to keep, Piper’s fears are confirmed when she receives an anonymous text message daring her to make things right. All she needs to do is choose a name, the name of someone who deserves to be punished..
I got this book from the publisher for this blog tour. None of my opinions are altered by this.
I’ve seen this book around the Barnes and Noble website and I was pretty intrigued with this book. Definitely worth reading for me. It was mysterious, dramatic, and fun. The characters in this book were awesome and they were all such great additions to the book. The plot line was really well planned and well written. I think the author planned out the events in this book really well. Even if this book was short, the fact that the events in this book were really well planned, which made up for the small amount of pages.
“Then you have to figure out where it went wrong in the first place”
Wow..this book was definitely very well written and planned out very well. The events flowed perfectly into the big climatic scene and the fact that Manny was the texter just hit you. Like yeah I did kind of think that maybe the texter was Manny but that person targeted Tracey, which, like Jackson, threw us off. I’m pretty sure the notebook and the texts were supposed to be 2 different things that just happened around the same time. The notebook was basically just a book of truth and I don’t think anyone would get in too much trouble for it other than a detention because it is kind of creepy how he knows all this private information.
I think I can say I really enjoyed the plot line of this book but there was a lot going on. We got Nick, the notebook, the texter, Stella committing suicide…Let’s just say every event in this book was very important…except for the Nick parts, those parts just got me jumpy and excited. I think that characters in this book we’re also so great. Even though some of them (lol just one of them) was a complete absolute jerk. The thing that made the characters so great is that a lot of stuff wouldn’t have happened if that character wasn’t in the book. WIthout Tate, Piper would be dead. Without Manny, hah this story wouldn’t even exist. People like Piper’s friend’s would have been able to survive if they weren’t in the book. Well, not all of them, but some characters were super important.
The ending of this book was just OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG every word. Manny is the texter, Jackson literally destroys Piper, and Jackson was the one in Stella’s tape! Yeah, during the fight I was freaking out so bad and waiting for Nick to magicaly appear because I was sure Piper was dead meat. Then Tate comes along and I think “Hulluelujah!.” Then later Nick comes screaming in and its all so cute! By the end of the book Manny is gone, Jackson got shipped away to who knows where, aaaand Stella is still dead. So yeah, this book was progressive and productive…maybe.
Nick throughout this book was great man! First Piper was like “This guy is a jock and jerk, we don’t talk to him,” and now she is all smooching him up. It’s just great to see how much Nick has become more into Piper’s life than before. ALL BECAUSE HE LIKED HER. That’s all I gotta say about Nick. ‘kay thanks, bye.
At seven, Natalie D. Richards wrote about Barbara Frances Bizzlefishes (who wouldn’t dare do the dishes.) Now she writes about awesome girls, broody boys, and all things dark and creepy. Natalie lives in Ohio (Go Bucks!) with her techno-wiz husband, three amazing kids, and a seventy pound dust-mop who swears he’s the family dog. Her psychological thriller, Six Months Later, will be released in October 1, 2013 by Sourcebooks Fire. Until then, you’ll probably find her writing her next book or trying to wade through the towers of dog-eared paperbacks that have taken over her bedroom.
