Do you have what it takes to be a Final Girl?

About the Book

Publisher’s description: Each girl survived an unthinkable horror. Now someone wants them dead. They were called The Final Girls – three young women who survived unimaginable horror. Three victims of separate massacres grouped together by the press. Three strangers bound by similar traumas. Lisa. Quincy. Samantha. When something terrible happens to Lisa, put-together Quincy and volatile Sam finally meet. Each one influences the other. Each one has dark secrets. And after the bloodstained fingers of the past reach into the present, each one will never be the same.

My Review (4 out of 5)

This is an impressive debut that’s difficult to summarise without giving spoilers. So I’ll just say it’s a pacy, well-written thriller full of twists and turns and red herrings that leads you up the garden path and back again until the final unexpected reveal. There are two teeny clues along the way that point to what really happened at Pine Cottage but if you’re able to put them together to arrive at the solution before you read it on the page, then you deserve congratulations (or you’re lying!). My only slight reservation is that I didn’t really fall in love with Quincy as a character but the unfolding plot kept me hooked in spite of this.

I received an advance reader copy courtesy of NetGalley and publishers, Random House UK, in return for an honest review.
