Book Review


The challenge: spend a week hiding in an abandoned amusement park and don’t get caught.

The prize: enough money to change everything.

Even though everyone is desperate to win—to seize their dream futures or escape their haunting pasts—Mack feels sure that she can beat her competitors. All she has to do is hide, and she’s an expert at that.

It’s the reason she’s alive, and her family isn’t.

But as the people around her begin disappearing one by one, Mack realizes this competition is more sinister than even she imagined, and that together might be the only way to survive.

Fourteen competitors. Seven days. Everywhere to hide, but nowhere to run.

Come out, come out, wherever you are.

My Thoughts 

OMGGGGGG this book was just a wonderful powerful masterpiece and I could talk about how good it was for years. 

WHY ISN’T EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT THIS BOOK?!?! Did no one see what I saw?!!? I mean I’ve seen it around here and there, but it definitely is not getting the hype I think that it deserves. 

I honestly didn’t know anything I was getting into when I started this book. I mean I read the synopsis and thought I understood what I was getting into, but I was wrong… SO VERY WRONG and it was a VERY welcome surprise. The story is about a group of misfit characters in the competition of their lives… I mean really, their lives and they don’t even know it. 

I mean the premise of the competition was HIGHLY SUSPECT, but I understood their desperation and it made the story even more intriguing and suspenseful. Also these characters though flawed and unpredictable they may be, were so goddamn LOVEABLE. I mean most of them, definitely not all of them, but most of them have made a special place in my heart. 

Mack and Brandon are definitely the main contenders for most of my affection, but the whole gang is just amazing. 

BRANDOONNNNN… I’m still in my feelings about that one omggggg. 

This story is full of craziness and twists AND TURNS AND SO MANY SURPRISES. I loved it 

ALSOOOOOOOO the story is just so much more than a crazy and horrific tale of death and creepy. It is a powerful allegory of entitlement and how the “little people,” finally took revenge. 

In addition, if you read this book, make sure you read the author’s acknowledgements. They are amazinggggg.
