The Diary by Vikki Patis

Secrets, secrets and more secrets! This book is packed full of surprises. Vikki Patis does a fantastic job of capturing teenager drama that goes terribly wrong.

Is it possible to run away from your past or is it going to resurface to haunt you no matter how long it has been? Lauren is soon to find out the answer to that as she returns to her small home town. This is a fantastic debut psychological thriller that addresses some  serious issues. We are allowed into the past and the present with alternating chapters helping us fill in the gaps of what had happened all those years ago.

Even though this is a slow burn for me, it kept me interested the entire time. I found it to be a very realistic portrayal of issues that teenagers face each day. The mean girl drama, suicide, trying to fit in, gossip and secrets spread that can destroy lives. Underage drinking, parties and much more. As adults these girls are trying to come to terms with their past and things they have done. Can someone really change?

This book hooked me from the start and kept me intrigued the entire way. So excited she has a new book coming out March 8th! Count me in for that one!
