Are you good at keeping secrets?⁣

"All teenagers have secrets. Some secrets are bigger than others."⁣

Locust Lane pulls you in from the very first page and doesn’t let go until the very last. I had no idea what direction it was going in or who to trust - and a surprise twist at the end threw all my suspicions off.⁣

When a young woman is found dead in an affluent town, we cycle through the thoughts, the lies, and the mystery of what happened through several characters - each a parent. Each with something to hide. Someone to protect. Was it the good kid - son of an immigrant; the rich kid - a child of affluence and privilege; or the girlfriend - emotional and sheltered.⁣

The story felt so very authentic and real as you wade through everyone’s thoughts and fears, and was so full of subtle tension that it was easy to be pulled in all the emotional directions as everything unfolded in the most unexpected of ways.⁣
