Teen Review: Girl in the Wall (Book)

Girl in the WallTitle:  The Girl in the Wall

Author:  Daphne Benedis-Grab

Summary:  Ariel’s birthday weekend looks to be the event of the season! The only person who’s dreading the party is Sera, Ariel’s former bff, whose father forces her to go. Sera has been the school pariah since she betrayed Ariel. Thrown together, Ariel and Sera agree: this could be one very long night. They have no idea just how right they are. Only moments after the concert begins and the lights go down, thugs open fire. As the entire party is taken hostage, the girls are forced apart. As the death toll climbs, Ariel and Sera must resolve their issues as they try to survive the night.

Review:  I like this book very much, it was an interesting perspective on how two ex-best friends come together to save each other from being held hostage. There’s a little bit of everything in the book such as action, romance, mystery, and comedy. Every page is a surprise waiting to be read, I couldn’t put down the book! It’s highly relatable to teens and what they go through, not obviously the hostage situation but topics such as high school and romance and finding yourself. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves juicy, shocking secrets on every page to come. It’s a delightful light read filled with laughter, tears, and shock.
