Genre: Mystery / Thriller
Synopsis: Every year, the lives of ten girls at Vienna High are transformed.
All because of the list.
Kenzie Summerall can’t imagine how she’s been voted onto a list of the hottest girls in school, but when she lands at number five, her average life becomes dazzling. Doors open to the best parties, new friends surround her, the cutest jock in school is after her.
This is the power of the list. If you’re on it, your life changes.
If you’re on it this year? Your life ends.
The girls on the list have started to die, one by one. Is it a coincidence? A curse? Or is the list in the hands of a killer?
Time is running out for Kenzie, but she’s determined to uncover the deadly secret of the list…before her number’s up.
200words (or less) review: I think I went into this with the wrong mind-set, I was more for spine-tingling thriller or whodunnit mystery than what They All Fall Down actually is. Halfway through the book I sat back and returned with a Teen Slasher Movie genre outlook and we got along better for it.
It’s harder to judge how I feel about They All Fall Down because of this, also I really didn’t give two hoots about Kenzie. Apart from the end, where she had a moment of finding her spine, she spends most of the time telling us how unworthy she is of being on the list, her guilt over her brother, her problems with her parents, etc… I don’t mind broken characters. I have issue with those who don’t have depth underneath it. It’s a bit of problem when you don’t mind if the protagonist is going to die.
The premise of the book is intriguing and when the listed girls start having accidents in order you’re certainly infested. It’s a pretty quick read and I if you let the stuff that niggles you slide, just accepting that in Kenzie Summerall’s world yes it actually works like that then its ok.
Not sure, probably YES but don’t take it too seriously
