First Line: Hell is a two hour layover in Atlanta
The Darkest Corners is a great thrilling roller coaster ride. You have no clue where this book is going and what is going to happen next. The only thing you do know is The Monster is back and the police are not looking for him. It is up to Tessa, Callie and a small group of friends to solve this mystery. The will be putting themselves out there and in danger but that isn’t the only mystery to solve. Tessa finds out her family has a few skeletons in the closet that some will do anything to make sure they stay there. The Darkest Corners was so good I flew through this book and while I figured out part of 1 mystery the others I didn’t figure out till they were revealed to the reader. I loved that about this book, I usually figure this stuff out. The characters were all very well developed and likable. Tessa and Callie are two girls who use to be best friends till they had an event happen that shattered the innocence of childhood and they each dealt with it in different way. However when they are thrown together again the bonds of their friendship and the event prove that it was unbreakable and they are in this thing together. The plot was so good and I loved that there was mysteries within The Monster mystery. I could really see this being a movie and man would it be good. Add The Darkest Corners to your summer reading list and your teen’s summer reading list. I really hope Kara Thomas writes more thrilling mysteries like this one. I enjoyed this one and will be checking out her Prep School Confidential Series. Callie and a small group of friends to figure out who he is before one of them is the next target.
summary: There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened there that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them.
Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the faces of her demons—and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good.
Tessa and Callie have never talked about what they saw that night. After the trial, Callie drifted and Tessa moved, and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.
But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette—to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.
Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer—and this time, it won’t be so easy to run away.
