Everything You Want Me To Be

Author: Mindy Mejia
Genre: Mystery
GoodReads Rating: 4.18

Who Would Love This Book:

If you’re on the hunt for the IT mystery novel of 2017.

Synopsis in 140 characters or less:

Through three points of view, we learn about the events leading up to the murder of high school student, Hattie.

Why You Should Read It:

If it wasn’t for the murder, this book could be described as a coming-of-age story. Mejia gives us a deep look into the main character, Hattie, and everything leading up to her murder. We see everything from her hopes and dreams to her fears, struggles and secrets. hopes, fears, struggles. Truly a page-turner, the story was complex, yet easy to follow. If you’re like me you assume that everyone is a viable suspect, I am happy to report that Mejia truly keeps you guessing until the very end.

Thrillers like this one have been super-popular lately but this one feels different from the others. I’m not sure if it’s the perspective it’s told from, Hattie herself, or something else but this mystery is truly worth a read!
