With Malice by Eileen Cook
Expected publication: June 7th 2016
A read about a teenage girl who wakes up in a hospital bed and cannot remember the last six weeks of her life, including the accident that killed her best friend–only what if the accident wasn’t an accident?
Eighteen-year-old Jill Charron wakes up in a hospital room, leg in a cast, stitches in her face and a big blank canvas where the last 6 weeks should be. She comes to discover she was involved in a fatal accident while on a school trip in Italy three days previous but was jetted home by her affluent father in order to receive quality care. Care that includes a lawyer. And a press team. Because maybe the accident…wasn’t an accident. Wondering not just what happened but what she did, Jill tries to piece together the events of the past six weeks before she loses her thin hold on her once-perfect life.
Part of me was kind of bored by this book at times but I couldn’t put it down. Every time I thought about putting it aside for a bit, I ended up reading 3 more chapters. I wasn’t really into the main character, Jill, but I needed to know how this book ended. This book’s plot was crazy!
I spent most of the book trying to figure out if Jill was innocent or not and I think that’s my favorite thing about this book. With Malice is definitely the best thriller mystery I’ve read in a very long time.
