I was in a three way friendship myself once upon a time and it didn't go well. One girl was kinda controlling and if she was mad at me or the other girl we had to side with her or she'd turn on both of us. I was the odd one out but I managed to avoid a tragic fate that poor Skylar did. I just got two bitches circling me and calling me names which isn't fun but if one is forced to choose between between brutally stabbed to death I'm sure we all know what we'd pick. We went our separate ways which is what should have happened with these girls.
This year I decided to avoid trapping myself into one genre. When Kate Elliott released her first YA book I thought holy crap I haven't read a book by her in about ten years. So I've been trying to read multiple genres so I don't burn myself out. I haven't read many true crime books. I did read one about the Girl In The Box. I'm not sure about the exact name of the book and I read one earlier this year. The second one didn't exactly wow me but this one was a much better read. It has been kinda sluggish for me with reading for the past few weeks. It doesn't help that I had a migraine from hell hence me still reading The Diviners. Anyhoo I did enjoy this one but I kinda feel weird rating a book that's about a kid that never got to live her life because she was guilty of being naive and trusting of people she should have ran away from. I guess the lesson would be to trust no one.
It is sad that this kid will never grow up. I have to wonder if they have a point about that high school since that's a lot of deaths. I'm pretty sure no one died while I was in high school. There was a group of guys who were keeping score on girls they slept with but no murders unless I later find out that the guy who people thought was my twin turned into a serial killer. It does make you wonder about the world and how it seems to be going down the toilet because it just doesn't make sense that a person would kill another person because they didn't like them anymore or supposedly because of a secret. Would being outed really be that big of a deal these days? Doesn't seem like a killing offense to me and I'd say people are more accepting now than in the past although there are still plenty of assholes out there that think you're going to hell if you don't fit a certain type.
