teen fiction (private high school murder and suspense w/significant roles played by lesbian and bisexual female characters)

not too satisfying as a mystery, as the investigating main character gets sidetracked a lot--I'd say this is more of a murder/suspense, though there is a big reveal at the end. ( )

3.5 stars

Thank you Putnam Books and Goodreads for the advanced copy!

While the story was pretty unbelievable, I enjoyed the characters and their circumstances. People Like Us takes place at a boarding school with four friends who are being targeted for bullying after the murder of a student. Reminiscent of Thirteen Reasons Why, the victim punishes the girls from the grave forcing Kay to solve the murder before her secrets are publicized. With short chapters, fast pacing, and quippy dialogue this is the perfect read for a summer day! ( )

Probably more like 3.5 but rounding up.

I THINK I NEED THERAPY AFTER READING THIS. What a twisted sapphic mean girls murder mystery. I love a classic unreliable narrator and this was everything I wanted from this book.

Full review (probably) coming soon. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in like one sitting. It was fast paced, (somewhat) twisty, and I just could not put it down.

It also definitely wasn't my genre. This book was hella enjoyable, but... personally, I didn't find it wasn't anything more than that. And I truly think that this was purely a personal issue. I just... couldn't connect.

So I'm having a bit of a hard time rating this one. I'm really torn between 4 stars and 3.5. I feel like I could easily justify either rating, but since I DO feel that it was largely because it's not my genre, and it WAS really enjoyable, I'm going to leave it at four for now.

All complaints aside though, I really did enjoy this book quite a bit! It was exciting and action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! Also all the characters were great! Not super remarkable (or else I just have no memory... this is just as likely tbh), but well developed and fun to read about.

The plot was really good too! I can't really say much about it without spoilers, and also I suck at giving plot descriptions, so just go read the back if you want to know what the hell it's actually about. However, actual DESCRIPTIONS aside, I would like to talk about the plot.

It was REALLY good. While the characters are great, this is very much a plot driven book. And the plot shines. It's so clearly well thought out, and it's well paced and exciting and (fairly) twisty!
I really think the plot is where this book is strongest, so if that's your thing, I think you will love this book. I, however, prefer my books more characters driven. (And also I prefer my books to not be thrillers. So there's that.)

Okay, but I DID figure out who the murderer was. I spent probably the first two thirds of this book (look at me making up percentages because I actually have no clue!) with NO IDEA who the murderer was. But somewhere around the two thirds point (again I'm actually totally guessing on this percentage, lol.) I started to get suspicious, and by the time we actually find out... Yeah I was pretty certain already.

Still, the plot was NEVER boring, even after I'd figured the murderer out, and there was still some TWISTS that left me SHOOK.

Overall? This wasn't entirely my style, but it was hella fun, and I one hundred percent recommend it! ( )

Kay is attending one of the last social events of Year 12 late at night. She and her friends decide to have a midnight swim in the lake surrounding her boarding school. But when they get there, they find the body of a fellow classmate floating in the water. This brings up a lot of Kay's past as she has to deal with the police, just like she had to when her brother and her best friend died. This is a story of lots of suspects and twists and turns as Kay is forced by a covert website to confront each of her "friends"secrets to try and uncover who the murderer actually is. There is a secret on again, off again relationship with her best friend, a possible link with her ex-boyfriend who slept with the murdered girl, the girl's boyfriend and other people who have motives and means.
I must admit I guessed who the murderer actually was about half way through the book. The ending is harrowing where Kay's past is revealed and made me feel a little cheated because you have invested so much time into the main character, that to find out what she did ( which makes her on par with the murderer) is quite confronting. It is for mature readers due to the LGBT relationship and the casual attitudes the teenagers have to sex, alcohol and drugs. It will be interesting to see what the students make of this book. ( )
