THE TWISTED THREAD is not what I expected. It's a slow burn of a thriller that focuses on the reactions and lives of the adult faculty at a prestigious boarding school. Maybe it's because of all my YA reading, but I felt myself wanting to know more about what the students felt more than the adults. I think I also expected more of a scandal or shock a la THE SECRET HISTORY or SPECIAL TOPICS IN CALAMITY PHYSICS but this is a different sort of book. More contemplative and concerned with dissecting the topics of tradition, privilege and wealth.
Look for it on its release date of June 14, 2011 and check out the book on GoodReads.
