We'll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

We'll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean



That’s all seventeen-year-old Alice Monroe thinks about. Committed to a mental ward at Savage Isle, Alice is haunted by memories of the fire that killed her boyfriend, Jason. A blaze her twin sister Cellie set. But when Chase, a mysterious, charismatic patient, agrees to help her seek vengeance, Alice begins to rethink everything. Writing out the story of her troubled past in a journal, she must confront hidden truths. Is the one person she trusts only telling her half the story?"- summary from Amazon

I really enjoyed this book- it was a quick read for me with all the suspense and reveals that happen throughout the story. Alice seems like a reliable narrator but as the book goes on, Jean shows little cracks and doubts in the story, making readers wonder what is really going on. The big reveal was a surprise to me, but I tend to not think too much about the books I'm reading as I read them. And it's interesting to see how the story ends too; it makes me want to read more from Jean.
