Bound together. Worlds apart.

Kami Glass is in love with someone she's never met—a boy she's talked to in her head since she was born. This has made her an outsider in the sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale, but she has learned ways to turn that to her advantage. Her life seems to be in order, until disturbing events begin to occur. There has been screaming in the woods and the manor overlooking the town has lit up for the first time in 10 years. . . . The Lynburn family, who ruled the town a generation ago and who all left without warning, have returned. Now Kami can see that the town she has known and loved all her life is hiding a multitude of secrets—and a murderer. The key to it all just might be the boy in her head. The boy she thought was imaginary is real, and definitely and deliciously dangerous.

Short and Sweet

Kami Glass lives in Sorry-in-the-Vale. Kami is your average high school journalist always trying to get the story. The only thing that’s not normal about Kami is the fact she has been communicating via her mind with a boy since she was a baby. Kami gets her big break when the Lynburns come back to town and she’s determined to learn their secrets.

What I liked

~Kami, she’s so determined and she’s your modern day Nancy Drew.

~Surprisingly this book was funny, which I wasn’t expecting it to be.

~The mystery kept me on my toes I actually didn’t know what secret the Lynburns were hiding.

~Jared and getting to see his point of view sometimes.

~The newspaper crew: Kami, Angela, Holly, Jared, and Ash.

What I didn’t like

~The only thing that bothered me was when the POV would switch between Kami and Jared I was confused about what was going on.


~“Kami said, “I want you to go in there and vamp that receptionist.”  “What?” Ash said blankly.  “You know,” Kami said. “Dazzle her with your charms. Rock her world. Go on.”


I’m definitely glad I read this book! I thought the characters were great and so was the mystery. I plan on reading Untold soon! By the way something I just found out, on Sarah Rees Brennan’s website there’s drawings of the characters. If you like mysteries, with a paranormal aspect in a goth setting check this book out!
