Happy Monday everyone! Did you have a good weekend? I thought today would be perfect to do a Book Spotlight! on a book I read over the weekend, Complicit by Stephanie Kuehn.
Jamie Henry has a lot of anxiety problems. Ever since he was six and placed in foster care with his sister, Cate, Jamie just can’t seem to stop worrying. Soon he isn’t eating, isn’t sleeping, is constantly passing out, and seems to be on the verge of a mental breakdown. When they are lucky enough to be adopted together by a rich family Jamie starts to get the help he needs through therapy and medicine. But soon Cate becomes a new source of anxiety. Drugs, alcohol, rumors of weird mind tricks played on local girls, all ending in a barn fire that hurts someone. “Crazy” Cate (as the town starts calling her) finally gets sent to juvenile detention and Jamie can’t help but to be a little relived
Until she gets out. Until she starts watching him. She wants him to know why she did what she did. She wants him to understand. She wants him to be miserable, just like she is. Can Jamie handle knowing? What is the truth? Is knowing it worth the mental instability that comes with being around “Crazy” Cate?
This is perfect for anyone looking for a quick read (only 250 pages and easy to read) and loves psychological thrillers. Stand alone novel. If you would like to request this or any other book click here.
P.S.- While this was a quick read (I read it in a day) it still delivered a big punch! Don’t think just because a novel is short that it can’t make you think.
