SHHHH!Don't spread the word!Three-day weekend. Party at White Rock House on Henry Island.You do NOT want to miss it.
It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.
But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.
Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

Sorry everyone for being late on this one but when you check out the books read this week on my Week in Review you will see why I was late. I verily got this one in and was reading on it today to finish it. 🙂 But hey, better late than never! 😉

First Line

Minnie’s face was deathly pale.

What I thought of this book

I have seen this book around for a while and have always wanted to try it. I heard it was like a teen version of Agatha Christie’s Then There Was One. Though I haven’t read that I was real curious about this one.

Ten teens are summoned for a party on Henry Island. None of them know why they were chosen for the party as not all of them know each other, but there was a purpose. After watching a home movie on DVD they are all weirded out a bit and think that someone is trying to play a prank on them and then during the night Meg finds someone dangling from the ceiling.

One by one they start to die but who is doing it and is it one of them or has someone else in the house. Meg finds a diary and she thinks it explains what has been happening but can it really be that person?

In this creepy story they can’t trust anyone and they are stuck on the island till the ferry comes back because there is no phones and no Internet connections as a big storm has come through, or was it all sabotaged?

This was a pretty good story but the main character really kind of drove me crazy. I liked her but at the same time I really wanted to slap her and tell her to get real. She likes T. J. so why should she bow out just cause her manic bestie wants him too. It’s not like it was a I saw him first and laid claims on him or anything and T. J. likes Meg so what is she doing! I will admit that some of the characters are really made to where you want them to die, you are like…oh you are a nasty B*&#@ or man he was a jerk…lol.

I will say that I had my hunches on who it might have been but in the end I didn’t guess right and that makes for a good mystery. So even though some of the characters drove me crazy I still enjoyed it.  I felt like I was reading a teen slasher movie. 🙂

If you like YA horror then give it a try. I didn’t find it scary but it was suspenseful and creepy in parts.

  1. This sounds like a creepy one with how they are all stuck on the island and people are dying and turning on each other. Sounds like the mystery is well done too with how you didn’t guess who was the killer. Although some of the character do sound annoying. Great Review!

  2. I’m huge on character driven stories so I’m afraid I might not enjoy this as much as I was hoping since your mention about the main character. I’ll be reading this as I have it. Still curious to read what occurs. Thanks for the great review!

  3. I’m glad you enjoyed this for the most part, Stormi. I had to laugh about the annoying characters that you wanted to die. And I’m with you about Meg and TJ – what is she thinking. I really do like that McNeil kept you guessing with the mystery…that says a lot about the story. Great review!
