About this deal

I find it very weird that so many reviewers are applauding Pip and saying the ending was great, when the characters all made such stupid choices and literally did the very thing that the first book exposed as reprehensible (framing someone for a murder they didn’t commit! And I get that PTSD is real, I really do, but Pip turns so anti-police that the entire tone of the book becomes almost political, which is totally unnecessary. In this book, she is angry and traumatized, and has turned into my least-favorite trope of all time: a pill-popping, freaking out, paranoid, therapy-is-not-for-me female narrator. Nah THIS is the best one in the series, it was sick, twisted, horrifying, intense and so worth reading.

Pip decides she is the only one that can solve the case and her very life might depend on it, over the next few days the stick figures get closer to her house before they begin climbing the wall to her bedroom and she knows whoever it is, is coming for her and soon. She closed her eyes and made a new silent promise to him, because he had chosen her and she had chosen him: they were going to get away with it. bestselling YA crime thriller and WINNER of The British Book Awards’ Children’s Book of the Year 2020. Sleepless nights, that lead to her increasing reliance on – dependency on – addiction to illegal sleeping tablets that escalate from xanax to rohypnol. I must say that I disliked the fact that she still seemed to like Charlie, even after all of the PTSD Stanley’s death caused her and how much she was protesting him committing the act at the time.If you've read any other reviews, you've likely seen that there is a major twist around the halfway mark, and it's not the revelation of the identity to the serial killer being discussed.

While Pip is used to trolls, any person with a public presence on the net is, she begins to take special notice when one particular troll asks her the same question over and over: who will look for you when you're the one who disappears? Now Pip’s ensnared in this web of lies she created for herself and of course now if one strand breaks she’ll be convicted of something way worse than self-defense. I probably repeated myself a bunch of times, but as stated before this is a rant 😂 sorry 🙈 To sum up, this was partly a huge disappointment and a terrible way to close off such a great series IMO. Regardless, I loved how all the mystery or cases from book 1 and 2 were brought together and tied into this one. This book has nuclear meltdowns, knotty plannings, creepy scenarios, unconditional love, and incredible friendship goals.

Prepare for all the moral dilemma it’ll cause and get ready to be mindblown—whether in a good or bad way, that’s for you to find out. And Pip knew, as her eyes trailed away from him, that this wasn’t just about her own survival; she knew herself well enough by now.

That, and the fact that she so easily takes justice in her own hands, turns proper vigilante AND gets away with it all. Overall, this has been a solid 5 star series and each one of these books has left me breathless by the end and this might be contender for my favourite book of the year. The seventeen-year-old who thought the truth was the only thing that mattered, no matter the context, no mind to that suffocating grey area. Ravi is so caring and understanding, he was there for Pippa and continue to do so until the last book. with this book, it takes a completely different turn, given she has completely lost herself, and has become this paranoid person who cannot sleep and has so much pressure on her.It was chilling, it was scary, it kept me on the edge of my seat (atp I'm glued down to this damn couch). the difference with the crime that pip committed was the fact that the ppl she got involved (max) deserved everything coming to them (jason). But that means it made me feel and thats for me the most important thing in a book that it makes me feel and that was what As good as dead delivered.
