Watch the Girls by Jennifer Wolfe

3 Star

Washed up teen star Liv Hendricks quit acting after her beloved younger sister inexplicably disappeared following a Hollywood party gone wrong. Liv barely escaped with her life, and her sister was never heard from again. But all this time, someone's been waiting patiently to finish what was started...

Now fifteen years later, broke and desperate, Liv is forced to return to the spotlight. She crowdfunds a webseries in which she'll pose as a real-life private detective--a nod to the show she starred on as a teen. When a mysterious donor challenges her to investigate a series of disappearances outside a town made famous by the horror movies filmed there, Liv has no choice but to accept.

Liv is given a cryptic first clue: Follow the white wolf. And now a darker game is about to begin. Through social media, someone is leaving breadcrumbs to follow. As Liv makes increasingly disturbing discoveries, her show explodes in popularity. A rapt internet audience is eager to watch it all--perhaps even at the cost of Liv's own life...

Sabrina-Kate - 3 Star

This book was super creepy. NO beating around the bush from me on this one. I certainly was not expecting the book to be quite like it was, and I can't say that I have ever read anything quite like it before.

Set in a small town in California, and full of "celebrities", this book was a mysterious thriller with many twists, but mostly at the end. I really was not expecting the end to be as it was and it sort of annoyed me that some of the questions were not answered but I guess that was definitely on purpose. I like stories to be wrapped up in the end, so it definitely affected my rating of this tale.

For a first time novel, it was well written. I just don't know where the author came up with the idea and to be honest, I found it very disturbing.  It must be difficult imagine such grotesque events as the ones that took place in this book.

Not for everyone, but it would appeal to fans of Cronenburg who I feel the director in the book was modeled after.
