Frayed by Kara Terzis

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Fire and NetGalley.
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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!

Frayed by Kara Terzis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Frayed “All I’m saying is that your sister was murdered, and there’s a killer on the loose.”

This was a YA mystery story, about a girl whose sister had been murdered.

I felt quite sorry for Ava in this book, as she’d lost pretty much all her family and only had her foster mother left. It was also difficult for her knowing that her sister’s killer was still on the loose.

“I didn’t just lose a sister and a friend, but a protector too.”

The storyline in this was about Ava struggling after her sister’s death, as well as the mystery surrounding the murder. We also got a storyline involving a gang of girls, and a bit of a love triangle concerning Ava’s boyfriend Jackson, which was pretty shocking given the situation Ava was in. The story was enjoyable, and the pace was about right, although I would have liked a bit more intrigue.

“Don’t let what happened to Kesley change you.” My fingers tightened on the doorknob. I didn’t answer, but all I could think was: I think it already has.”

The ending to this was okay, although I’m pretty sure I’ve read other books with a very, very similar twist at the end.

6.5 out of 10
