My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When a group of high school bullies lock Ella Raimi inside of a janitorial closet on a Friday night and leave her there she isn’t found until Saturday morning. Ella is in a state of shock when found and as she comes out of it she insists she OK and doesn’t want to involve the police about her bullies.

Ella only has one friend, Kyla. Kyla stays with Ella after her incident and tries to care for her but shortly after the closet incident Ella begins to have horrible nightmares and find she wakes up to finding things have happened and no memory of them. Is Kyla somehow to blame? Is Ella doing these things in her sleep??

An excellent psychological thriller that pulls you in from the first moments of Ella being locked up in the closet and won’t let go until the end. I did however figure out the ending fairly early on but even with guessing I still didn’t want to put the story down until done.

Ella pulled me into her story from the first few moments just knowing that she would have such an interesting story to tell and definitely was not disappointed in the least. A rather emotional roller coaster that even when finishing a part of me is still thinking noooo I want to read more about Ella and what will happen. Always find it good to have a story or characters that it’s hard to let them go when finished.

Great fast paced read that was tough to put down until finished.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
