If You Wrong Us
Blurb (from Goodreads):
"An intricate psychological page-turner that explores the darker side of vengeance and reads like Gone Girl through a teen lens." - Kirkus Reviews

Becca and Johnny become entangled after a car crash steals the lives of two people they love. Officially, the crash is an accident. But Becca and Johnny are convinced: someone did this.

As they plot revenge against the person responsible, a bond—intense, unyielding, and manic—takes hold of them. And in an unexpected turn of events, they fall for each other.

Or so they think.

In an upside-down world where decay is beautiful and love and hate become one, Becca and Johnny find themselves grappling with reality. Nothing is exactly what it seems, including what they've come to believe about the crash. Question is: will they learn the truth before it's too late?

No. The question is: when they learn the truth, will they care?

If You Wrong Us by Dawn Klehr

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If You Wrong Us “Last year, Becca lost her twin sister Brit in a car accident.
It was the same accident that took my mom; the accident that bought Becca to me.”

This was a bit of an odd story about a girl whose twin sister was murdered, and she was determined to pay back the person she felt was responsible.

I felt quite sorry for Becca at first, but as the book went on I started to wonder if she was maybe a little deranged, as her plans seemed to be bordering on psychotic.

The storyline in this was a little hard to follow as we seemed to keep jumping back and forth in time, as well as changing perspectives, although the mystery aspect kept me reading. Who really killed Becca’s twin sister, and why? Not to mention, what the heck was Becca planning on doing about it?!

The ending to this was okay, but I didn’t really feel like everything was tied up.

6 out of 10
