I love a good a thriller, but That Night is so much more than your average thriller, I was gripped, it is one of those books that you read with white knuckles. Even the cover gave me chills with the tag line of "They said she was a murderer. They said she killed her sister..." I mean if that doesn't capture you I don't know what will.
Chevy Stevens traumatizes her characters, she unravels them emotionally and breaks them down to their bare soul, Toni and her boyfriend are convicted of the murder of Toni's little sister. Toni has to become someone new, someone cold, violent and calculated to survive, the insight to living inside was unnerving, what Toni went through really affected me, but what got to me the most was Toni's mother, hard but so naive, emotionally weak, I couldn't ever imagine losing a child, but turning your back on a child is just as worse, I also found Toni's father weak, but he did have redeeming qualities near the end.
The book's layout was great flip flopping from the past to the present revealing clue after clue, slowly revealing the bigger picture. what a ride, it was a pleasure to read, it was an adventure and I was hooked from the get go. What I really liked about this book was the ending now I don't do spoilers but I will say this, its not what you think, and its not the other thing either. You will think you will know what's happened, you will doubt and blame almost every character, thats a book worth reading.
This is one of the best thrillers I've read all year, terrifying but without the gruesome overkill, shocking you with brutal honesty, emotion and betrayal and what can happen when teenage girls are suffocated with jealousy.
