Review of People Like Us by Dana Mele

A sharp psychological thriller that's just right for fans of One of Us is Lying and Thirteen Reasons Why--this story will seduce, mislead, and finally, betray you.

Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she's reinvented herself entirely. Now she's a star soccer player whose group of gorgeous friends run their private school with effortless popularity and acerbic wit. But when a girl's body is found in the lake, Kay's carefully constructed life begins to topple. The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay's finally backed into a corner, she'll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make...not something that happened.

Debut author Dana Mele has written a taut, sophisticated suspense novel that readers will tear through and not stop talking about.

My review: 5 stars
I loved this book! It was the perfect amount of intrigue and mystery, with the added wonder of what Kay will do. It was beautifully written and told the story in the perfect size chunks that left you wanting more and more. Revealing backstory as needed and not delving into things before their time. A classic case of who had the most to lose and even then the ending surprised me. Loved it and will be reading more from this author in the future! Recommended.
