Keeping secrets is second nature to Nearly Boswell. Living in a trailer park outside Washington, DC, with a mom who works as an exotic dancer, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Only her best friends know about her obsession with the personal ads, and Nearly hasn’t told anyone about the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone’s skin.
Then a serial killer goes on a murder spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper. Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn’t figure it out soon – she’ll be next.
I loved this one! It was mystery with a bit of paranormal and contemporary intertwined!
I really liked Nearly as a character. Even though she’s had a rough life, she’s still fighting to make it! Reece was also great and well developed with an interesting backstory.
People start dying around Nearly, and they all connect to her. So what is a girl to do? Find out why of course. The mystery here is quite intriguing and there is a lot of the unexpected which I really liked! I’m glad there is more because I want to know what’s in store for Nearly next!
