OMG!!! This is a fantastic story. One that is magical and leaves you hanging by the edge of the page.
I received an ARC from the author – ANGELA CARLING-in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey’s very honest opinion of her book- ” THE SECRET KEEPER”.
I haven’t read many of Ms. Carling’s books- but those that I have read are extremely well written. She takes her pen to paper an creates pure magic and captures the reader right of the bat. I was asked to read and review this exciting book. It was a pleasure and an honor to do so.
In this story we fin ourselves with a young teenage girl by the name of Winter who has a terrible secret that she wants to go away. It seems that she cheated n her boyfriend and best-friend with her best-friends boyfriend. Now she wants that secret to go away.
So she go to the secret keeper house to make it go away. The only problem is that it comes with conditions. And she will have to agree to all of them. Winter agrees and the keeper takes her secret from her. This is the start of a bunch of problems for her. Winter spends the night with her best friend but has to run home to get some stuff she forgot/ Her friends are throwing her a surprise birthday – even though she knows about it -she is gonna act surprised. Winter decides that she needs to run home to get some clothes she forgot. When she gets to the house- she finds her parents dead and her principal had killed them. He threatens her- tells her that she can’t tell anyone or else he will kill her. ( Now this is the secret that the keeper told her she could not speak of to any one). She runs next door to tells them what she saw but when she goes to say the name – no name comes out.
The keeper also told her that she could not come to her again. But she does- what is the price she will pay and what is it that ask for??
What happens that makes Winter go to the Secret Keeper one last time??
This is a fantastic and terrific story.
I recommend this book for the young audlt reader and even the adult reader.As for Mismousey’s rating for this awesome and compelling book, She gives it a 60 out of 5 stars. I recommend that you go to Goodreads add it to you to read list and then run and GET YOUR COPY OF IT TODAY!!!
Ms.Carling I am so looking forward to reading the next book in this series. There has to be one- got to see where and what happens next to Winter.
Angela Carling was raised in Palm Springs California, but lives Arizona with her husband, three kids and five felines. After years of denial she finally admitted that she is a hopeless romantic which led her to write her first Young Adult book Unbreakable Love. Since then she’s published three more books, Shackled, Becoming Bryn and The Secret Keeper. Shackled won the silver IPGA award in 2012 and has been optioned as a screenplay. She always eats the frosting off her cake and leaves the rest, and can be caught singing in public bathrooms just for the acoustics. When she’s not writing YA novels, she’s mentoring teen writers, making pizza with her family or dreaming of taking a nap, not necessarily in that order. Links to connect or purchase The Secret Keeper
