My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jessica’s world revolves around studying at college and affording prepackaged meals, which leaves little time for socializing. In fact, she is quite content without being noticed, which only makes the attention of a mystery texter all the more unwanted.
She isn’t unfamiliar with strange advances, but this is something entirely different. This person knows things about her. Things beyond just an average stalker.
Even after all that, Jessica would be much more content to forget than discover who is chasing her, electronically or otherwise. Eventually, she finds out that she can’t outrun her past.
(Blurb from Goodreads)
This was my first time reading horror. I think I may have stumbled upon an awesome genre!
Because it is a short story, the characters were not very well developed. I didn’t notice anything jarring in their personalities.
The plot was good, albeit I think it should have been drawn out a little more. There wasn’t much time for suspense. I liked the twist at the end, though.
I really liked it. It drew me in, and made me want to know who the mysterious texter was. I would have liked it better if had been a little longer, so there was more suspense. But it was fine.
Would I recommend it? Yes, to 15+ for slightly suggestive content, and because it’s horror
Would I let my kids read it? Yes, when they’re 15+
Would I read the other books by this author? Yes
