Book Review Of “Everything You Want Me To Be” By Mindy Mejia
Full of twists and turns, Everything You Want Me to Be reconstructs a year in the life of a dangerously mesmerizing young woman, during which a small town’s darkest secrets come to the forefront…and she inches closer and closer to her death.
High school senior Hattie Hoffman has spent her whole life playing many parts: the good student, the good daughter, the good citizen. When she’s found brutally stabbed to death on the opening night of her high school play, the tragedy rips through the fabric of her small town community. Local sheriff Del Goodman, a family friend of the Hoffmans, vows to find her killer, but trying to solve her murder yields more questions than answers. It seems that Hattie’s acting talents ran far beyond the stage. Told from three points of view—Del, Hattie, and the new English teacher whose marriage is crumbling—Everything You Want Me to Be weaves the story of Hattie’s last school year and the events that drew her ever closer to her death.
**I Received this book for free, Via Netgalley, in exchange of an honest review**
This is a total FIVE star book!
This book is going to be BIG, and talked about a lot. It’s already getting its comparison to Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. I know a lot of books have been compared to it, but this one is close, if not better than “Gone Girl”
This is the kind of book that makes you root for the wrong person, and that breaks your heart when it’s over.
These characters were developed so well, the emotions and feelings of them were so beautifully conveyed through-out the book, that it was honestly so hard to put down. I read until 2 a.m. almost every night. Dying to know how this story was going to end.
If you guys have seen this book floating around Instagram, Facebook, and Goodreads, like I had, please don’t hesitate in buying it when it comes out, and please, devour it like I did!!
