All Unquiet Things


Book: All Unquiet Things 
Author: Anna Jarzab


Carly: She was sweet. Smart. Self-destructive. She knew the secrets of Brighton Day School’s most privileged students. Secrets that got her killed.

Neily: Dumped by Carly for a notorious bad boy, Neily didn’t answer the phone call she made before she died. If he had, maybe he could have helped her. Now he can’t get the image of her lifeless body out of his mind.

Audrey: She’s the reason Carly got tangled up with Brighton’s fast crowd in the first place, and now she regrets it—especially since she’s convinced the police have put the wrong person in jail. Audrey thinks the murderer is someone at Brighton, and she wants Neily to help her find out who it is.

As reluctant allies Neily and Audrey dig into their shared past with Carly, her involvement with Brighton’s dark goings-on comes to light. But figuring out how Carly and her killer fit into the twisted drama will force Audrey and Neily to face hard truths about themselves and the girl they couldn’t save.

My Review:

I knew this book was going to be amazing before I even read it. I am not sure if it was because of the beautiful cover, the intriguing description on the back, or the great praise I have read about it—but after setting this book down I was glad to know I was right (for a change). This book is so hard to explain, because it was so different and unique. I have never read a book like this before, but I loved it! The story of Carly, Neily, and Audrey is told in such a way that it lets you take a glimpse into each characters background and current emotions to really contribute to the story.

This story is so thrilling, at times it gave me goose bumps and literally had me hungrily turning each page to read more. I am kind of nervous to really dip into the story without giving to much away. Before I say anything know this; I am always someone who knows what will happen at the end of a book, or what the big “twist” is in a movie. I am not sure why, but whenever I guess I usually am right. This book really had me guessing. Each time I thought I knew something (and was 100% certain) I would read something else and change my guess; and let me just say this—all my guesses were wrong. My mouth literally dropped when I finished this book. BUT it also made me so happy that I finally did not spoil a book for myself. It was just so good!

All in all, I absolutely loved this book. I loved it’s uniqueness and thrilling story. To be honest, I think anyone would think this book was as awesome as I did. I would recommend it to anyone!

Rating: 5 stars
