Girl on the Verge
Published by: Kensington
Publication date: June 27th 2017
Genres: Thriller, Young Adult
From the author of The Darkest Lie comes a compelling, provocative story for fans of I Was Here and Vanishing Girls, about a high school senior straddling two worlds, unsure how she fits in either—and the journey of self-discovery that leads her to surprising truths.In her small Kansas town, at her predominantly white school, Kanchana doesn’t look like anyone else. But at home, her Thai grandmother chides her for being too westernized. Only through the clothing Kan designs in secret can she find a way to fuse both cultures into something distinctly her own.When her mother agrees to provide a home for a teenage girl named Shelly, Kan sees a chance to prove herself useful. Making Shelly feel comfortable is easy at first—her new friend is eager to please, embraces the family’s Thai traditions, and clearly looks up to Kan. Perhaps too much. Shelly seems to want everything Kanchana has, even the blond, blue-eyed boy she has a crush on. As Kan’s growing discomfort compels her to investigate Shelly’s past, she’s shocked to find how much it intersects with her own—and just how far Shelly will go to belong…
DISCLAIMER: I received an ARC of this book for honest review.
This is the first book I've read from Pintip Dunn. I know, I know. Where have I been?! Pintip is an amazing writer. The story was creepy, had me turning page after page. I've mention before that I do like a good thriller. I don't always go for them. I love the challenge of guessing where a story is headed. Granted, I was off at some points, but it was still great.
MY RATING: 4 OF 5 STARS.
