Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
You are Not Alone is another wonderful psychological thriller by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. If you enjoyed their other books The Wife Between Us and An Anonymous Girl you will like this one as well. As with all of their books they focus on women. The different sides of women and how often women are not what they seem.
This is a thriller so you can expect twists and turns, but this book, especially the ending kept me guessing. The trouble with books like these is, for me least, I find I don’t really like the characters. Shay was a bit strange, and I never really connected with her. That made it hard to really care what happened to her. Cassandra and Jane, on the other hand, are easier to get a handle on. Though I did wish I had known a little more about their motivation, especially early on.
You Are Not Alone certainly makes you think about the idea that people you idolize may not be actually worthing of your idolization. It makes you realize that how people present themselves is not always true, even people who you trust implicitly. To quote one of my favorite TV shows, “everybody lies.” I did really enjoy this book and I recommend it if you are in the mood for a good thriller.
