What You Never Knew by Jessica Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
An incredible debut, this book is a superb piece of nostalgia that transported me to my own childhood summer. Unfortunately, that was where most of the similarities ended because I would love to have my own family mystery to unravel. The back and forth between the two sisters’ point-of-view, in addition to the paranormal aspect, gave this book a fun twist that I hadn’t expected nor seen since reading The Lovely Bones.
With innumerable moments of nail-biting suspense, it was difficult to put this book down. Character’s and their dialogue are so expertly crafted, you come to love or hate them with an abrupt intensity.
The best part of this book was that you never knew what was going to happen, despite your best theories, and it was refreshingly unconventional in its conclusion.
Thanks to NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for the advanced copy. The opinions are my own.
