Frayed by Kara Terzis

Dear Kesley,

My therapist tells me I should write you a letter. Like flushing all my thoughts and feelings out of my system and onto paper. I tell her it's a stupid idea.

But here I am, writing a letter to a dead girl. Where do I start? Where did our story begin? From the moment you were born...or died?

I'll start with the moment I found out the truth about you. Your lies and my pain. Because it always begins and ends with you.
And that end began when Rafe Lawrence came back to town...

Ava Hale will do anything to find her sister's killer...although she'll wish she hadn't. Because the harder Ava looks, the more secrets she uncovers about Kesley, and the more she begins to think that the girl she called sister was a liar. A sneak. A stranger.

And Kesley's murderer could be much closer than she thought...

A debut novel from Wattpad award-winner Kara Terzis, Frayed is a psychological whodunit that will keep you guessing! @goodreads




So now, for me, memories are as precious as gold. Memories like the ones we shared every summer, after the school year finished, and we'd pack our bags, shove them in the back of Mom's SUV, and make the trip to Yoho National Park. Our favorite place to go camping was Lake O'Hara. Remember that time when we sat around the fire while we roasted marshmallows? You said you loved that place because of the calm, peaceful lake, the way the breeze whispered in the trees, the way we could count the stars in the sky.
You told me the lake was beautiful beyond measure.
And if you'd told me that night, Kesley, that something as awful as your death would happen in a place so beautiful, I would have believed you. Because who would have guessed the place you loved so much would be your downfall...

Ava's sister Kesley was murdered. They haven't found her killer. No one has any idea why someone would want to kill her. She was a great person. Ava and Kesley were taken in when they were young by a foster family that adopted them after their parents died. There are secrets there. Terrible secrets.

Kesley's best friend Rafe wasn't there for her funeral, but he is back in town. Why wasn't he there? Could he have killed his best friend. He has known the girls since they were all little kids. But he's the bad boy. Or is he? How bad can he be? Ava wants to stay away from him but she can't help herself. She likes him, a lot.


Ava also has a boyfriend named Jackson who is actually a douche bag. Ava finds out some stuff about him and stays away. But then again... Ava finds out things about her sister she can't hardly believe and then every thing starts to unravel.

The more Ava finds out about Kesley the more she is appalled that she doesn't even know who her sister really was any more. Ava also finds some friends she had no idea Kesley had and they all plan on looking for Kesley's killer. And what they find is not what I was thinking at all and it freaked Ava out as well.

I loved this book. It was so different. There are a few things that people can probably pick at but for myself I thought it was great. The ending was freaking awesome. Well, not so much for the characters in the book.

*I would like to thank Netgalley and Sourcebooks Fire for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.*
