REVIEW for Killer Drop
Thank you to the wonderful people at James Lorimer (Sidestreets) for giving me an electronic copy of this book.
TITLE: Killer Drop
AUTHOR: Mette Bach
RATING: 4 Stars
At first, I thought Marcus would just be this typical rich YA who everyone loves to hate - but in fact, from the first few pages, there is something different about him. Yes, he is a jerk in many ways and yes, he doesn't really care that much, but this will quickly turn, thanks to one bad decision.
This story explores what happens when you are too cocky and ONE decision, made in an instant can transform your life, your personality and everyone around you.
This book is good - it engaged me from the first and horrified me at the same time, because it shows us how something can change in a heartbeat. The description of Marcus and how he feels and what he hears on the mountain care spine tingling. In fact, this whole book was scary and sad, but also highly engrossing.
