I read almost every genre & I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. As a library volunteer, I'm constantly bringing home novels. Being a substitute teacher, I read lots of YA & children's books.
So, what exactly is a final girl? A final girl is the last woman standing at the end of the horror show but these ladies where the only individuals who walked out alive from three separate multiple homicides that gripped the nation. They were Lisa, Samantha and Quincy. Beautiful women who endured while others around them perished. They had each survived an unspeakable nightmare, each of them now carrying their own story, a story that made them all survivors yet they were victims too. Together they were united, a common bond held them together and there was hope of getting these women together so they could talk and share with each other, but it never materialized. When the news of Lisa’s death comes, they were told it was suicide. The press is hot on this news and they do not back down. She was first Final Girl and it was thought that she had come to grips with her past. The girl’s detailed accounts of their experiences are each relived and I feel what they each encountered years ago. There are twists and turns as their stories are rekindled, as no stone is left unturned. There is a mystery to be solved and somewhere in the past, the answer could be buried there.
Thank you NetGalley and Penguin Group Dutton for providing a copy of this novel to me in exchange for a honest review.
