Synopsis

When she was a child, Cassidy Pratt accidentally started a fire that killed her neighbor. She’s pretty sure she didn’t mean to do it, and she’d give anything to forget that awful day. But her town’s bullies, particularly the cruel and beautiful Melody Davenport, have never let her live it down. In Melody’s eyes, Cassidy is a murderer and always will be.

Then Melody goes missing, and Cassidy thinks she may have information about what happened. She knows she should go to the cops, but she recently joked about how much she’d like to get rid of Melody. She even planned the perfect way to do it. And then she gets a chilling text from an unknown number: I’m so glad we’re in this together.

Now it’s up to Cassidy to figure out what’s really going on before the truth behind Melody’s disappearance sets the whole town ablaze.

Review

Little Creeping Things is told in first person present tense by main character teenaged Cassidy.
When her nemesis Melody vanishes in the exact way Cass had imagined her guilt pushed her to investigate the truth whilst keeping herself away from suspicion.

Cass had me shouting at my book, why do they never just tell the police? Why do they never just tell people how they really feel? Though I guess that would make it a pretty short story.

Little Creeping Things is the poster child for a typical YA, tropes abound; friends to lovers, high school dances, teenaged bullying and all the stereotypes you’d find in any average school.

This book is perfect for fans of YA thrillers, I kept changing my mind over who the perpetrator might be right up to the reveal.

If you’re looking for a light easy read with a mystery to solve this is the book for you.
