Sarah Weaver wasn't looking forward to starting at an all-girls school. But that was before she met Maddy. Maddy and her best friend, Agnes, are fun and rich and interesting-and for some reason, they seem to really like Sarah. Before long, Maddy and Agnes have moved Sarah into a big house off campus, where they cook together, buy each other presents, and share each other's secrets. So why does Sarah feel like something's bizarrely wrong? As more and more cracks start to show in Maddy's and Agnes's perfect veneers, Sarah notices some strange and disturbing things: Maddy's compulsive lying, Agnes's obsession with Maddy, and the deterioration of their friendship. And just when Sarah begins to question her own sanity, things turns deadly. Fans of Pretty Little Liars will devour this juicy debut novel.

For a YA book it was surprisingly gritty and unexpected.
The book was promoted as being similar to Pll.
But it’s not.
It’s so much better.
The summary doesn’t really give out much and that was perfect because I devoured the book hungrily. I couldn’t put it down till I finished it. And even when I did it left me breathless and I couldn’t really disconnect from it immediately.
It had taken over my mind entirely.
It was such an intense book.
And so realistic and believable.
It kept me on my edge and sent a myriad of emotions flowing through me.
The protagonist and the other two main characters were so heavily flawed it was ridiculous and pleasing at the same time. I could identify with some of the creepiest thing.
Everyone in this book is so wrecked, so wrong, so manipulative
I do believe that the nicest people are slightly mentally unhinged. And we all have some evil in us.
Possessive BFF’s is something I have experienced so I could totally get that plotline.
This book left me with the similar feeling I get after watching psychological thrillers.
This book is vicious.
And it’s a must read.
Sometimes I am left furious that books like these don’t become bestsellers but every book about a girl falling in love with a vampire/fallen angel and what not which has no particular plot becomes a outright favourite and sells like hot cakes.
It’s sad really.
Suspenseful and eerie, this is easily one of my top favourite books of the year.
Lastly, because I can NOT praise it enough I would say it was a Mind-blowing read. I still feel shocked and disturbed.
I want, no I NEED more books from Katherine Easer.
