They said goodbye to their friends and family for the weekend. They weren’t counting on forever.

Jagged Island: a private amusement park for the very rich—or the very influential. Liam, James, Will, Ava, Harper, and Paisley—social media influencers with millions of followers—have been invited for an exclusive weekend before the park opens. They’ll make posts and videos for their channels and report every second of their VIP treatment.

When the teens arrive, they’re stunned: the resort is even better than they’d imagined. Their hotel rooms are unreal, the park’s themed rides are incredible, and the island is hauntingly beautiful. They’re given a jam-packed itinerary for the weekend.

But soon they’ll discover that something’s missing from their schedule: getting off the island alive.

My review

This book was one of my anticipated releases. I liked the concept and was curious how this would play out. I loved that there was a bookstagrammer in the book, Harper! This book was fast paced with twists and turns and the ending was very unpreditcable! I loved that! I loved Paisley, and how we see everything happening through her eyes. Paisley is a true crime/ murder influencer so that gives this book the extra seasoning it needs. The whole story takes place in an empty amusement park and I loved the vibes. I love the way the influencers explored the park and how just, out of nowhere, something happens. The tension keeps building thoughout the book and I seriously had no idea who was the bad guy in the end! I did NOT anticipate this!

My favorite quotes

“The last thing I see before I get pulled under the water, is Reeves’ horrified face.”
