The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas {ARC Review}

 

 

There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened there that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them.
    
Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the faces of her demons—and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good.

Tessa and Callie have never talked about what they saw that night. After the trial, Callie drifted and Tessa moved, and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.

But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette—to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.

Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer—and this time, it won’t be so easy to run away.

I want to sit here and tell you all about this story but I simply can't for if I do then the overwhelming desire to tell you everything that happens from beginning to end will be too much for me and I will cave in and spoil it for you. However, I will tell you this; 

The Darkest Corners is a riveting YA read that will blow your mind and have you riding a volatile roller coaster of emotions. So filled to the brim with twists, turns and shocking revelations that I had to put the book down many times just to process the sprawling web of truths, lies and deceit. You are quickly drawn into this extraordinarily written story line with its fascinating cast of characters and you will quickly find yourself immersed in the plot. Kara Thomas has written an explosive masterpiece that will forever be seared into the depths of my soul.
