Book Review : Lying About Last Summer by Sue Wallman

Title  :  Lying About Last Summer

Author  :  Sue Wallman

Length  :  272 Pages

Rating  :  ★ ★ ★

Synopsis :  Skye is looking for an escape from the reality of last summer when her sister died in a tragic accident. Her parents think that a camp for troubled teenagers might help her process her grief. All of the kids at the summer camp have lost someone close, but is bringing them together such a good idea? And can everyone at camp be trusted? When Skye starts receiving text messages from someone pretending to be her dead sister, she knows it's time to confront the past. But what if the danger is right in front of her?

This book was not what I was expecting at all. I've put it down as a 3 star rating but honestly I think that's a little generous. It took me quite a while to get through this book and considering it has such a short number of pages just says it all.

This book is about a girl whose sister dies in a tragic accident. As she is trying to come to terms with what happened her parents decide it would be best to sent her to a camp. Strange things start happening to her and she tries to recover the mystery. 

The whole mystery of the text messages was solved way too quickly. There was almost as if there were two stories in one and it didn't really follow through and tie in with each other. There were aspects of the book that were not too bad but overall was totally boring. Even the characters didn't seem to have enough characteristics to differentiate one from the other. I just thought it was dull. Unique story line but still dull. 

Apologies for anyone who actually likes this book.
