MY THOUGHTS


The perfect November read...5 boys go out hunting in the morning, a little later...there is only 4 boys left. 

Told for the most part by a girl who lives in the same town and had been texting with the boy who was killed and finds herself in a position to be able to investigate the tragedy via her after school internship-type job with an attorney on the case.  In addition, there is also one of the boys narrating...it's obvious that it's one of the four boys that was not shot and killed...only you have no idea which one.  This other narrator, despite his parts being sporadic and succinct, really ratchets up the mystery.

There is twists throughout the story that really serve to keep you invested in the story, including an unseemly little sub-plot.  Overall, this is an exceptional mystery/thriller in the YA-ish genre that was excellent in Audio format.
