This was so different from anything else I’ve read from Kelley Armstrong. Different, but good. A weekend therapy camp that was suppose to do wonders for it’s recipients, turned out to be the makings of a real life nightmare.

Not only is there no supernatural/paranormal element to this book, which is the signature in pretty much every Kelley Armstrong novel. But Armstrong takes on something that can be intimidating and hard to pull off without coming cross as ignorant or crass. Many of the characters were dealing with mental disorders, and Armstrong handled each person’s case with care, and made each one of them realistic.

As I reached the third act of the book, it completely threw me. I was not expecting the curve ball that was thrown, or how the ending turned out, and who was involved in the terror that went down Friday night. Turns out if you connect the dots from several different parties, more then one case can by solved.

Overall rating: 5/5 stars

Would I recommend: Yes, not only is it something different from Kelley Armstrong, but it’s also different from any other YA novel I’ve read. It’s talks about mental disorders, but not in a way that’s insensitive, but also how the character learn to accept, and work on ife’s everyday challenges.
