The Sleepover - Keri Beevis
When you’re a kid, you imagine monsters to have horns and fangs. That they hide under the bed or in the wardrobe. And you believe they can only come after you when it’s dark.
You don’t expect them to look like everyday people or that they may be someone you already know…
The summer in question started out with hot, fun-filled days and new friendships.
We had just turned thirteen and had our whole lives ahead of us.
But that was before her…
Before we became known as the Hixton Six and our lives become defined by one night.
It’s hard to believe twenty years have passed since she was locked away.
But now she’s free and strange things have started to happen.
When I close my eyes, the creeping anxiety and fear is overwhelming and all too real.
Because the monster is back, and I know she has a score to settle with us.

MY THOUGHTS -
Let me start at the end - This book ended up being a fabulous (twisted, but fabulous) book!
Now back to the beginning. It stared out VERY slow for me. I hate to say it, but I almost lost interest and quit reading. I am sooo glad I didn't give up! About half way through it really started to get good.
I read the whole last half in one sitting and went to bed very late because I had to finish!
This was a very twisty, spider webby, intense story. Several times I thought I knew what was going on and "who done it", but... every time - I was wrong.
I liked the different points of view. It was easy to figure out, so thank you! I also loved the back and forth through time to give us a view of how it all started. This was all very well done.
The characters - Hmmm, they were good and well developed. I felt like I knew them, but didn't love any of them and didn't feel attached to them. But still very well done, again.
And then - Great ending!
This was my first book by this author. I would definitely read another one!
I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources - Thank You!!
