My 2 Pence:
I have met and seen so many people wanting for fame and not handling it… And i do know there are so many people blind by it that they will make a lot of things to keep their (fake) reputation.
This book is a great thriller with a hint of truth and will get you reading page by page quickly.
A great plot from an author I didn’t knew and will now follow more about her.
