Review of Race To The Finish Line by Aisha Yusuf

Aaleyah Ahmed had her senior year planned out. She would focus on diplomas, apply to universities, graduate, and take a road trip around Canada with her best friends. What was not a part of her plan was moving to a small town in America she’s never heard of because of her dad’s job. What she wasn’t prepared for was discovering the town’s dark history that threatens the safety of her and her family. Aaleyah and her friends vow to uncover the truth. However, they discover more than they bargained for. They realize they might be in over their heads, but they’re in too deep to stop. One thing is for sure; everyone is hiding something.


My Review: 5 STARS

I picked this up because of the cover and the blurb. The story had me hooked from the first page and I ended up finishing it in one sitting just desperate to know how it was all going to end and come together. Yusuf is an amazing storyteller, and even though the subject matter was dark, I couldn’t help but love Aaleyah, and her friends, going through the mystery with them and trying to work out all the twists and turns as they happened. I adored this book and it opened my eyes to things I’d not realised before. Very much recommended!
