Book Review: Everett

Title Everett

Series Everett, book 1

Author Jenifer Ruff

Release Date August 23, 2014

At Everett, perfection has a dark side....

Brooke is a highly-motivated coed at prestigious Everett College. She is determined to graduate number one in her class, get accepted at a top medical school, and become a surgeon. She is brilliant, tenacious, beautiful.

Everything is going according to plan, although she's not sure what to do about Ethan, an attractive guy who would like to be more than just friends. Her classmates and professors are all captivated by her achievements and her outward appearance, with the exception of one student. Only Jessica, a wealthy socialite and Brooke's complete opposite, senses that Brooke might not be all that she appears. But Jessica has her own problems, fueled by too many prescription pills, energy drinks, and a huge case of snobbery. She's too busy looking down her nose when she should be watching her back.

As the semester progresses, Brooke's carefully laid plans are inadvertently threatened. Her sinister past is revealed, and nothing is off limits when it comes to achieving her goals.

Whoa, this book was certainly nothing like I expected! I can't say for certain what I was expecting, but I can say that it wasn't what I got. Rest assured, though, this is a good thing.

Everett is intriguing and hard to put down. Once I got started, I just had to have more. I really enjoyed Jenifer Ruff's writing style. Her attention to detail, interesting characters, and superb plot make this a great book. I, for one, am fascinated by Brooke and I can hardly wait to start reading the sequel, Rothaker.

This one is a definite recommendation to those that enjoy thrillers.


5 out of 5 stars
