Book Review for Kara Thomas' THE DARKEST CORNERS

I'm pleased to present you with my review for Kara Thomas' new YA thriller titled, THE DARKEST CORNERS.

Kara Thomas’ The Darkest Corners is an amazing YA thriller. When Tessa Lowell left her small hometown at the age of nine she left so many secrets behind, but she didn’t know they were secrets until she returned nine years later. Memories of the Ohio River Monster, an evil murderer that killed her best friend’s cousin haunted her. Though she never saw the man, it was the memory of her own testimony that put the wrong man behind bars that plagued her.

The plot twists and turns. Red herrings abound, and when the reader is sure they have solved the mystery before Tessa, they are wrong. . . dead wrong! Just like the girls that were murdered. But not all of them were the victims of the Ohio River Monster. When Tessa and Callie put their heads together to compare their doubts about what adults persuaded them to say under oath when they were children, the results are surprising to Tessa, Callie, and the reader.

Thomas’ writing is dynamic, realistic, and wonderfully developed. The mantra on the front cover—Everyone has something to hide—describes the plotline perfectly!
