GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:  

It’s been five years since Summer Marks was brutally murdered in the woods. 

Everyone thinks Mia and Brynn killed their best friend. That driven by their obsession with a novel called The Way into Lovelorn the three girls had imagined themselves into the magical world where their fantasies became twisted, even deadly.

The only thing is: they didn’t do it. 

On the anniversary of Summer’s death, a seemingly insignificant discovery resurrects the mystery and pulls Mia and Brynn back together once again. But as the lines begin to blur between past and present and fiction and reality, the girls must confront what really happened in the woods all those years ago—no matter how monstrous.

 

MY THOUGHTS:

I love a book with a mysterious plot and this one was absolutely hitting the spot for a great fall read. I feel like this was loosely based on a true story the became national news many years ago, but definitely had its own spin. This one would make a great movie, I would absolutely love a creepy story like this coming to life on the big screen.

It was such a unique thing, these girls being accused of this horrific crime that they ultimately didn’t commit. The other characters that were brought in throughout the book really made you question them, but trust them at the same time, which was usual for me. Mia and Brynn both had qualities that were just annoying to me in general, but I could see how it made for a better story.

I highly recommend this book if you are into mysterious who done it type of books. You know there is a guilty person or persons the whole time but you spend so much time trying to figure things out it kind of hits you in the face at the end. I love that everything gets fully wrapped up and that it’s a stand-alone.
