ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS – Elizabeth Klehfoth
I had been seeing this one floating around Bookstagram, so I was really excited when I got some surprise book mail last week with this beauty inside 🙂
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
When I had read the synopsis for this one, it definitely piqued my interest. I have seen it compared to PRETTY LITTLE LIARS and GOSSIP GIRL (both of which I haven’t read or seen…I know, I know I definitely need to remedy that). I have seen this one being categorized as a Young Adult novel, but to me it didn’t read like one. This is a solid debut and I’m excited to see what she comes out with next!
The prologue definitely caught my attention and then I found myself getting sucked into the characters. Years ago, the young wife of a successful real estate mogul, Allister Calloway, disappeared from the family’s home without a trace. Her daughter, Charlie, was a child at the time and was left with so many unanswered questions.
A decade later, Charlie is determined to move on from her complicated past and focuses on school. She is quickly recruited by the elite school’s secret society, the A’s. What they refer to as The Game added a level of drama to the story and I really enjoyed seeing where that would go.
There are so many secrets that were so expertly woven together throughout the story! We go from different perspectives and timelines without getting lost. Present day with Charlie, in the past with Grace (her mother) and another mystery surrounding a classmate’s apparent suicide.
There is plenty to go around in ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS to keep you flipping those pages!
