Mary’s 17th birthday is not going as expected. Her friends ignore her, she receives strange warnings that her life is in danger, and she keeps having terrifying visions.
I’m going to stop there, as to say more would to go into spoiler territory. True, I picked it up based on the jacket copy which is spoilerific (read at your own risk), but I think it must be even more fun to go into this knowing as little as possible.
This really reminded me of old school Christopher Pike and it kept me up into the wee hours because I just HAD to know what would happen. It’s a lot of fun, and logical in its own convoluted way.
I loved the opening scene where Mary wakes up naked in a Crate & Barrel in NYC. It felt so original, and that same creative storytelling propels the novel forward.
Although this is mainly Mary’s story, we also get to know the 6 other souls that are part of the title in surprising ways. All in all, very cool. Highly recommended!
