Book Review Of “You Owe Me A Murder” By Eileen Cook @HMHTeen @Eileenwriter

Seventeen-year-old Kim gets more than she bargained for when she is set up for murder. Perfect for fans of One of Us is Lying, E. Lockhart, and Gillian Flynn.

17-year-old Kim never expected to plot a murder. But that was before her boyfriend dumped her for another girl. Now, Kim’s stuck on a class trip to London with him and his new soulmate and she can’t help wishing he was a little bit dead, even if she’d never really do that.
But when Kim meets Nicki, a stranger on the plane who’s more than willing to listen to Kim’s woes, things start to look up. Nicki’s got a great sense of humor, and when she jokes about swapping murders, Kim plays along—that is, until Kim’s ex-boyfriend mysteriously dies.
Blackmailed by Nicki to fulfill her end of the deal, Kim will have to commit a murder or take the fall for one.

Thank you HMH Teen for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I enjoyed this book, It was a quick read. Fairly predictable, but overall written well. I feel like it was full of typical teen drama, (strict parents, bad boyfriends, mean girls) and some of it was very reminiscent to my own high school years. I think Cook is going to appeal to a lot of teen readers, and this book is going to do extremely well with them, as Kim is going to be more relatable to them. I also feel like Cook did a great job at capturing the emotions and feelings of teen girls, so a job well done there.

Loved that this was a light hearted, twisty turny, thriller for teens! Which does touch of on some sensitive relationship issues as well. Great job Eileen Cook. This book is out March 5th in all major bookstores. Although the finished cover is slightly different than the ARC Cover. In my opinion, I liked this cover much more.
