Synopsis Via goodreads
Framed for the murder of her best friend, a young girl joins a super-secret society of teenage assassins to avoid a lifetime behind bars–and discovers her own true self–in this mesmerizing debut novel.
Seventeen-year-old Signal Deere has raised eyebrows for years as an unhappy Goth misfit from the trailer park. When she’s convicted of her best friend Rose’s brutal murder, she’s designated a Class A–the most dangerous and manipulative criminal profile. To avoid prison, Signal signs on for a secret program for 18-and-under Class As and is whisked off to an abandoned sleep-away camp, where she and seven bunkmates will train as assassins. Yet even in the Teen Killers Club, Signal doesn’t fit in. She’s squeamish around blood. She’s kind and empathetic. And her optimistic attitude is threatening to turn a group of ragtag maniacs into a team of close-knit friends. Maybe that’s because Signal’s not really a killer. She was framed for Rose’s murder and only joined the program to escape, track down Rose’s real killer, and clear her name. But Signal never planned on the sinister technologies that keep the campers confined. She never planned on the mysterious man in the woods determined to pick them off one by one. And she certainly never planned on falling in love. Signal’s strategy is coming apart at the seams as the true killer prepares to strike again in Teen Killers Club.
Oh my lanta people. THIS IS NOT A DRILL, go go go preorder this book because it was one hell of a ride. I went in pretty blind, the cover and blurb was enough to make me request. I am thrilled I did.
The story arcs in SO many different directions throughout. It was almost like getting a story within a story three times over. Let us jump into our rag tag crew of misfits. I do not want to say too much because it is better to catch it all as it comes but I loved them. I loved camp, the twins, the girls, Jada and her cutting of people, and of course our romance. Signal our lead has some shit luck, and in way plays into the needed someone to save her trope, however not really. I think her compassion was her greatest strength and in turn, it showed out more because of her shortcomings in the physical.
Speaking on the romance its where my one and only problem comes in. We have a love triangle; I am cool with that, but cheating. I am going to try to lay this out as spoiler free as possible. I felt as though it could have been avoided. She could have just not made Signal official with the person. We still would have had the pull and the angst without the cheating. Book would have been perfect.
All that said the story was almost flawless. I will be biting my nails until the next one comes out. It was SO GOOD.
Narration was EVERYTHING get this as an audiobook people because Jesse Vilinsky out did herself. I love her narration usually but this was the best. She brought so much life to every single character, they each had such distinctive sounds that I would have known who was talking without the book telling me. tens tens tens across the board for her.
JUST BUY THE DAMN BOOK. You will not be sorry. Four stars.
