Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.
Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.
What really happened?
Someone is lying.
I’m still not completely certain what I think about this book, but one thing is clear, it’s sticking with me. And that’s a pretty good indication that this book has some winning qualities.
I really enjoyed that each of our three characters had a little hero and a little villain in them. And they all have their secrets. There was a good plot twist, quick catchy and smart writing, and each character had a clear voice.
Certainly worth a read of you’re looking for something outside your usual genre, or a quick read with a different voice and intriguing characters.
