Read this book. It is not what I expected at all and literally threw me off a cliff when all the pieces came together. Lockhart puts you on a rollercoaster with this one. In order to understand you need to read it. The names and everything may seem overwhelming at first but truly worth it. They’re not even that important if you don’t want them to be. Just read this. The end will leave you reeling.

Just ok. Reading some reviews I expected more.... but it’s just ok.

I read this entire book in one sitting. Other reviews are not exaggerating when they say how well this was written and the inability to put the book down!

It is so amazing I loved it it made me laugh, cry, it is soo good you have to read this book.

i loved how intriguing this book was. i couldnt put it down and finished in one night. definitely recommend!

Best book ever, major plot twist.

Amazing book !! The ending was such a twist and I bawled like a baby!

Such an interesting book that was impossible for me to put down! Definitely recommend.

This is my favorite book that I have ever read. I had a very very strong emotional connection to this book. Even though I sobbed so extremely hard in the end of the book, it was an amazing experience and adventure I had in my mind. It’s such an amazing book and I can’t wait to read more from this author!

This book was one of the very very few school assigned books that I actually really enjoyed. Extremely well written. You form a connection with the characters in this story and can envision everything to a T, as if you are right there.

I tried hard to figure out the twist in this book as i read along. i would have never guessed what happened. this book is full of emotion and i really enjoyed the read.

I found myself getting detached from reality whilst reading this book, the plot twist was disturbing and intriguing all the same. Overall an amazing read.

Kept me intrigued! Good quick read !

Took me countless recommendations to finally cave & read this book ... my only regret is not having read it sooner. Absolutely beautiful & heartbreaking at the same time. Had my shocked and left in tears. A must-read 100%. Will forever recommend it.

Kinda boring till the end. Shocking end makes the book.

Heard about this book for a while and finally found the time to pick it up. Astonishing in its writing, it makes you think and re-read pages just to feel something. Really goes into depth about how we deal with pain and trauma and how even if people have everything they can also have nothing. I encourage everyone to read this and really dive into its meaning.

Would highly recommend

Don’t give up on this book if the beginning is slow. It gets wayyy better.

I generally get bored easily of reading, but I read this book so quickly. Such an intriguing book that’ll keep you reading and reading. This is one of my favorite books ever. Such an unexpected twist at the end. Would definitely reccomend :)

Great ending. If I didn’t read this on my phone I would have thrown it.

Ok so didn’t what as title but yeah this book is one of my favs but it will differently make u cry for the last 30 pages I think but yeahs a great plot twist embrace yourself for that!!!💞

I loved everything about this book. I loved the characters, the plot twist, the writing style had me in tears at the end. The last few chapters were very emotional for me. I highly recommend this book to everyone.


this book was good! i did end up guessing (correctly) what happens at the end of the book within reading the first few chapters, but it didn’t stop me from getting a little teary eyed. i read it in one day. not that long of a book - i recommend to teens!

I loved this book soooo much!💕I’m usually not that into reading but I read this book in just 4 days because I was soooo addicted😂This book is great for younger viewers like myself cause I’m 14 and I would definitely recommend this book to any teen or tween. The book was so well written there was never a moment where I got bored😋so if your a young adult that wants a new book to read or get back into reading I definitely recommend this one😁💗

the book had an ending I didn’t see coming! Definitely recommend!

I’m a huge fan of plot twists, and when I heard this book had one I was instantly determined to read it. I read the whole book in one sitting. While it has an interesting story, I was a bit disappointed in the plot twist being a bit obvious (or atleast to me). Overall it is a heart wrenching book that had me so far into my emotions I could barely breathe. That’s why it’s a great, successful book in my opinion.

I am quite conflicted with this book. Some parts I found intriguing, but there were many parts in this book that I found difficult to get through and found myself taking many breaks because I lost interest. I think I’m a bit disappointed because I didn’t experience the “wow” factor like some of the other reviews mentioned at the end. While the ending does have a twist, it left me feeling confused and incomplete. Throughout the book, I was getting very frustrated with how the family members were responding to her, and I’m glad I got my questions answered at the end!

This book was horrible. The pacing was bad and it was so poorly written. I would not recommend at all. There are far better YA books.

i love it read it i in one sitting

this really really got to me. i definitely did not see the ending coming, though i love it regardless! so good.

You may find the urge to stop reading due to confusion at the beginning when all of the names are mentioned, but they are key to the plot. Take in every detail to see that they will soon fall in place and completely mess with your mind. I can’t really think of anything else to say besides READ THIS.

Kinda confusing but like the love story

Read this for an English Language Arts class I’m taking post-BA for a professional license. I was not imagining that a YA novel the teacher recommended as part of a classroom library would be this thrilling. It’s fantastically written — all the characters are so dynamic and flawed that I wanted to know more about everyone. I cried too much while reading to ever teach the book, but it’s worth the read.

Not entirely sure how I feel about this book. Some of it kept me awed and wanting to read more whereas in some parts I couldn’t wrap my head around especially the way of writing. The ending did have a unexpected twisted but for some reason I kind of didn’t fall for it . I just probably wanted it to be more realistic.

I do go through spells where I’ll voraciously read to pass the time but then forget what I read in a week or so. THIS book kept me up all night. The last time I was so emotionally attached to a story was Harry Potter in 3rd grade. I’m also a self proclaimed non crier, I BAWLED. Amazing book I will not soon forget

Such and interesting book!! I couldn’t put it down once I started it. I would highly recommend if you like mystery.

If you’re looking for a mystery with suspense and grit this is not it. This is more heartfelt and a little bit hard to follow at times. Not a bad read just not what I was expecting.

This was an absolutely amazing book but the ending could have been better I feel. It contradicted with what was going on when you think back to what was happening but otherwise I’d recommend this book. I couldn’t put it down once I started.

didn’t want to put it down.

I’m good at guessing endings but I did not see this one coming!!

This book was a great read that I couldn’t put down! I didn’t find much of a description of the book when I purchased it to read but I was pleasantly surprised to really like the story it told, The book is about a rich family that goes to a island every summer and spends the summer with all there extended family(grandparents, aunts and cousins) the oldest set of cousins all have a very close bond until a accident sends one cousin on a mission to uncover the truth about her accident because She can’t remember what really happened, as the truth unfolds it tells past and present which made you feel like you were reading a mystery. I was shocked at the ending and it added to the wow factor of the book, I will definitely be reading more from this author.

This is a good read, but the ending was so quick and not random but ...cliche. I liked a lot of the parts of the book and the lead up to the final parts, but I expected more. Definitely a page turner though, I just expected a more grandiose ending.

The twist at the end - OMG! We never saw it coming! And also, what a wonderful book. It kept me up all night until the last page was turned.

I bought this book about 2 years before I finally finished it. Lost my place a couple times. Restarted a couple times. So I understand, the book can be confusing and seem very long. However, when I finally did finish the book, I was so glad. This book is easily one of the best I have ever read. Putting the pieces together in the end will leave you astonished. Strongly suggest for young adult readers!!!!

This is sed one of the best books I’ve ever read!

It was confusingly written.

This is probably my least favorite book I’ve read during my reading binge over the past few months. I read the teaser and thought one thing, but I was completely let down. The only reason it doesn’t get one star from me is because of how likable some of the characters were.

3.7 stars for this one! I enjoyed it, but was just expecting more. More from the plot, characters, the world aka the island, the whole shebang. It was still an intriguing read, though!

Wonderfully written. I love how the author really illustrates the raw emotions the main character is feeling. I enjoyed the big plot twist at the end. In other storylines it may have come off as cleshay, but the author pulled it off very well.
