What can I say about Kara Thomas? How about her book, The Darkest Corners, is BLOODY BRILLIANT. Naturally, as is the author herself. But HER BOOK. IT'S SO DANG GOOD.
If you want suspense and twisties and believable girl-relationship-friendships, JUST PICK UP HER BOOK THAT I ALREADY READ. And come by YA Fest to meet her. Because she's cool.
ALL THE FANGIRLING-NESS. And I mean, The Darkest Corners is WOODSY-SUSPENSE AND TRUE CRIME-ISH-Y. THAT'S NOT EVEN A WORD.
I AM SO NOT MAKING SENSE. WHY AM I YELLING? I'M SO DANG EXCITED.
Kara Thomas also has a rescue kitty cat, which only makes her that much cooler. And she was pretty bloody cool already. And I didn't even get around to talking about her other books, the Prep School Confidential series (written as Kara Taylor). Which I admittedly did not read yet, but I love her writing style, so I should probably binge-read those as well. It will happen: MARK MY WORDS!
By the way, book descriptions are nabbed from Kara Thomas's website.
Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the face of her demons–and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good.
Tessa and Callie haven’t talked about what they saw that summer night since it happened. After the trial Callie drifted and Tessa moved and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.
But ever since she left, Tessa’s had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette–to Wyatt Stokes sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the only other person who may be hiding the truth.
Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer–and this time, it won’t be as easy to run away.
Little Monsters (released July 2017):Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister.
Kacey’s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls—she’s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.
Which is why it’s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don’t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn’t exactly feel like an accident.
But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn’t seem so welcoming after all—especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers.
Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you’re the new girl, you shouldn’t trust anyone.
