Title: The Outliers by Kimberley McCreight
Release: 3rd May 2016
Synopsis: Imagine if you could see inside the minds of everyone around you – your best friend, your boyfriend, your enemies…? Imagine how valuable you’d be… Imagine how much danger you’d be in… Imagine being an Outlier.
It all starts with a text:
Please Wylie, I need your help.
Wylie hasn’t heard from her one time best friend, Cassie, in over a week. Not since their last fight. But that doesn’t matter. Cassie’s in trouble, and it’s up to Wylie to do what she does best, save her best friend from herself.
This time it’s different though – Cassie’s texts are increasingly cryptic and scary. And instead of having Wylie come by herself, Jasper shows up saying Cassie asked him to help. Trusting the super-hot boy who sent Cassie off the rails doesn’t feel right, but Wylie has no choice.
But as Wylie and Jasper follow Cassie’s bizarre trail, Wylie has a growing sense that something is REALLY wrong. What isn’t Cassie telling them? Who is she with and what do they want from her? And could finding her be just the beginning…?
An interesting story with a lot of mystery, and action ready to keep you up at night.
The story overall was really well thought out, and although at parts I felt a little lost at what was happening, overall I really enjoyed it. I loved how every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, something happened and it kept me on edge.
There are so many twists and turns to keep you on your toes, and I really liked how the characters become intertwined with the story. It was very clever.
I’m curious as to where the next book will go, and I’m excited to get back into the world of The Outliers.
