twistedbookAbout the Book:

Maya Anderson has faced more than her share of tragedy and heartbreak. For the past six years she’s constantly been on the move with her mom. When another disaster strikes, she finds herself back in her childhood hometown of Beaumont, living with her older sister for her senior year.

A chance meeting reacquaints her with Ben McCaffey, a long-forgotten classmate from her past. After the death of his girlfriend, Ben has become a social outcast. He’s despised by some and feared by most.

Determined to become Ben’s friend, Maya begins to break through his layers of emotional protection. It isn’t long before they realize that they both have secrets in their pasts. As the line between dealing with grief and struggling with a desire for revenge begins to fade, the secrets that draw them together may be what will ultimately tear them apart. Because the closer Maya gets to Ben, the more dangerous her situation becomes.

My review:

After reading a few reviews saying how dark this book was, I was pleasantly surprised in the humor that the characters displayed. Yes, the book has some dark qualities. There is a murder and suspicious circumstances. It never gave me a melancholy feeling. In fact I think the humor and sarcasm keep the book lighter and make it flow nicely. For a YA book I think the feel of the book is very mature. It’s definitely for the older teen crowd.  I really enjoyed the story and the characters. Maya is a typical teen girl that shows a rare strength and adaptability.  Ben is the typical bad boy. If you like mysteries seasoned with a little teen angst you will like this book. :)


Author Bio:

I live in Minnesota with my two sons, two cats and our Rottweiler named Daisy.

I have been a book-addict my entire life. I have always enjoyed reading and writing stories just for fun. In 2012 I decided to try self-publishing. To my delight and dismay, my debut novel took off. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to write full-time.

If I’m not writing or spending time with my kids, I’m most likely reading.
