Blurb; One of Us Is Lying meets Lord of the Flies meets Fyre Fest in this wickedly addictive and funny YA thriller.
Rafi Francisco needs something really special to put her true crime podcast on the map. She sets her sights on River Stone, the hearthrob musician who rose to stardom after the mysterious disappearance of his girlfriend. Rafi lands herself a ticket to the exclusive Fly Fest, where River will be the headliner.
But when Rafi arrives on the Caribbean island location of Fly Fest with hundreds of other influencers and (very minor) celebrities, they quickly discover that the dream trip is more of a nightmare. And it’s not just confronting beauty gurus-gone-wild and spotty WiFi. Soon, Rafi goes from fighting for an interview to fighting for her life. And, as she gets closer to River, she discovers that he might be hiding even darker secrets than she suspected . . .
My review; This was such a good read. A perfect YA read. What should had been the festival of their lives on a remote island soon turns into a survival story with no festival at all. Bring in the influencers. The famous. It soon becomes apparent there are those that want to leave and those to busy pretending to enjoy themselves to save their own embarrassment. Tense. Survival. Alot of people wanting answers and they’re all stuck on this island with limited WiFi. Do they call for help and get rescued? Do they stay? What will their limit be? Will they all go mad? Gripping. Fast paced. Really enjoyed it. A very likeable main character too with her own podcast who aimed to interview a famous star about his past. Will she get her answers? A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend.
