Frieda McFadden is an automatic read for me, and this one did not disappoint. At high school that was rocked by a student-teacher affair, Eve and her husband Nate both teach there. The student that was part of the alleged affair is Addie. No one likes her, she has not friends. And now she has both Nate and Eve as her English and Math teachers, respectively. Eve doesn’t trust her, doesn’t like her. But there’s more to Addie that meets the eye. She holds onto some secrets she could never reveal.

I went into this book blind. I had no idea what it was about. The book starts off with a scene that grabs your attention. McFadden books always read fast and this one was no different. I kept reading page after page and didn’t realize that I made so much progress in the book!

At different points of the book I liked certain characters and didn’t like others, and then that would change. By the end of the book, I didn’t like any of them, but I still loved the book! This book had multiple morally gray characters.

When you read a McFadden book, you expect twists and more than one. This book also had numerous twists. I felt a little icky about Nate, and I questioned him. There was a small twist that was kind of expected, but then there was a bigger twist later on. And the end twist! OMG! I didn’t see that one coming from a mile away!!! I can’t wait to discuss this book with some friends that have read it!
