"It's been almost a year since Makani Young came to live with her grandmother in landlocked Nebraska, and she's still adjusting to her new life. And still haunted by her past in Hawaii. Then, one by one, the students of her small town high school begin to die in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, Makani will be forced to confront her own dark secrets. Stephanie Perkins, bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss, returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that's fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to put down."-- Provided by publisher.

It was okay. The teen slasher concept was interesting and that element of it was well done, but the main character I thought was rather annoying. She moves to Nebraska because of a "dark secret" that is quite a letdown when you finally learn what it is. The killers motive is weak and pretty much as soon as you find out what it is the book just ends. There is no denouement whatsoever. It just ends.

All in all, a fine unique read that's a bit disappointing but also enjoyable enough given the unique concept.

Someone is killing students at Osborn High, but they like to play with them first. As the hunt for the killer becomes more intense, no one knows who the next victim may be. It was slasher creepy, but not overly so. This isn't a book that will freak you out, but it is certainly a lot of fun. You never knew who would be the next victim, and that hardest part was figuring out why these specific students were being killed. I also have to give a shout out to Perkins for her allusion to one of my all time favorite series, "The Song of the Lioness Quartet" by Tamora Pierce! I had to reread that a couple of times to make sure I saw what I thought I saw. It was a fun read for October and great for fans of slasher style horror.

jumped on this one because it looked like a fun slasher film in book form. It is that but there's a lot more going on to and it was even more heartwrenching than I was expecting. Our main character Makani has moved from Hawaii to Nebraska after a traumatizing incident at her old high school. She did not bargain for someone going through her new classmates and violently murdering them. Not now that she's already been here a year and has managed to hide her old life from everyone.

It's very much a teen slasher film in book form but there's a lot more emotion here than you'd expect.

As a rule I do not like teen slasher books or movies but this one, filled with secrets, had me HOOKED. The advance copy I received stopped - right before the killer was going to be revealed to Makani. Aargh! It's torture waiting for this book to be released in September.
