I had this book on my kindle for a while and finally decided it was time to read. Why did I wait so long? It was amazing! I found myself feeling sorry for Cicely, then angry with her, then worried about her. I felt such an intense bond with her.
The story is told through the eyes of Cicely, who has a half-sister, Autumn. Autumn is the world’s worst sibling/friend/neighbor/student anyone would be unfortunate enough to know. Cicely begins to feel Autumn may be psychotic and goes to look her “symptoms” up at the local library where she meets a strange man, Earnest, the local professor.
Autumn is a leader. She is a master manipulator. She is a skilled liar. She possibly hurts small animals. She is fixated with death. The more Cicely reads the more she is convinced.
I can’t wait to read the sequel. The book ended on a kind of cliffhanger where I was left worried about Cicely, the circle of friends, and dying to see what will happen next. I recommend this book to anyone interested in psychological thrillers that will leave you on the edge of your seat pondering the next sequence of events!
I was given the opportunity to read The Thing About Scorpions by Tiffany Nicole Smith- by NetGalley.
