About the Book and Author
The book is set in an English boarding school and is about the students there. When pictures from a matchmaking event are sent round with peoples secrets written on them chaos is caused between students. Iyanu being the one whose photos were stolen and sent around makes it her personal mission to find who did this and begins digging with a few select friends.
Bursting with romance, juicy secrets and thought-provoking social commentary on sensitively handled topics including racism and queerphobia this debut author explores the fragility of reputation and the power of community while weaving a hugely entertaining mystery.
the story turned into a sort of mystery, through which the characters were developed
When I first saw this book I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it or not, however it quickly became clear to me that this was not the case. I enjoyed the fact that for the most part it was about the characters but that the main event in the story turned into a sort of mystery, through which the characters were developed.
Another thing I liked was the side focus of photography, as a student who takes art I found the parts about photography very interesting and felt that it added to the story and made the character a bit more real.
The characters were a big part of this book for me, they were really well developed and I enjoyed the fact that it was often referenced to them being in school and taking classes which made them seem a bit more realistic.
I would recommend this book to anyone 12+ or who likes a book with a bit of drama and mystery
