"I heard the impact before I registered the dark silhouette skidding across the hood of the car."
This book came out quite a while ago, but I hadn't read it. Under further persuasion, from someone who shall remain unnamed, I bought a copy.
At first it was hard to get into, because the story moved a little slowly. It was the sort of thing where as soon as I got into it, I had to put the book down for a while, because a teacher would resume speaking. I think that made the book suffer when it shouldn't of had to.
However, one night I picked it up, being on chapter twenty, and finished it.
I was flipping pages, mouth open and eyes wide, racing to the finish. The book itself is fantastic. I just had to sit down and read for it register.
I adore how this book intertwines a mystery into the romance and fear. It's always lurking in the back of your mind, whispering "Is it him? It could be him." I loved how throughout the entire thing I was pointing fingers at someone, just as Nora did, but in the end it all clicked.
Overall, the book is amazing. I loved, and hated when necessary, the characters. The tension is put into focus at the right times, which made me like the novel even more. There's nothing worse than a girl who constantly whines about a boy, especially if she's being stalked by some creep in a ski mask.
Out of five stars, I give this a 4.5.
