Nothing is as it seems in this darkly romantic tale of infatuation and possession, inspired by Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca.Becca
was the perfect girlfriend: smart, gorgeous, and loved by everyone at
New England’s premier boarding school, Thorn Abbey. But Becca’s dead.
And her boyfriend, Max, can’t get over his loss.
Tess transfers to Thorn Abbey. She’s shy, insecure, and
ordinary—everything that Becca wasn’t. And despite her roommate’s
warnings, she falls for brooding Max.
Now Max finally has
a reason to move on. Except it won’t be easy. Because Becca may be
gone, but she’s not quite ready to let him go…
I was super excited to read this book.
I loved Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier and I had a lot of hope for this YA version.
I felt there was A LOT lacking. There wasn't a lot of character
building, Tess was creepy from the start and did not get better plus
really annoying. I DID like how Tess grew a but during the book I liked
the twist on "Rebecca" and the possession of the other characters. I
liked the YA theme of it all but I just felt that there could be so much
more to the story. The language I felt was unnecessary at times
especially for the character of Tess because that just wasn't her! I did
like the ending the final page and how it ended and then just ended
Recommend: I gave it 1 star, what do you think?
