13 Minutes | Sarah Pinborough
I was dead for 13 minutes. I don't remember how I ended up in the icy water but I do know this - it wasn't an accident and I wasn't suicidal. They say you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but when you're a teenage girl, it's hard to tell them apart. My friends love me, I'm sure of it. But that doesn't mean they didn't try to kill me. Does it? 13 MINUTES by Sarah Pinborough is a gripping psychological thriller about people, fears, manuiplation and the power of the truth. A stunning read, it questions our relationships - and what we really know about the people closest to us . . .

This book felt like it was going to be predictable, but it detoured from what I expected and a twist at the end kept it fresh. I enjoyed it, but wasn't overly impressed.

This was a Three Star book. Just not my cup of tea. If you like One of Us is Lying and Pretty Little Liars than this may be for you.

I read this for a book club. There were some who really enjoyed it and some who really hated it. I was somewhere in the middle. It's hard to describe this book without spoilers. It felt like it was two books and two genres; part YA part adult psychological thriller. That inconsistency didn't work well for me.
Most of the characters are female and none of the characters are particularly likeable.

Finished my first book of 2019. I could take it or leave it...okay for a YA but a bit too high school drama for me. Things like this just don‘t REALLY happen, ya know?!

This was EXCELLENT. Popular girl Tasha is found near death in a river, and secretly reunites with her “uncool” ex-best-friend Becca to find out what happened to her. Sarah Pinborough has gained a new fan with this one. The plot twists were totally unexpected to me, and it was just...great!

I absorbed myself in this book since the night before and finished this morning.

I was a little hesitant to read another book by this author because I didn‘t like Behind Her Eyes but this book was so much better than that one.

The whining teenage girls was a little annoying but that‘s how children are so I tried to remind myself that. The characters are great. The story is a great psychological thriller.

Whoah. This was way darker and more twisted than I had anticipated- definitely a wild ride! Reminded me of Mean Girls meets Cruel Intentions...but a tad far fetched. I‘d love to met Sarah Pinborough and pick her brain!

Side Note- I always get slightly irritated when YA books casually refer to teen drug and alcohol use. Obviously we know kids are experimenting, but should we make it seem so commonplace?!
Recommend this for older HS+
3.5 🌟

ravenlee I agree about the drug and alcohol use. I also hate everybody having casual sex in YA. Sure, some high school kids are experimenting with substances and sex - but plenty are pretty straight-laced or just too plain busy for that stuff. In HS I honestly believed everybody's stories about wild weekend parties were made up or exaggerated. It wasn't until near graduation I actually started believing them. 2y
ravenlee Admittedly, that was 20 years ago and I was both naive and crazy busy, but still...I doubt I'm the only one, ever. 2y
JoScho Interesting-stacked ❤️ 2y

Kaylamburson I completely agree, @ravenlee. I was just thinking that today while reading a YA galley since it had jokes about drinking and driving and needing alcohol to get through the day...at 16! I don‘t like that books are making it the norm. And it‘s pushing out more wholesome stories. For instance, on @ahoffkosik ‘s podcast, they discussed Princess Diaries and how it wouldn‘t have been popular today because it‘s too young. I liked wholesome as a teen. 2y
TheFunkyBookworm @Kaylamburson @ravenlee yes! There are so many times I‘m reading a great YA book and they throw in the sex/alcohol/drugs completely unnecessarily and all of a sudden I can‘t recommend it to my 8th graders bc it‘s not appropriate! Drives me mad! I understand making things a little edgy to draw in that age group but geezealou! (edited) 2y
Eggs I hate that we/booklist makers/schools/authors feel like we need to normalize sex/drugs to catch or keep our adolescents' attention 2y
TheFunkyBookworm @Eggs Books already struggle against other forms of entertainment such as movies/tv/video games- so I guess I understand why they do it but it is def frustrating! 2y
Peddler410 Speaking as a mom and middle school librarian: we need more books for kiddos reading above grade level that are keeping content at grade level. My daughter (9) is reading things my middle schoolers read — I‘m fully involved, so it‘s okay. I wish I could give her more at that reading level that feature kiddos her age! 🙂 2y
TheFunkyBookworm @Peddler410 I totally agree with you! Diary of a Wimpy Kid just ain‘t cutting it anymore! Lol 2y
Daisey @Peddler410 @TheFunkyBookworm I agree with this completely! I struggle with the same thing in choosing books for my 6th-8th class library as well as recommending books for my above level readers. 2y
TheFunkyBookworm @Daisey I‘m hoping to use #YAWednesday as a way to compile a list of books by genre/category that are appropriate for my 8th graders. I kind of wish Books came with tv/movie ratings- like PG/PG13! The levels of books are easier to figure out but content not so much...unless you read it lol So many times the premise of a book sounds promising but then midway through they sneak something in and bam- no longer appropriate! 2y

Starting another #YAWednesday pick from @jwashreads ... this one sounds awesome and I LOVED Behind Her Eyes!

