Got a copy of this book via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

The main character is Quincy Carpenter. She is a so called Final Girl. She survived a massacre in a cabin in the woods when she was there with her friends. You get to know her 10 years later, when she has no memories about that night, at all. She is now living together with her loving boyfriend Jeff and she spends her days baking for an online baking-blog. The main character is so strong, because you go from loving her, to hating her, to doubting her, to loving her again. It's just a great set-up. Next to the great main character you have great side characters, who really add something to the story.

It's a small world that Quincy is living in. It's mainly her appartment that the story takes place in. What's really cool is that you get flashbacks to that horrible night when her friends were slaughtered. With help from the flashbacks and the story evolving, you learn the truth about what happened that night...

The story starts with you getting to know Quincy. It takes some chapters to get to know her and then the story starts to evolve. Another Final Girl was killed and this gets the story going. With Quincy ofcourse frightened, another Final Girl is seeking out help and support from Quincy. They give each other support, start to hang out together and  that's when the plot twists get you going.. Won't spoil too much :)..

HELL YEAH! This is what I LOVE about this book. You think you've figured everything out at 60% of the book. Then you change your mind and think you've figured it out at 70%.. And then you're like WHAT?! And think you really know what happened at 80%.. But I will assure you. You won't know what hit you untill you reach 95% of the book, just the way I love it!

If you like a good thriller, that is fast paced, you should read this book. It's one of those books where you tell yourself that you will stop reading when you finish this chapter.. But at the end of the chapter you're like: ONE MORE!
