MY GOODREADS RATING 3.5/5 STARS
(Thanks to Netgalley & Sourcebooks Fire, I received an eARC)
Jemma knows who the murderer is. She knows because he told her.
He thought his secret was safe because Jemma can’t speak or move.
But Jemma observes all kinds of things about everyone around her. His secret is just one of them.
And when a new technology means she may be able to communicate and reveal all she knows, Jemma no longer feels powerless in the face of this deadly secret. It’s a race against time before the killer acts again…or tries to stop her.
I knew right from the synopsis that I had to read this book! It’s mysterious and intriguing, and had me dying to get my hands on it. The fact that Jemma couldn’t speak all the secrets we knew she knew had me on the edge of my seat.
The was the first book I read where the main character has cerebral palsy, and I was so happy to see that wasn’t the whole focus of the book (except the fact that she can’t speak). I love that we learn so much back story on Jemma, it really makes the story come full circle. Having the story narrated by Jemma was great, I loved hearing her thoughts on everything and how everyone just told her everything.
Overall I got just what I wanted out of this book, mystery, thrills and intrigue. Hearing all Jemma’s inside thought on all the storylines made this one a quick, interesting read. I will definitely be picking up more books by this author.
