"3.5/5 i did really enjoy this one, (possible spoilers) it just felt like not everything was connected or as cohesive as i wanted it to be. i thought that there would be some big things lot twist and someone was plotting against the girls and trying to kill them because of something they did or something. there just weren’t enough layers to the mystery for me to really enjoy it, nevertheless i would still recommend to people who are new to mystery!"
