Pretty Twisted by Gina Blaxill review-annmarie



Pretty Twisted
Two strangers stumble upon one and other on a social net working site both are struggling with their lives.   Things take a turn for the worse when Jonathan X girlfriend goes missing and the finger is pointed at Jonathan so he turns to the only other person he trusts Rosalind but she is hiding things of her own.  Will Jonathan and Rosalind find out what’s going on before it’s too late.

I don’t normal read contemporary suspense but I found the story really easy to get sucked into.

The two main characters Jonathan and Rosalind worked really well together and the book showed both characters points of view.

Jonathan was a truthful character yet he finds it hard to be anybody without his beautiful girlfriends Freya without her his left wondering what to do.

Rosalind is from a Brocken home her dad is hardly around and her sister always doing her own thing. Rosalind best friend is now trying to push herself into the popular crowd and ros is left feeling alone and unwanted.
Together Ros and Jono find a friend in one and other.

All together this story was just brilliant the book was like a big puzzle and the more you read the more pieces of the puzzle fell into place. From the start you end up trying to work things out, who do you trust and where had the girlfriend gone but the author makes shore you continue reading to the very end.

I loved the teen writing style with lots of up to date text chat and smiling faces , I felt that I was with the characters the whole time and at a few points in the book I completely forgot the book was a work of fiction and not real like I felt it was.
Lots of character interaction and drama going on and all together a fantastic book!

I give the book 5 well earned stars
To sum this book up I would say
Up to date and twisted in all the right places so much drama it felt real.
