You have four days to locate five treasured trophies. Break the rules and you all die. Happy hunting!
Back in September, the town of Bakersville, Ohio made national news when a video went viral featuring thirteen of the high school’s elite in compromising positions. Now it’s May, and every month since the “Bakersville Dozen” made their infamous appearance on the national stage, one girl has gone missing. Officials are no closer to identifying the criminal.
Bailey “Like a Virgin” Holzman is getting really fed up with the scrutiny. She just wants to enjoy the rest of her senior year and have an epic summer before heading off to college. So when she discovers a note in her locker on the last day of school inviting her on a scavenger hunt, she thinks it’s just a sweet surprise from her boyfriend trying to cheer her up.
But following the clue leads her, instead, to the first official casualty. And another sinister envelope. The killer is close, and it could be anyone. Even the people Bailey’s always trusted most—her best friend, her perfect boyfriend, or the boy-next-door she’s always pined for.
With the clock ticking, she faces a terrifying choice: play the game by the killer’s rules—follow the clues, tell no one, and no cops—for a chance to save the rest of the missing girls, or risk becoming the next grisly victim.
Bailey only wants to have her peace ever since the video of “The Bakersville Dozen” went viral and some of the girls included in the video starts to disappear. But when an envelope with her name on it appeared in her locker on the last day of school, telling her to participate in a scavenger hunt, what she thought would make all her worries disappear would became the biggest disaster of all.
- It exceeded my expectations. This is one of those books wherein I expected less but really got much much more. It is interesting to the point where I slept in late because I want to know how the story ends.
- Interesting storyline. Whenever I turn a page or two, the story is woven into something new, something unpredictable up, until the last pages of the book. Even the suspect is ever changing that the big reveal will shock you in the end.
- There are holes in the story that are still left unsolved. I will not spoil you on anything but I just feel that something is still missing even after I have finished reading the book. There are questions still left unanswered for and I am still wondering what the answer for those questions are.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I hope you’ll have a nice day.
Till my next review!
