Chloe was once a normal girl with a normal family until the night of a horrific crash that claimed Chloe’s mother’s life and almost her own. Chloe’s father is a scientist and with the help of his experimenting he has managed to keep Chloe alive but the two have to go into hiding while her father works out his cure.
Under My Skin got off to a bit of a slow start for me as you jump right into the story of Chloe and her father moving to hide but you don’t really know yet what or why it’s happened. A good portion of the beginning of the read is Chloe being alone in a new environment and coming to terms with what had happened to her so for me that was a bit of curiousness to the plot mixed with a bit of boredom waiting for more.
Once the story got moving a bit more and giving hints at what was going on it became a lot more engaging. Chloe just wants to be normal and tries her best to achieve that all the while the underlying aftermath of the accident is waiting to catch up keeping a reader in suspense.
In the end I decided to give this read 3.5 stars overall. It was a bit of a tough one to rate as I did think it took me a bit to get in to the read but after I did I flew right through it. But after finishing I think the whole story line could have been a bit more fleshed out. I think for me there were still some things I just would have liked to know more about to rate this a bit higher.
Overall, 3.5 stars, fast paced read but left me wanting a bit more in terms of answers given to the reader along the way, interesting plot though that grabbed my attention.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
