Book Review: Frayed

Title Frayed
Author Kara Terzis
Release Date June 7, 2016

Dear Kesley,

My therapist tells me I should write you a letter. Like flushing all my thoughts and feelings out of my system and onto paper. I tell her it's a stupid idea.

But here I am, writing a letter to a dead girl. Where do I start? Where did our story begin? From the moment you were born...or died?

I'll start with the moment I found out the truth about you. Your lies and my pain. Because it always begins and ends with you.
And that end began when Rafe Lawrence came back to town...

Ava Hale will do anything to find her sister's killer...although she'll wish she hadn't. Because the harder Ava looks, the more secrets she uncovers about Kesley, and the more she begins to think that the girl she called sister was a liar. A sneak. A stranger.

And Kesley's murderer could be much closer than she thought...

Normally, mysteries are pretty easy to figure out. Sure, there will be a few twists and turns that try to throw you off your guessing game, but typically you can see past all that to the truth. This is certainly not the case in Frayed.

Frayed didn't have many twists and turns. In fact, when I realized I had reached the 60% mark, I was wondering if anything was going to happen. I was worried that I'd be disappointed at the end of the book. I was worried the ending would be rushed and truth would be a letdown. Oh no, not at all! The truth of what happened to Kesley threw me for a totally unexpected loop. Seriously, it was pretty awesome. The ending was better than what I could have hoped for.

While the majority of the book was a slow build, the ending made it worth the read.


4 out of 5 stars
