A recent rainy Sunday activated my 'sloth mode'. Which is comprised of lazy day, a comfy couch, sweat pants and a YA novel.

I've been looking forward to Chelsea Sedoti's new book - Tell Me What Really Happened. One of my favorite styles of storytelling is epistolary. In this case it's a series of police interviews with each member of a group of teens.

Five teens who went camping:
- on a rainy night
- in an area where young women have died or gone missing
- one of the group does go missing
- and every police interview with the remaining four points the finger of blame on someone else

Who is telling the truth? Can you ferret out the whodunit before the last chapters? I have to say that I didn't see Sedoti's ending coming - it's nice to be surprised.

The cast of campers are well defined, giving us six very different personalities. Sedoti captures the joys of high school angst. She also throw in a number of horror movie tropes that add to the overall feel of the book. Seriously- what's the first rule? Uh huh, don't go into the woods

Tell Me What Really Happened is just plain fun to read.

So Hawthorne seems to be an awful person.

I liked the setting - the woods, especially at nighttime were creepy. I thought I would like the fact that it was set up as police interviews of the four teenagers answering questions about their missing friend but I didn't like it that much; it just seemed to be lacking. The characters were okay. It never held my interest enough to look forward to picking it back up but it wasn't bad enough to abandon.

Thank you to Netgalley and Sourcebooks Fire for an ARC.
