Review: I received this book free from natgalley in exchange for an honest review.
The main reason that I had requested this book to read was because I fell in love with the cover. But once I read the summary I decided that the book would also be interesting lol. I would venture to say that this book reminded me of "The Panic Room", in some aspects. The Girl in the Wall was a very quick read because it was jam packed full of action and suspense. I enjoyed how this novel was told from two different perspectives, it helped the reader to get both sides of the story. Also I found it awesome how the suspense of who was behind the master plan was built- up to be one character but turns out to be someone that you would never have expected. The only issue that I had with this book was ( it might have just been my copy or the format) the numerous editing errors. I found that every sentence that started with a "th" word: these, the, this, etc... The "th" was missing. So try to get through a book when you have to fill in the blanks: "ese", "is", etc... So that was very annoying. Otherwise I liked this novel a lot.
I enjoyed reading about Sera and Ariel's past and present dramas. I can relate to having a fall-out with your best friend and later on reconciling. I'm glad that they could overcome their issues to help or try to help their friends and classmates. I wouldn't mind if their was another book so I could get more information on both girls before and then after this incident occurred. I want to see if they go back to being friends. Also there was a possible romance that budded, and I want to know if it will last. Or if it was something that happened because of a tragedy.
I would recommend this book to contemporary suspense lovers. And if you are a cover whore like me, this is a title that you need to add to your collection. I look forward to seeing if there will be another book, or just any other books that Daphne Benedis- Grab may decide to write in the future.
