[PDF] ✎ All Your Twisted Secrets ⚡ Diana Urban – Islecook.co.uk
ALL YOUR TWISTED SECRETS lives up to its title, throwing a group of high school seniors in a no win locked situation and slowly peeling back their secrets as the clock ticks It twists pun intended and turns, playing out in equal parts present day tension and flashback to fill in the how and why, weaving the two seamlessly together until they become intertwined as the countdown nears zero I kept guessing until the very end, and once I finished and knew how it all played out, I wanted to read it again to experience it from a new perspective. A twisty locked room mystery with an ending that packs a punch The book kept me guessing as it flashed back and forth between the tense last hour in a room with a bomb and the last year of school I enjoyed piecing together the puzzle of the six teens and how they connected, trying to figure out who would do this to them I guessed one half of the main twist, and was otherwise pleasantly surprised The last third was a dizzy race to the finish, and I was impressed that the book didn t take the easy way out Shit goes down A good read if you like escape room tension and messy backstories between characters.

Review copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review Blog Goodreads Twitter Instagram A locked room, a ticking time bomb, and six teenagers all hiding terrible secrets the perfect recipe for terrific suspense In her smart and gripping debut Diana Urban crafts a classic Christie style mystery with a thoroughly modern twist Cleverly plotted and full of surprises, ALL YOUR TWISTED SECRETS marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in YA suspense. Reminiscent of an Agatha Christie, All Your Twisted Secrets will keep you guessing to the end A page turner with characters you will love and hate Simply, a fabulous mystery One of my favorite tropes to read is when random people get an invitation to a dinner or a party and in this case a scholarship banquet only to discover it is something else entirely, something dark and sinister is at play Often in these books the characters are killed one by one, however this one has a twist Amber and five of her schoolmates have been sent an invitation to have dinner with the Mayor when they turn up though things take an evil turn as they learn they are locked up tight in a room Sitting on the table along with the food is a syringe and a note one must die or everyone will be killed and a bomb starts ticking In the room we have Amber, Robbie the school jock, Diego a millionaire inventor, Priya Amber s best childhood friend, Sasha the popular girl and Scott the bad boy Each person in the room has a dirty secret which if it got out they would be ruined During the book, we have two storylines running the present time of watching them try and escape the room and then blame one another as they crack under pressure and the other is the storyline leading up to this moment the past school year With the time running out of the bomb, who will crack under pressure and who is in charge of the room I have to admit I did not see the twist of this book coming and when I did, I felt a little disappointed as the ending kind of fizzled out and thought the revenge plot could have been played out better It was, however, a good YA mystery and fans of One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus and Ten by Gretchen McNeil will enjoy.
