Makani Young moved away from a life she loved in Hawaii to dull and boring Nebraska for one reason: to escape from her old life. She once thought her life was perfect and idyllic, but is now shattered by a few stupid mistakes. Her life is not normal for long, though. When someone begins mercilessly killing the students at her high school, Makani knows that she has to do something to save both her life and the lives of everyone she has come to care for. She soon learns that instead of helping herself by moving to Nebraska, she might have been digging her own grave. This book is extremely descriptive, which made the book a compelling read. In fact, I had a very hard time putting the book back down after picking it up. The problem with this book having such fantastic imagery is the murder scenes. These parts of the book were very graphic and slightly sickening. Fortunately, the murders do not take up a large part of the story, so I was able to get through them quickly. The killer was exposed a little too early for my liking, and at first I felt confused, because the book seemed over about halfway through. Then, I realized that the real mystery was the killer's motive. This is revealed at the end of the book, and it was so obvious that I didn't catch it as I was reading. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick read that will have chills shooting up and down your spine long after you've finished. On a scale of 1-5, I would rate this book a 4.
