Sixteen-year-old Lena Martin's idyllic world shatters the night her mother dies due to a hit and run accident. Two years later, her dad relocates her from Italy to Los Angeles to help her put behind the time spent in a psychiatric ward following her mother's death. But the move only proves to be a fatal mistake. Shortly after her arrival, the classmates of her new private school begin to commit suicide under mysterious circumstances after reading a cult book called Cut Here.
Determined to unravel the mystery behind the suicides, she bands together with loner Jonathan Russe and outcast Hope Peters to figure out exactly what is happening, not realizing that this places them under a dangerous radar. During this same time, Lena falls for a mysterious and attractive guy named Michael, who is as equally disarming as he's dangerous.
As her attraction grows, so does the body count at St. Lucy Academy. Soon, Lena needs to decide whether to stay away from the guy she's falling for, or to trust him. Is Michael behind the suicides, or is he the key that can unlock the mystery that can stop the bloodshed? Deceptions run high and Lena soon learns that nothing is what it seems.
My Review: So I love the cover of the book, so pretty. Then the blurb got made me wanna read it. The actually story was amazing!
Lena has had a tough time. Her mom died and she spent some time in a psyc ward. So her dad thinks a change of scenery should do the trick. Well that so wasn't the case. Move from one country to another is tough, being in a strange place is tough, starting a new school and making friends is tough. But the toughest thing will be seeing all these kids around Lena die. It can make or break her.
So Lena has the strength to tame up with John and figure out why the kids die after reading the Cut Here book. Danger is about to be everywhere, and a new guy is about to show up. Just add this to the list of things Lena has to deal with.
Lena has to learn who is trustworthy, the key to ending all the suicides, and if she should peruse Micheal. Yup, Lena left for a better scene and moves into all this... But I loved her strength through it all. I loved the use of details in this book. The author is going to be on my to follow list and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
