What happened to Shaila and what’s going to happen to Jill? Those are the two main questions that are swirling around in my thoughts after reading this except from They Wish They Were Us. The players are a group of privileged seniors at Gold Coast school, a somewhat secret society who have access to SATs and quizzes while also being the envy of the school. Eight is now Six as two members are entangled in a Homicide one the victim and the other a murderer. Not all is what it seems though and as you read through the book you slowly start to piece together the players as well as the game. The book really hooks you from the prologue, feeling intense and curious. I did have trouble trying to figure out what was a flashback and what was the present and the narrator seems extremely unreliable but I still enjoyed it.
