Book Description:
High School Can Be a Real Killer
Break a mirror
Walk under a ladder
Step on a crack

Innocent childhood superstitions …
But someone at the secluded Trask Academy of Performing Arts is taking things one deadly step further when the campus is rocked with the deaths of some of its star students.
Layna Curtis, a talented, popular senior, soon realizes that the seemingly random, accidental deaths of her friends aren’t random—or accidents—at all. Someone has taken the childhood games too far, using the idea of superstitions to dispose of their classmates. As Layna tries to convince people of her theory, she uncovers the terrifying notion that each escalating, gruesome murder leads closer to its final victim: her.
Will Layna’s opening night also be her final bow?

I received this ARC from Net Galley and am providing my honest review

I must say I was excited to read a thriller/horror I haven’t read one in awhile so I thought this one sounds fun lets try it! I thought it was a fun read and an interesting plot concept. When I read the description I thought it was fun that it was based on jinx’s like breaking a mirror, black cats, cracks, etc. However, when I read it I did feel that was kind of put on the back burner and you didn’t get to see as much of that. You saw some, but I wanted it to be more about the jinx and how it got them!

The characters were done alright I didn’t really connect with Layna or the rest of them much and not much backstory on them for me to really root for them besides saying well hope this one doesn’t die. I wasn’t really sure either why Layna had to be punished for what happened to her mother because it wasn’t her fault so why wasn’t it just revenge for her family and her left alone? There was one twist in there that I didn’t expect until the end and it was alright, it was definitely shocking.

I thought the writing was pretty good, no mistakes, flowed well, and did have some good thriller parts. There was even a time I finished reading before bed and then I got creeped out and was like okay who is there?! I like that it wasn’t bogged down that the plot kept going and got to the point. I did think the deaths weren’t super surprising like if you have watched horror movies you could basically figure out who was going to die, not necessarily in the exact way but kind of how it would be.

I thought overall the book was fun to read and I am glad I got a chance to read it!
