Review: Runaways

No one understands Kaylee and Mason's relationship - she's a girl from a wealthy and powerful family and he's from the wrong sides of the tracks.  But they love each other.

One day, they don't show up for school. It's also the same day that Kaylee's father's body is found.

As the police question her closet friends as school, it's clear that something major happened at the party last night. Could one of them have murdered Mr. Abernathy?

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book and here's why
1. Multiple Perspectives
2. Short chapters
3. Relationships - friends, dating, enemies - it all comes out.
4. Flashbacks: how everything started
5. Blackmail: learning secrets and spying on people
6. Rich kids who felt entitled (doesn't everyone want to see them fall?)
7. Forbidden romance
8. Sisters
9. Smart characters - especially the kind that everyone overlooks
10. A Murder mystery

All these things kept me turning the pages to figure out what happened.

Cover Thoughts: Not a huge fan

The cover is a bit off-putting, but I love your list of reasons why you enjoyed it. This sounds like a book I'd like.

Fabulous review!
