Out of Order (The Survivor's Club, #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Corinna “Corey” Nguyen’s life seems perfectly average for a closeted bisexual whiz kid with her eyes on college and a budding romance with her friend Kate. Sixteen and navigating senior year with her tight-knit group of best friends through crushes, breakups, and pregnancy scares, Corey mistakenly believes that running for valedictorian and choosing the right college are the worst of her worries. That is, until prom night, when she’s left alone and in shock, hiding inside a diner restroom, the only witness to a multiple homicide.

With graduation looming, the pressure is on for Corey to identify the killer and ensure that the crime that has changed her life forever will not go unpunished.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Out of Order (The Survivor's Club, #1) “BOOM!
I jumped in my own skin. Was that a gunshot?”

This was a YA contemporary story about a girl whose friends were killed in an attack in a diner.

Corey was an okay character, and I felt sorry for her losing her best friends the way she did, especially when she was the only one to have survived.

The storyline in this kept jumping back and forth between the past and the aftermath of the shooting, and I did wonder what the point of the flashbacks was as they didn’t seem to add all that much to the story. We got Corey giving her valedictorian speech, and a GLBT romance storyline, but I did find the book dragged a bit.

The ending to this was okay, and it seemed like the culprit had been found.

6 out of 10
