I thought it was awesome! This isn't meant to be literary fiction that makes us think deeply. This is a fun thriller and this was all that. I think if you want to think more profoundly about this, my take is that the accident was just that, an accident and happened when she was just a kid. And Amy's parents handling of the situation erred on abusive. But her choice to protect her friend and save this other kid from what was happening to him was her finally using her own voice and not playing the victim anymore. It was coming full circle. She had the chance to change the life of someone basically the same age as she was when her life took a turn. She stepped up and interceded. (less)

    Never Have I Ever is a really tense reading experience. I don?t really associate Joshilyn Jackson with psychological thrillers, but this one sure felt close to the genre. After a tragic event during her adolescence and subsequent years of self loathing, Amy reinvents herself as a wif...

    This book got better and better the further into it I got... I had a hard time putting it down the last 100 pages (much to the detriment of my work at the bookstore). I know this book was a departure from the type of books Joshilyn Jackson typically writes, but she nailed it. I was ...

    3.5/rounded up ?What if telling wrecks our friendship? The thought rose unbidden, but it was a valid question. Women in denial shoved at people who told them truths they were not ready to hear. Shoved them hard, all the way out of their lives? Book Club. It was FUN. Till ...

    EXCERPT: 'How far does it go?' 'Oh, come on Amy. A good game has to go all the way,' Roux said, and her pink tongue came out for just a moment to touch her pale upper lip. 'Think back. What's the worst thing you ever did?' ABOUT THIS BOOK: Amy Whey is proud of her ordinary life a...

    4.5 stars This is one of those books that I would call ?compulsively readable? ? the kind of book that, once you pick it up and start reading, it?s almost impossible to put down. There was an addictive and engaging quality to the story and its characters, to the point that...

    THREE STARS Another so-so thriller. I liked this one enough, I'm just not a huge fan of what I like to call "the chick-lit/suspense crossover" genre. Really rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it? Joshilyn Jackson fits into my made-up genre perfectly well. Apparently, she was a ...
