Sound awesome? Not sure? Read my review and see if it helps:
Okay so for this review Imma do something a bit different and kinda new that I’m thinking of doing in the future. But let me tell you why I’m doing this (in the words of bestie Gabi): “I can’t describe how amazing this book is. If I did I’m pretty sure you all will be going on Google translate for the language Fangirl”
For all you readers and reviewers out there, you know my problem; if I had my way, this post would just be “asqwfhekjqfrewff!”. In the interest of keeping this review a little more professional and readable, Imma do a mini report card like review….
Plot (A+): Now the plot was about several people catfishing someone on Facebook which was what drew me to the book. Why? I just love CSI Cyber/crime/mystery kind of things and though this book was a much more juvenile version of CSI Cyber, the ideas of catfishing and the thoughts on both sides were very much there. The book also kept you very much on the edge of your seat as, even though you know who was doing what, the mystery behind when the someone would find out they were being catfished and what would happen next was pretty awesome.
Characters and Relationships (A+): Probably my favorite part of the book was the relationships between the characters. There were no clichés in the book really and all the relationships between the characters seemed great and not forced at all. The characters themselves where great as well! Again, not really any clichés and they all acted within the range of rational human beings. I know that sounds vague but by the end of the book you’ll see what I mean.
So that’s it for my part in this wonderfully awesome blog tour, but guess what? There’s a giveaway for you guys!!
