For fans of Pretty Little Liars, Little Monstersis a new psychological thriller, from the author of The Darkest Corners, about appearances versus reality and the power of manipulation amongst teenage girls. Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister. Kacey s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls she s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them. Which is why it s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn't exactly feel like an accident. But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn t seem so welcoming after all especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers. Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you re the new girl, you shouldn t trust anyone.

This book was twisty and dark. I loved it. The characters felt fleshed out and the ending left me satisfied.

This book was definitely hard to put down. The mystery built through the book to lead up to a really unforgettable ending. I didn‘t figure it out right away and the clues and pieces of the story that built up to the revelation of what happened, really worked well and I really enjoyed everything about it. Definitely a great twisty story!

I was hooked to this story from the first page.

Usually I can figure out the twist early in but this one actually had me guessing until I got a few chapters towards the end.

Great YA Mystery/thriller read!

3.8/5 🌟

Manipulation, jealousy, gossip, betrayal, obsession & 3 teenage girls with social/emotional issues, what could possible go wrong??

A thrilling & suspenseful page-turner that will keep you guessing. I really enjoyed it but the ending felt a bit rushed & bland.

I spent the first 26 years of my life living in #Wisconsin and this quote is 100% accurate.

There is a small part of me that will always miss Wisconsin, but I‘ll take Virginia winters over Wisconsin‘s any day.

A great YA mystery/thriller involving the disappearance of a high school girl. Little Monsters keeps you on your toes and is a thrilling read. I stayed up pretty late reading it last night and couldn't fall asleep because the book was all I was thinking about. This book did not disappoint!

Woah; this book is intense! I don't want to give anything away in my review, so I'll just say this: I started it last night and finished it when I woke up this morning. I just had to know what happened. It's a terrifying yet gripping YA take on the thriller genre. Kara Thomas captures the intensity - and insanity - of teenage obsession.

TheLibrarian Great review! I'm a few pages away from finishing. 2y

Once again, work derails my reading. I have the day off. I want to read. I have ALL of these books that sound awesome plus a bunch of ebooks and yet I don't feel like reading any of them. At least they look pretty sitting there on the shelf.

Chachic So many library books! I'd say I was jealous but I've gotten used to not having access to a good public library. 2y
Zelma This how I've been feeling lately too. I can't settle on a book and have been in more of a tv mood. Ugh! I hate that. 2y
MarriedtoMrT @Zelma I've watched a lot of HGTV home flipping shows today. I've also spent a bunch of my birthday money one-clicking books I may never read since I can't seem to find the right one. It is very frustrating! 2y

MarriedtoMrT @Chachic I am extremely lucky! You are the master of Kindle deals, though! I "bought" that freebie you mentioned yesterday (or was it two days ago...I can't keep track of time.) 2y
Zelma @MarriedtoMrT I'm an HGTV addict too! That's my plan for evening if I can't find a book to settle on. Plus Mr. Z and I have been obsessed with The Walking Dead and binge watching lately. 2y
Chachic @MarriedtoMrT I'm always on the lookout for Kindle deals! I think most Filipino readers are like me.😂 2y
Chachic Oh and I watch k-drama when I'm not in the mood to read. 2y

I had a great time reading this story. The writing style draws you right in and with its fast pace I found myself flying through the pages. The intrigue around Bailey‘s disappearance and the many plot twists helped considerably as well and Little Monsters is without doubt a great psychological thriller. I wasn‘t sure about the main characters and some of the drama/cliches, but that is my only complaint...

4/5 stars

The summer reading program is totally taking over everything but I finally had a little time to read today and finished Little Monsters. I LOVED this twisty, snowy, thriller about a missing girl and all the people connected to it in a small town. Just the right amount of scary for me. #teenlibrarian

Perfect for the pool. A YA book with some twists and turns. The editor's letter to readers begins, "Dear Reader, Anyone who doesn't believe that a teenage girl is one of the most dangerous creatures is a fool."
What's not to love about that?!
