My review of book 1 : X
This book was a perfect conclusion to such an interesting series. I really enjoyed it. I have to talk about the diversity in this book, not only with the characters, but with the whole storyline. There’s soooo many issues touched in this duology, it really has a little bit of everything. It’s not too overwhelming either, i think it was incredibly well-done. One of things i really liked in this one is learning who did each prank from last year and trying to figure out who was behind the ending of book one. Added a little mystery aspect. It was also really interesting to see how the year before marked all of the girls, how they are trying to come back for all of this drama. All of our girls have been changed by the events, and they are just trying to figure out what to do next.
i was not expecting to enjoy this duology when i first picked it up, but i really liked it. It’s dark, it’s crazy, and i would recommend it.
