This book. 

I have been dying to get my hands on this book for over five years. I finally did. 

Was I satisfied? Yes. I managed to finish the entire book within two hours. One reason being was that the book kept me on my toes throughout, and another reason being I haven’t read a fictional book in at least 2 years. I was book hungry. 

This book is narrated mainly by three people: Rachel, Megan, and Anne. Rachel is the main character and has “drinking issues.” Once she drinks, she doesn’t remember what she does. The whole story revolves around one specific Saturday night and a confused Rachel trying to piece together the happenings of that night. The book maintained the suspense well, and to be honest, even I was confused at one point. I didn’t know the killer. Until I read the whole book. So, I will stop here and not spoil the book further.

All in all, I loved the book. If you are interested, then do give it a go!