Sigh... apparently I need to start getting to the pool at 8am if I want to read in peace and quiet...or I could stop being a brat- but that is significantly less likely 😒😝

Kdazy Please tell me you give "the look" or say something to misbehaving kids like I do! ? 2y
TheFunkyBookworm @Kdazy of course! I also had to have a stern talk with some teens about their use of language- they were yes ma‘am-ing me by the time I was done 😂 I reserve “the look” for when the parents are there but don‘t say anything 🙄 2y

Hey #YAWednesday peeps! I had a hard time with this one because I really do not read mysteries and thrillers. I had to go back in my goodreads for a year! From what I understand, her adult thriller, Behind her Eyes, is spectacular! I struggled with the beginning of this one, but the end made up for it!
@TheFunkyBookworm

CoffeeNBooks I thought this was a great book! I just happened to pick it up when I was in the school library with my students. I haven't read Behind Her Eyes yet, but I want to! 2y
TheFunkyBookworm Ohhh I‘ve read Behind Her Eyes and LOVED that one!!! I can see this one is going to be a must read for me- and hopefully for my students! Lol thank you for participating 💜🎉 2y
jwashreads @CoffeeNBooks @TheFunkyBookworm my friend read Behind Her Eyes and loved it so much that she wrote the publisher to tell them. Then the publisher sent her and ARC of 13 Minutes and another book in thanks! I was really cool! 2y

A solid crime story that didn‘t read like the description. I‘m not disappointed in the disparity b/c had it been that, the book would have sucked. It was full of twists and turns, some predictable and some not, and was told through narrative, interviews, and diary entries so that was fun to read. It‘s a YA book and had hallmarks of that but nothing to the point of distraction. It took time to find its groove but worth getting there in the end.

Ikik dacht dat dit boek weinig verrassend was maar het wist mij wel te verassen tegen het einde! Ik schrok ervan hoe gemeen tieners kunnen zijn tegen elkaar en wat ze allemaal belangrijk vinden en hoe de dingen echt zo snel en gemakkelijk uit de hand kunnen lopen.
Ik raad dit boek echt aan. Het is intrigerend, realistisch en geeft een heel leerrijke inkijk in de gevoelens en gedrag van tieners in deze geavanceerde technologische wereld.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Since I've finished reading Blackwing I've added this book to my #currentlyreading stack since I can't seem to get into Gone Girl at the moment...
This is s sneak peek of sorts of my most recent #bookshop which I haven't yet posted..
This bit from the synopsis is especially interesting:
"Ze zeggen dat je je vrienden dichtbij moet houden en je vijanden nog dichterbij, maar als je een tiener bent, is het moeilijk om ze uit elkaar te houden..."

4 sterren. Awesome YA-thriller. Het voelt meteen alsof je in de sfeer van Pretty Little Liars wordt meegevoerd: geheimen, roddels op school en een knappe leraar. Heerlijk om te lezen en méga spannend. Extra leuk is dat je tussendoor sms'jes leest die naar elkaar worden gestuurd.

An interesting read, although, I did guess the outcome quite early on. I enjoyed the YA perspective and the narrator did an awesome job. The bitchiness of teenage girls is quite prominent in the story and certainly accurate, by today's standards.

This surprised me! I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did - I'd read a couple of negative reviews on Goodreads that seemed hung up on the fact that it's a YA thriller. To be honest, other than the age of the main characters, I can't say as that bothered me at all. It had me from about a chapter in, and because of a child off school with flu, I finished it over 2 days! Well worth a read!

I'm trying so hard to like this book. But I'm beginning to despair that I spent money on this instead of an actual readable book. PLEASE, something change my mind 😭😭 The writing echoes someone who has obviously never been a teenager with the style of voice they choose. I'm just constantly cringing.
