Excited to be heading to our local library today to see three Australian authors speak about crime writing 😍 It‘s a panel discussion so should be fascinating!

Wendy James‘s psychological thriller is a sharply observed affair on bullies and their victims and I enjoyed both the way James highlights the difference between the life Beth constructs for herself on her blog compared with what‘s actually happening and the slow reveal of Charlotte‘s borderline psychopathy but I wasn‘t convinced by the twist ending (especially the set-up for it, which seemed a little undercooked).

Oh man, I'm glad I'm not a parent to teenagers, this was an interesting book, it didn't go quite in the direction I was expecting but it was still interesting. I didn't love some of the characters so gnat may have impacted the way I viewed the book. Bullying, the internet, stay home mum/working Mum... all important topics and it was well handled I just didn't love it

This is an interesting book so far, making me very uncomfortable, what is it about mean teenage girls? #aussieauthors #aww

Can bad children happen to good mothers?

Domestic thriller about bullying. Totally enthralling. Five stars. Read it.

I really wanted to like this book - engaging writing style, fast pace, kept me turning the pages but... I felt tricked a little by the author. I thought I was reading a novel about the harmful impacts of teenage bullying and it somehow turned into a 'who done it'! I felt as though this completely glossed over the bullying issue with no real consequences for the perpetrator. Disappointed.
