Once Upon A Book – Charlee Rae's Book Reviews

"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"

The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas


I rated this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Tessa and Callie never talk about what they saw one summer night back when they were childhood friends. Tessa moved away when she was nine, Callie still lives there. Callie tries to make the ghosts of that evening disappear by partying hard. Tessa can’t stop thinking about it because things never quite added up. It haunts her. Now she’s going back and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she gets to the killer. This time she won’t be able to run away.

I received this book as part of a First Reads Goodreads giveaway.

The Darkest Corner is a young adult psychological thriller. An intense and well written book, it is what you would call a slow read. Even with that said, the story really grabs you right from the beginning. The characters were so realistic and relatable that you found yourself falling into the story. You could feel their emotions through the pages. As the story progressed and moved towards the ending, family secrets started making themselves known. The more that came out, the more intriguing the story became. I really had a hard time putting this one down. I definitely would seek out more books by this author.
