Double, double, toil
and trouble. Sometimes, the quest for high school royalty can be deadly!
In this emotionally-charged twist on Shakespeare’s Macbeth, a
self-conscious shutterbug named Skye Kingston navigates a treacherous
school year in Alaska fraught with unspoken secrets and tragic twists of
fate. Along the way she encounters three strangely prophetic BFFs; one
social-climbing, sociopathic cheerleader; and a heart-stopping hottie
named Craig McKenzie: the man who would be Prom King. Can Skye save the
boy she loves — and herself — before they get caught in the crosshairs?
the fact that I rated them the same, I preferred Exposure over
Tempestuous, the first book in the Twisted Lit series. I think that's
mainly because I connected more with Skye than I did with our previous
heroine, Miranda. And I like Alaska.
Skye is an introvert, preferring to watch other people through her camera lens, rather than participating. However, once in a while she steps out of character, just enough to get herself into trouble. She ends up going to a party where she overhears something she shouldn't, leading to a whole mess of trouble.
I can relate to Skye, since I'm shy as well, although I doubt I would have made all the same decisions that she did. Craig McKenzie seems like a decent guy, although with a number of problems of his own. You know, one of those popular guys secretly harbouring a bunch of insecurities.
I didn't end up loving any of the characters in this one though, even Skye. I didn't hate any of them (except maybe Beth), but I didn't get a strong enough connection to the characters to warrant rating this one any higher.
On the Cover:
I like the covers in this series. They're plain, but interesting, if that makes any sense.
Rating: 3 hearts
