Book Summary:

Rachel lands her dream summer job at a luxurious Tuscan villa. She’s quickly drawn into a new group of rich and beautiful sophisticates and their world of partying, toxic relationships, and even more toxic substances. They’ve never faced consequences, are used to getting everything. But then someone goes too far. Someone dies. And nothing will ever be the same.

Lizzy Barber’s debut A Girl Named Anna won the Daily Mail First Novel Competition. In her newest and even more unputdownable work, she weaves a clever and deadly web of manipulation and desire. A summer thriller rife with back-stabbing, bed-hopping, and murder, Out of Her Depth is a perfect escapist read for fans of Euphoria, J.T. Ellison’s Her Dark Lies, or Rachel Hawkins’s Reckless Girls.

My Review

I’ve found I can read a novel where I do not like any of the characters, but really want to know what happened.  I was drawn in by Sebastian being let out of jail after 20 years, but not knowing why he was there.  I am not sure if it was meant to be fashioned after the Amanda Knox story, but that was the vibes I had when reading.  I also had a little mean girls vibes.

Told in the past and present via Rachel.  The past was a summer she spent in Tuscany with Rachel and Sebastian.  A little coming of age and a little toxic friendship.  While the present is now as Sebastian is getting out of jail and Rachel is trying to contact her friend Diana and seems concerned about what will happen with Sebastian.

The ending was definitely unique and a little odd.  I suspected we were heading there, but not quite in that way.  This is for you if you like a slow burn psychological thriller with a mean girls vibe.
