Review: Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

When I saw Little Monsters by Kara Thomas on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to read it. The book description drew me in and I had to know what happened.  I am glad I was approved - this book took me on a thrilling ride from start to finish.  It was so engaging I finished it in less than two days.  I have this book to so many people, because after finishing it, I couldn't stop thinking about it and wanted to discuss it with someone!

The story is told from the main character, Kacey's point of view and alternates with entries from her friend, Bailey's journal.  She has somewhat of a troubled past and moves to a new town - a small town - with her father, step-mom, and their other children.  We meet Kacey as she is about to reluctantly sneak out with her friends Jade and Bailey.  Her younger half sister, Lauren, follows them, as they sneak to the towns local haunted spot.  While there, something so scary happens that Lauren, is very messed up over it.  I'm not going to tell you what - because that would spoil the surprise.  Then Bailey disappears.  Kacey gets involved in trying to find Bailey and we discover that no one is as they appear.  There are so many twists in this book - and so many of the characters are just awful people.  It reminded me somewhat of Gillian Flynn's books.  It's very sordid and twisted and shocking but it really draws you in.  Reading Bailey's journal entries was chilling.  

I have not read Kara Thomas's first standalone, Darkest Corner's - but I have since read her newest book The Cheerleaders, and it's equally twisted.  She has become one of my favorite authors.  Her writing is very creepy and her characters are very human and very flawed.  

Summary from Goodreads:
Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister.

Kacey’s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls—she’s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them.

Which is why it’s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don’t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn’t exactly feel like an accident.

But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn’t seem so welcoming after all—especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers.

Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you’re the new girl, you shouldn’t trust anyone.

***I was offered this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
