I did it all for you…

Cara’s boyfriend is dead.

When fingers start pointing at her, she knows she’s in more trouble than she originally thought. Because Cara can see that something isn’t right.

As her carefully constructed life begins to crumble, Cara isn’t sure who she is anymore.

But maybe that’s exactly what someone wants her to think…

Lisa’s Review: I received a copy of this book by the author via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. 

Cara is having one heck of a summer. Her boyfriend dies, she a suspect in a murder investigation, she loses her best friends, she finds out her family has lied to her for years, she finds love and she pulled into a maniacs web. This is a lot to take in for just one summer. 

The main character, Cara, is easy to relate to. Cara is trying to find herself throughout the book. First, who she thought she wanted to be and then, who she actually is. Cara goes through so much turmoil due to all of the things that happen around her but she learns from each of these situations. I like how she progressed from someone who seemed fake to someone real. 

I liked the mystery within this book and although I had inkling of who was behind the conflict I was surprised when it all revealed itself. I wasn’t suspecting who it was. It definitely made me empathize with Elyse. I would really like to know more of her story. 

Overall, the pacing was good and kept my attention. The descriptions of the surroundings were good which made it to visualize things. 

I highly recommend this book if you like young adult mysteries.
