The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas
Published April 19th 2016 by Delacorte
Goodreads Summary: The Darkest Corners is a psychological thriller about the lies little girls tell, and the deadly truths those lies become.
There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened there that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them.
Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the faces of her demons—and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good.
Tessa and Callie have never talked about what they saw that night. After the trial, Callie drifted and Tessa moved, and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.
But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette—to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.
Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer—and this time, it won’t be so easy to run away.
Review: I received this arc from Kepler’s Books.
When I was in California and visited Kepler’s Books, I was allowed to choose one ARC off the YA shelf to take home with me. It took me awhile to decide but I finally settled on this one. After reading it, I’m very glad that I chose this one. It was a psychological thriller in the style of Gillian Flynn, but less graphic. It was such a page turner! There were a few times when it dragged a bit but it easily picked up. There is so much mystery surrounding Tessa and what happened all those years ago before she left. And once everything is revealed in the end… WHOA. The ending reveal was such a surprise and I loved that! There’s almost nothing worse than a thriller where you can tell how it will end right away. I definitely enjoyed reading this one!
