For fans of Pretty Little Liars, Little Monsters is a new psychological thriller, from the author of The Darkest Corners, about appearances versus reality and the power of manipulation amongst teenage girls.
Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister.
Kacey’s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls—she’s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.
Which is why it’s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don’t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn’t exactly feel like an accident.
But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn’t seem so welcoming after all—especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers.
Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you’re the new girl, you shouldn’t trust anyone.
Why I’m Waiting:
First of all, I’m a HUGE fan of Kara’s. I completely devoured her Prep School Confidential series. I loved the writing style, her witty and snappy characters, the plotline, the mystery and sleuthing, and the fact I literally could not put a single book down. They were all fantastic. Since I’ve been out of the reading game for a couple of years, I didn’t realize she had written another book (The Darkest Corners — I just bought it and can’t wait to start!) and so when she posted something on twitter about her newest one, Little Monsters, I just knew it was an instant pre-order from me. I didn’t even read the synopsis until after I bought a copy haha. So anyway, aside from the fact I know I’m going to like this because of who writes it alone, I can’t wait for it because hello new high school murder mystery! If anyone can write in this genre, it’s Kara and I can’t wait to figure out what happened to Bailey, what’s up with this town, and how Kacey is involved. I’m so excited!
What are you waiting for this week?
